Brazil leave it late to break Costa Rica hearts

Brazil vs Costa Rica : Neymar starts as Tite keeps faith in stars

He was out three and a half months and he played the full match.

Only two OMBCs have been chosen from India, the other being Hrishi Tej from Karnataka.

The FIFA World Cup favourites were on course for a second consecutive draw in Group E before a dramatic period of stoppage time in Saint Petersburg. He took the field for the match between Belgium and Panama in Sochi last Monday. Brazil opened with a 1-1 draw against Switzerland.

Philippe Coutinho finally broke a dogged Costa Rica´s resistance in the 91st minute before Neymar added a second in the 96th to propel the five-time champions towards the World Cup last 16. But, after an exemplary use of the video assistant referee (VAR) system, the referee decided that the contact did not merit Neymar's tumble and changed his mind.

Neymar had missed a number of chances during the game and went down under controversial circumstances to win a penalty that was later ruled out by VAR.

Coutinho curled over as Tite's side picked up the pace again, and a great piece of skill by Neymar enabled him to clip a cross to Jesus, who was adjudged to have fouled a defender as he jumped. Neymar has shown how important the World Cup is to him and, to his credit, he never gave up on Friday, even when the ball refused to go in.

"I think today will be real start for us, after the bad haircut and bad start", Carolina said.

Yesterday's Croatia tactic of swarming Lionel Messi will likely translate to Costa Rica vs Neymar.

Brazil fans believe their World Cup hopes have been given a boost by the news of star striker Neymar's new haircut, ditching his old blond coiffured style after it was trolled online.

"The ball came free and Gabriel shielded it well and I managed to score", he said of his breakthrough goal.

Costa Rica are also winless after being beaten 1-0 by Serbia, and it will be a major surprise if they were to pull off a win against Tite's men. Coach Tite, who was watching the game from the sidelines, couldn't control himself as he ran passionately to celebrate with the players, falling dramatically, midway after a slight push from Ederson who was trying to hug him from behind.
