Brazil vs. Costa Rica

Brazil vs Costa Rica

And in a second half filled with Brazil pressing to score, there were a few times where he seemed to get knocked down, including this moment in which Neymar was pulled down.

The Brazilians who were yet to record a win at the ongoing 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russian Federation, played out a 1-1 draw with Switzerland in their opening game, and were close to record another draw.

Neymar will start for Brazil as they look to put their 1-1 draw with Switzerland behind them when they face Costa Rica in Group E on Friday (12pm).

The referee initially granted a penalty to Brazil.

Neymar said his tears at the end of Brazil's dramatic 2-0 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 in Russian Federation.

Celso Borges spurned arguably the best chance of the first period for Costa Rica when he ran on to Gamboa's cut back but shot wide from eight metres out.

Costa Rica - rightly anticipating that Brazil would enjoy the lion's share of possession - sat deep but looked unsafe when they were given the rare opportunity to counter.

Fortunately, the Brazilians' were again rewarded in the last minute of added time when Selecao superstar Neymar got the second goal with a tap in.

The clock had ticked past 90 minutes when Marcelo crossed from the left and substitute Roberto Firmino headed the ball back across goal to Gabriel Jesus.

Neymar - named in the starting XI despite struggling with an ankle injury this week - confronted the referee on the pitch and in the tunnel at half-time, presumably taking objection to Costa Rica's rough-and-ready approach to dealing with him.

Brazil's Neymar takes a tumble and is awarded a penalty, later reversed.

- Costa Rica had just three shots in this match, with all of those coming in the opening 15 minutes. La Sele will play its final World Cup 2018 game against Switzerland on Wednesday at 12 pm Costa Rica time.
