Blind Brazilian fan's video celebrating Philippe Coutinho's goal is magical, watch video

Never doubt Brazil. The Seleção looked like they were going to be held for the 2nd time this World Cup but Philippe Coutinho popped up in the 91st minute to hand them the lead.

Brazil forward Neymar broke down and wept uncontrollably on the pitch at the end of his team's hard-fought 2-0 win over Costa Rica on Friday.

Tite said his tears could be down to the huge pressure of leading the five-times world champions.

Neymar has since sent a message of encouragement to the Brazilian fans, who were depserate for a win after the draw against Switzerland.

There was an injury scare after he limped out of Tuesday's training session with a sore ankle but to his team's relief the forward is expected to be fit for what could be Brazil's fourth World Cup match without a win.

"I wouldn't like there to be hard fouls on Neymar, the boys know that well", said Ramirez. "He's already speeded up that process".

"If we took out everybody who was criticised in the last World Cup there would be nobody playing".

The win puts Switzerland into second place in Group E with four points, the same as Brazil.

"Absolutely not. The information you got is not true", Tite shouted, his voice rising steeply as he called it a lie.

Leaky Spain count luck at topping group
Portugal and Spain are the two best teams in the world but we presented our team at the World Cup very well. If not, there's a major mistake.

Then Phillippe Coutinho clipped an overhead pass, and Neymar bore the ball to charge down to the box.

"I'm not going to take Neymar's initiative away from him".

Anything but victory could leave Brazil, one of the title favorites in Russian Federation, in a hard position to advance from the group stage. Serbia and Brazil then meet on Wednesday in Moscow.

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.

Tite also denied he had asked Neymar to alter his attacking style to better serve the team after the disappointing draw. "You can't run away from that".

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.

Though not so much those online - or the ref, after VAR reversed the initial penalty award.

In Russia, he's urging his teammates to be courageous.

Brazil went into the break with the boos and whistles of their fans ringing in their ears but emerged with a renewed sense of goal, with Jesus heading against the bar four minutes after the restart and Coutinho sending the follow-up effort narrowly wide. "The fight is on".
