Ruiz: Coutinho has the same quality as Neymar

Ruiz: Coutinho has the same quality as Neymar

Brazil's late World Cup win over Costa Rica takes them to the top of the Group E but they have failed to convince in their two matches so far and the focus is once again shifting to the South American side's old foe - emotional stability.

The Real Madrid left-back shone and was probably his side's best player in the first half, producing some impressive skills but more importantly, orchestrating much of Brazil's play going forward. Costa Rica has been eliminated.

"When he (Neymar) draws the foul he is in front of goal", Tite said.

The goal finally came when Roberto Firmino headed down for Jesus to control in the box and direct the ball into Coutinho's path.

And with seconds remaining Neymar, the world's most expensive player, tapped in Douglas Costa's cross to secure Brazil's first win of the tournament. His two previous goals came at the 2014 tournament in Brazil in a group match against the two-time champions. "Genuine or not, Neymar's crying is worrying", Brazil's biggest newspaper, O Globo, said.

The question now is how he approaches the last group game against Serbia. The Swiss can confirm their place in the last 16 with a draw against Costa Rica, while Serbia face a decisive match against Brazil.

A 1-0 win over Costa Rica and Brazil's surprise 1-1 draw with Switzerland has left Serbia on the cusp of advancing from Group E in Russian Federation.

Germany (no points) face Sweden (three) later on Saturday. "We want to express our regrets over this decision". Mexico betting lines. "I believe that we have played very well", he said at his press conference.

Tite looks like being a coach who can handle the pressure, though.

At the final whistle, Neymar sat down on the grass and wept, with the emotion of victory hitting home after the tense Group E contest at the Saint Petersburg Stadium.

Brazil defender Thiago Silva said Neymar insulted him during the game against Costa Rica. "To me it was a penalty", he said.

As usual, he made the game all about him.

The referee initially granted a penalty to Brazil.

Though not so much those online - or the ref, after VAR reversed the initial penalty award. Hence his tears amid the post-game celebrations.

"Not everybody knows what I have been through to be here".

"Even parrots can talk, but walking the walk... not everyone does it". It only matters to get things done. "Nothing in my life was ever easy and that's not going to change now".
