Neymar mocked after epic fall in Brazil game against Costa Rica

Ultimately, the talented Brazil side broke through in injury time to score twice and secure a hard-earned 2-0 victory over Costa Rica.

And Brazil returned to the field with added goal after the break, with Jesus heading against the crossbar before Navas diverted Coutinho's follow-up wide.

The seleção saw chances from Gabriel Jesus, Coutinho, and several shots from Neymar, who just missed breaking the game open on a multitude of occasions.

Neymar, overcome by emotion on the whistle, covered his face with his hands as tears streamed down his cheeks.

Even when the experienced official did give Neymar the benefit of the doubt, technology did not.

Neymar earned a penalty decision in the second half, but it was chalked off after a review by the VAR system, and Tite thought it should have stood.

Moments later, Neymar was booked for petulantly punching the ball in front of Kuipers as Costa Rica players sprawled out on the turf time wasting.

With Brazil increasingly trying their luck from outside the box as Costa Rica defended with discipline, Willian shot over and Navas saved Marcelo's low strike.

He has now taken to his Instagram page, to clear up speculations.

The ex-Ballon d'Or victor is visiting the Brazilian camp on a regular basis, where he talks to Neymar and spends private time with the 26-year-old.

That was an apt reflection of how tense the match had been, with Costa Rica's flat-back five keeping Neymar on the periphery, as Johan Venegas and Cristian Gamboa man-marked him out of the game.

"He'll now be a lot more relaxed for the third game".

Neymar had a running battle with the referee for most of the match. He was out three and a half months and he played the full match. "Congratulations on the game, boys, you are the best".

There remains the risk the South Americans will have boarded their plane home by the time he peaks again. Brazil and Switzerland are expected to progress to the knockout stage beginning June 30th.

Billed as one of the tournament favorites in Russia, Brazil has four points heading into its last group game against Serbia next Wednesday.

Having fractured the fifth metatarsal bone in his right foot back in February, there was serious doubt as to whether Neymar would recover in time for this competition.
