Neymar needs more time - Brazil coach

South American giants' Brazil finally got a well-deserved win after Philippe Coutinho and Neymar's extra time goals helped break down the hard fighting Costa Rica.

Brazil's Neymar attempts to draw a penalty against Costa Rica's Giancarlo Gonzalez after minimal contact in the box.

Dutch referee Bjorn Kuipers pointed to the spot before heeding the protests of the Costa Rican players and consulting the video assistant referee (VAR).

Philippe Coutinho scored in the first minute of stoppage time, and Neymar followed six minutes later to give Brazil a 2-0 victory over Costa Rica on Friday (Saturday NZ Time) at the Fifa World Cup.

That led the world's most expensive player to take to social media to explain his emotions. "I was going to celebrate with them but I had to limp back".

Against England in their World Cup warm-up friendly, they looked lost for most of the game, and they never really got going against Croatia, either.

"We don't need referees to win the game". To me, it was a penalty.

"He is resuming a process", Tite said.

He added: "I just went to my corner and waited for the adrenaline to calm down". "He has the responsibility, the pressure".

"Every person shows it the way they can". I, for example, am an emotive guy, but each one has his own characteristics.

Brazil has four points in Group E and plays Serbia in its final match in Moscow on Wednesday (Thursday NZT). You have to think we were playing against the second best team in the world.

"We had a plan, strategy, idea to control the opponent with and without ball", Costa Rica coach Oscar Ramirez said. He was three-and-a-half months out with injury.

"He's a human being, he needs some time to resume his high standard. Before then there is a team that has to be strong and not depend on him".

The forward came in for criticism after Brazil's 1-1 draw with Switzerland in the nation's World Cup opener and was well below his best against Costa Rica.

And thanks to over-excited second-choice goalkeeper Ederson also losing his shit and jumping off the bench, the 57-year old went tumbling to the ground in one of the most hilarious moments of this summer's showpiece. "The ball came free and Gabriel shielded it well and I managed to score".

Costa Rica were defending in numbers and were relying on occasional counter-attacks, though they never really seemed threatening.
