Brazil beats Costa Rica in tense encounter

The Brazilian talisman has called for more protection after claiming he is being cynically and deliberately targeted by opposition players.

The Ticos were the toast of the town in the 2014 World Cup, as they reached the quarterfinals for the first time.

Kuipers laid a hand on Neymar's chest who said: "Don't touch me". Costa Rica have none and crashed out of the competition.

The Liverpool forward came on after 68 minutes of play in the World Cup finals group-stage encounter, with the scoreline locked at 0-0.

When reporters shouted out questions, he briefly said that both Ivanka and Melanie felt "very strongly" about this, as did he. Instinctively combative and fond of chaos, Trump usually digs in on controversial policies, rather than backing down.

Because Brazil's opener also ended in a draw, Group E is wide open right now and Serbia will play on Friday for an outright victory against Switzerland. "We're going to go at Brazil with everything we have and hope we can get a positive result".

A Seleção controlled the game from start to finish, averaging two-thirds of possession while largely camped in the Costa Rican half. Costa Rica doesn't have history on its side: Brazil have won nine out of 10 matches against Costa Rica, with its only loss coming in 1960 friendly. I can't evaluate it, but one thing I can tell you: "the joy and pride of representing the Selecao is great", he said.

While acknowledging that Neymar has had a torrid buildup to the tournament, with surgery for a broken foot bone and a hugely disappointing first game against Switzerland, Globo said the tears were just too much. They have to go for it today as a point does little for their cause really, and that means that we could be in for a high-scoring affair.

Even though it appeared the star embellished, it still must have been frustrating for the man tasked with delivering another World Cup to Brazil.
