Roads to the final[edit]

In Switzerland's final they lost 4-2 to Brazil suggesting a Brazil win for the final. Therefore, Switzerland finished second in group D.

 Brazil 3 3 0 0 23 8 +15 9
  Switzerland 3 2 0 1 15 11 +4 6
 Nigeria 3 1 0 2 16 21 –5 3
 Bahrain 3 0 0 3 9 23 –14 0


As Switzerland were the runners-up of group B, they met the winners of group C, Russia in the quarter-finals. The game was closely tied but Switzerland sealed their victory with a late goal to win 4-2. This saw Switzerland move on to play Uruguay national beach soccer team in the semi-finals. The semi-final was a stronger performance by the Swiss. Going into the third period with a 4-1 lead, they never looked like the team that would lose and despite Uruguay's best efforts, they never even got back on level terms allowing Switzerland to win 7-4 and move on comfortably into the final against 12 time winners, Brazil.

Brazil[edit]

Brazil started their world cup campaign as defending champions, in group D, along with Switzerland, comfortably beating Nigeria 11-5, with a hat-rick from Bruno and seven different scorers in all. Brazil continued to perform with a 8-1 win against Bahrain, the same result as against Japan at this stage of the competition in 2008, with Buru this time claiming four goals. Finally, Brazil finished off with a decent 4-2 win against Switzerland, who they would eventually beat in the final, finishing on top of the group with 9 points.

 Bahrain 3 0 0 3 9 23 –14 0


In the quarter-finals, Brazil played the runners-up of group C, Italy, who they beat in last years final. Italy may have been up for revenge but despite a challenge for Brazil, a hat-trick from André helped Brazil onto a 6-4 win to progress on into the semi-finals. In the semi-finals Brazil met Portugal, again, at the same stage they did last year. However despite the epic 5-4 win for Brazil last time, this match was much more one sided and with seven unique scorers yet again, Brazil eased past Portugal, 8-2, to make it to another final.
