Neymar roasted for World Cup con job as Brazil defeats Costa Rica


Brazil will be hungry for a win after their disappointing opening match draw, while Costa Rica need at least a point to stay alive. "He played his first 90 minutes [against Switzerland] in three-and-a-half months", he said.

After a goalless first, Brazil stormed out in the second putting enormous pressure on Costa Rica's stout defense.

Passed fit despite missing training this week, Neymar had a decent opening moments later when his run off the left was spotted by Coutinho, but his hesitation allowed Keylor Navas to smother Brazil's talisman.

Frustration brewed but Costa Rica's resistance was finally ended in the 91st minute.

The forward, who thought he had won a penalty in the 77th minute only for the referee to reverse the decision after consultation with the video assistant referee (VAR), was overcome by emotion on the whistle, covering his face as tears streamed down his cheeks.

The incident came late in a match Brazil dominated but in which for long spells they struggled to break down a determined Costa Rica defence.

With this victory, Brazil will progress to Round of 16, whereas Costa Rica has been eliminated from the tournament.

Brazil went into halftime with the boos and whistles of their own fans ringing in their ears but emerged with a renewed sense of goal, with Jesus heading against the bar four minutes after the restart and Coutinho sending the follow-up effort narrowly wide.
