Brazil’s win against Costa Rica turns Neymar and Tweeple emotional

Brazil’s win against Costa Rica turns Neymar and Tweeple emotional

Brazil had been thwarted on multiple occasions in the second period, with Gabriel Jesus hitting the crossbar and Keylor Navas saving from Neymar, who was once more centre stage when his successful penalty appeal was overturned upon review from the video assistant referee.

And his players clearly respect him, with Coutinho and captain Thiago Silva speaking of how the team is learning to keep going right to the final whistle.

And Brazil once again managed to repeat their heroics over Costa Rica with a convincing two injury-time goals.

However, late on the 30-year-old was also caught on camera shoving Costa Rica's Johnny Acosta in the face in an off-the-ball incident.

Moments later, Neymar was booked for petulantly punching the ball in front of Kuipers as Costa Rica players sprawled out on the turf time wasting.

He also came in for some criticism for his drab performance in the match, although his first goal of the World Cup has gone some way to relieving the pressure on his shoulders. He set up the second goal for Neymar. "I thought I was going to have a heart attack, but we took care of the game in the Brazilian way".

Marcelo's tame shot straight at Navas just before halftime was the first effort on target from either side, while Celso Borges spurned the best chance of the half for Costa Rica when he ran on to Gamboa's cut back but shot wide.

There have been talks of players unrest in the Costa Rican team but coach Oscar Ramirez has played down those reports.

Neymar said his tears at the end of Brazil's dramatic win over Costa Rica were "out of happiness" but underlined the struggle he endured to get fit in time to play at the World Cup.

Liverpool's Roberto Firmino presents an attractive alternative in the number nine position for the final round-robin match against Serbia. "I hope that, no matter if he plays or if I play, we can play well".

Neymar, receiving from Philippe, nearly scored before he took out Keylor Navas amid scramble.

After drawing their first game Brazil needed a victory to safeguard their passage through to the last-16 and Philippe Coutinho grabbed a crucial opener in the 91st minute to put his side ahead.

However, those worries will be squashed as he is believed to have been back training and is expected to play against Costa Rica. Romario was the team's top striker when Brazil won the 1994 World Cup in the United States.

As early as in the third minute of the match, Brazil missed two chances when forward Bryan Ruiz lost the ball on the edge of the box and Philippe Coutinho's shot went over the goal post.

Brazil's next game is against Serbia on Wednesday.
