#WorldCup 2018: Coutinho & Neymar late strike secures first win for Brazil



Costa Rica are eliminated from the tournament as a result of their second defeat on the bounce. They displayed resilience at the back, but were broken down in the end by Brazil’s quality in the final third.
Relief for Brazil as late goals from Philippe Coutinho and Neymar secure their first win of the 2018 World Cup, keeping them on course for the knockout stages. Costa Rica put forward a stubborn defence for the majority of the match and it seemed when Neymar had a penalty decision overturned by VAR that it was not going to be Brazil’s day. However, they kept plugging away and were rewarded when Coutinho stabbed home in the first minute of stoppage time before Neymar added a second to end the match.
