Neymar hits back at World Cup critics

World Cup 2018 Brazil vs Costa Rica Live Football Score Brazil Face Costa Rica In Crunch Group E Clash

Had the match ended in a stalemate, Brazil would have only had two points and may have needed to win their final game in order to advance.

However, VAR intervention led to a reversal of the decision, as replays showed minimal contact between Gonzalez and Neymar, who had fallen backwards as if pulled down.

Brazil made a change at the break, bringing on Douglas Costa for Willian, and their bright start to the second period was nearly rewarded when Jesus crashed a header against the bar after 49 minutes.

Brazil will be under pressure in their second Group E clash against Costa Rica, and coach Tite has made one change to his starting XI from the previous match.

"In my life things have never been easy, why would they be now?"

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.

That looked as if it would cost Brazil victory until Coutinho found the net in the 91st minute.

He also won the EuroLeague Rising Star and Liga ACB Best Young Player awards for the second straight season. In doing so he averaged 14.5 points, 5.2 rebounds, 4.6 assists in 25 minutes over 61 total games.


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

Neymar fired over from Paulinho's cutback and Coutinho shot straight at Keylor Navas after, again, Paulinho had teed it up.

The three points moves the South American giants temporarily into first place ahead of Serbia, who feature against Switzerland later today - while Los Ticos are eliminated from the competition before matchday three.

The world's most expensive player was making just his fourth appearance after breaking a bone in his foot in February.

- This was Brazil's first World Cup victory thanks to a goal scored in the 90th minute.

Costa Rica will likely try similar tactics to force the other attackers to step up.

Neymar added the second with practically the last kick of the match, volleying home Jesus's square ball following a quick counter-attack as Costa Rica pushed for an equalizer.
