To many, the World Cup is all about which teams score the most goals, and we've already seen England beat Iran 6-2 and Spain beat Costa Rica 7-0. Aside from the top goal-scoring teams, I believe it is fair to recognise those teams that have block-solid defences and are yet to concede in the Qatar World Cup. Thus far, only Brazil and Uruguay, who play today, have not conceded a goal. Uruguay takes on Portugal, and it is almost certain that they will concede goals; Portugal has a penchant for scoring goals, as seen below.
If Uruguay concedes goals against Portugal, Brazil may be the only team yet to concede a goal, as Switzerland is unlikely to get a sniff of Alisson Becker. Brazil has only conceded two goals in its last five games while scoring sixteen. Switzerland is unlikely to trouble Brazil, and many pundits believe the European side will struggle to contain the South American side. Brazil is known for its attacking prowess, but its defence deserves recognition as well.
Sir Alex Ferguson once said, "Attack wins you games, defence wins you titles."
