Neymar can't take sole responsibility for Brazil: Coach

Neymar can't take sole responsibility for Brazil: Coach

Neymar rounded off Brazil's victory with a superb volley, finding the back of the net after numerous attacking efforts.

"I think you have to let it out, a great weight was lifted off our shoulders", Thiago Silva said, in quotes reported by Globo's website.

In the intervening period, Neymar also audaciously completed a rainbow flick over the head of Costa Rica substitute Yeltsin Tejeda and fell to his knees in emotional scenes at the final whistle. In danger of ending in a draw, Brazil seemed nervous but composed itself through the seven minutes of injury time.

On Friday evening, it was Coutinho who scored the opening goal for Brazil in the 91st minute.

Brazil top their group with four points, alongside Switzerland, who over came Serbia on Friday.

There was no end to Brazil coach's Tite happiness after his side registered their victory of the ongoing FIFA World Cup in Russian Federation.

The possibility of a scoreless draw felt even more likely when Neymar stole the ball and whipped a 21-yard shot just off the upper 90. If clashes really happened then I haven't seen anything and I can't believe anything has happened because they are all very polite and very calm people.

A few days ago, FIFA's official Twitter announced that the first round match between five-time world Champions and Switzerland (1:1) was the most watched event in Brazil. "We tried to play fairly but stop him fairly as well".

"We had to keep the balance but we created opportunities in the second half - we had Joel and Bolanos warming up in the first half".

This resulted in a new dimension on the offensive end for the Brazilians as they were more threatening on the flanks with Douglas Costa's talent and movement - creating more space for the attackers to move forward.

Liverpool's Roberto Firmino presents an attractive alternative in the number nine position for the final round-robin match against Serbia.

Celso Borges spurned arguably the best chance of the first period for Costa Rica when he ran on to Gamboa's cut back but shot wide from eight metres out.

Although left back Marcelo had an average game in defense, his constant runs down the flanks ultimately helped when his risky cross led to the opening goal.

"We don't need referees to win the game".

The cost of late drama at the World Cup.
