Brazil 2-0 Costa Rica; Neymar and Philippe Coutinho strike late

On Friday, The Selecao beat Costa Rica 2-0 with two unbelievable stoppage time goals, one by Neymar.

Brazil (vs. Serbia) and Costa Rica (vs. Switzerland) will both be looking for a win in their final group stage match.

The former Barcelona star went down softly under the challenge of Giancarlo Gonzalez, with referee Bjorn Kuipers initially pointing to the spot.

This World Cup is Neymar's personal melodrama, and the audience were treated to a passionate performance from the Brazil forward, who salvaged an afternoon of frustration and ridicule with a goal that brought on a bout of tears.

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

In the 13th minute Los Ticos almost snatched a shock lead on the break as Cristian Gamboa sprinted forward down the right and pulled the ball back to a wide open Celso Borges in space.

Coutinho was first to get the ball past goalkeeper Keylor Navas.

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 went into the break with the boos and whistles of their 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.

Neymar curled around the right-hand post from 18 yards after the defence opened up for him in the 72nd minute, before the officials arrived at the correct decision via VAR to deny him a penalty.

The clock had ticked past 90 minutes, and the five-times champions looked to be edging to a second disappointing draw, when Marcelo floated the ball in from the left and substitute Roberto Firmino headed across to Gabriel Jesus.

That led the world's most expensive player to take to social media to explain his emotions. With the "Fubo Premier" bundle, you will get access to all four of the World Cup soccer TV channels in most markets.

Beside Uruguay, no other South American team had won a match until Brazil did so on Friday.

Neymar added the second with practically the last kick of the match, volleying home following a quick counter-attack as Costa Rica pushed for an equaliser.
