Live updates of the final games in group E at the Fifa World Cup as Brazil face Serbia and Switzerland play Costa Rica.



Brazil coach Tite is sticking with the same lineup that beat Costa Rica as his team tries to earn a trip to the knockout stage of the World Cup against Serbia.

On the other side of the pitch, coach Mladen Krstajic is shaking up Serbia's defense against Brazil's potent attack. Veteran defender Antonio Rukavina is making his first start at this World Cup along with 22-year-old Milos Velkovic, who has just two international appearances. Midfielder Adem Ljajic, who started Serbia's first game and came off the bench in its second, is starting once more.

Brazil sits atop Group E alongside Switzerland with four points and would advance with a win or a draw. Serbia likely needs a win, although it could advance with a draw if Costa Rica beats Switzerland.
