What Neymar Said To The Referee During Brazil Vs. Costa Rica

What Neymar Said To The Referee During Brazil Vs. Costa Rica

Thiago Silva said Neymar's tears at the end of Brazil's 2-0 victory over Costa Rica showed the forward knows what it means to play at a World Cup, and said the outburst would have "taken a heavy load" off his shoulders.

The injury has left Brazil fans fearing a repeat of the 2014 World Cup, where Neymar's tournament was ended when he suffered a back injury in the quarter-final win over Colombia. Questions surround Brazil star Neymar, who limped out of a training session earlier this week. But on Wednesday, the Brazilian soccer confederation posted photos and a video of Neymar training with the rest of the squad and said he was fine.

The Serbs were wasteful against Costa Rica last weekend with Aleksander Mitrovic being the main guilty party.

We'll get to that in a moment. But they aren't ready to throw in the towel with two games to go.

Will He Or Won't He? Egypt Holds Its Breath Over Injured Salah
Salah's presence or absence will play a huge role in how the Egyptians manage to answer the challenge. Jose Gimenez proved Uruguay's saviour with a 90th-minute victor against Egypt in Ekaterinburg.

Brazil fans attending the game are adamant the change in style will be to their benefit after seeing on of the pre-tournament favorites to lift the trophy in Russian Federation stutter in their Group E opener. While Ureña acknowledged Brazil won't be easy, he was confident his team could reprise the magic from four years ago.

"If we do the math and start playing for a draw then it will not be successful", captain Aleksandar Kolarov said.

The remarks seemed to have got to the PSG man, as for the game versus Costa Rica on Friday at St. Petersburg Arena, the Brazil number 10 will sport a new, cropped design.

"When you win a game like this, as the lights are going down, this automatically gives you peace of mind for the next game because we played a great match today".
