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

Gabriel Jesus to retain Brazil place ahead of Roberto Firmino against Costa Rica

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.

Konta beats Vekic to reach Nature Valley Open final
Konta didn't let the improvement of her opponent phase her answering with a shutout in the second game. The British No. 1 won only one more point as Barty clinched victory with a backhand pass.

"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.
