Costa Rica fails to repeat World Cup heroics of 2014

World Cup 2018: How to Watch Brazil vs Costa Rica World Cup Live: Brazil takes on Costa Rica

"If we took out everybody who was criticised in the last World Cup there would be nobody playing".

However, Coutinho arrived to poke an effort between Keylor Navas' legs at the start of stoppage time before Neymar converted substitute Douglas Costa's cross to earn Tite's men a crucial victory and ensure their opponents can not quailfy from Group E.

Neymar was on the end of rough treatment from the Costa Ricans throughout the Group E game, which saw Brazil earn their first win at Russian Federation 2018 courtesy of injury-time goals by Philippe Coutinho and the Paris Saint-Germain forward. He said in the pre-match presser.

"It was lovely, perfect", Tite said of Brazil's second-half display.

Brazil's Neymar has been fouled 14 times so far in the 2018 World Cup, more than any other player. "Nothing in my life was ever easy and that's not going to change now".

Brazil struggled to a 2-0 victory over Costa Rica with both goals coming in injury time, and one of the most notable aspects of the match was the frosty relationship Neymar had with referee, Bjorn Kuipers. Even before his latest injury scare, there were doubts over Neymar's match fitness after a broken bone in his foot ended his club season with Paris Saint-Germain in February.

The win puts Switzerland into second place in Group E with four points, the same as Brazil. But I think that was right, because this episode would not lead to a goal in gate of the rival.

The Brazil coach confirmed he would named an uncharged starting XI but said Thiago Silva will captain the side after Marcelo had the armband against Switzerland, despite heavy criticism of the PSG man four years ago.

"It is going to be a hard game as are all games in the World Cup", Brazil attacking midfielder Philippe Coutinho was quoted as saying. "Genuine or not, Neymar's crying is worrying", Brazil's biggest newspaper, O Globo, said.

It's unclear why Neymar was so emotional after the game but it the three points were crucial for Brazil who only need a draw in their final group game to reach the knockout stages. "We have to focus on the last game because that's more important than today's win".

Although left back Marcelo had an average game in defense, his constant runs down the flanks ultimately helped when his unsafe cross led to the opening goal.

The five-time winners started attacking relentlessly with Philippe Coutinho also firing a straight shot in the 58th minute, only to see Costa Rica goalkeeper Keylor Navas making no mistake to save it.
