Neymar picks up injury during Brazil's training ahead of Costa Rica match

Neymar picks up injury during Brazil's training ahead of Costa Rica match

Costa Rica play Brazil on Friday in Saint Petersburg at 8 am ET on FS1 and Telemundo.

"The Selecao" saw off Costa Rica - but only with two goals in injury time from Philippe Coutinho and Neymar.

For the second World Cup in a row, the 26-year-old is carrying the hopes of 200 million countrymen on his shoulders and his emotional outburst showed how much the win meant to him, and the level of pressure he is under.

"Even parrots can talk, but walking the walk... not everyone does it". While Ureña acknowledged Brazil won't be easy, he was confident his team could reprise the magic from four years ago. I cried out of happiness, overcoming, grit and desire to win.

"The joy, the satisfaction, and the pride of representing the Brazilian national team is a lot", Tite told reporters.

Thousands celebrate solstice at Stonehenge
Up to 25,000 people were expected to attend the overnight celebration of the longest day of the year at the World Heritage Site. A solstice is an astronomical event during which the sun is at its greatest northerly or southerly distance from the equator.

"It's the same team that is going to start that stated against Switzerland", said Tite.

Citing the Brazil press office, Neymar wasn't scheduled to fully participate in training after being fouled 10 times in the 1-1 draw against Switzerland over the weekend. Neymar thought he had a penalty with 13 minutes remaining when the referee awarded a spot-kick, then changed his decision after a video assistant referee (VAR) review and adjudging he dived.

Victory for them puts them on a great footing heading into their final fixture against Costa Rica, but whatever happens, with the amount of creative players on show, I can definitely see there being goals at both ends.

It's Brazil who take centre stage today as they open up proceedings at 13:00 and Paul Robinson believes that they will fare better than their South American rivals did last night.
