Brazil Coach Tite Takes Dramatic Tumble While Celebrating Philippe Coutinho's Goal Again

  • Neymar was fouled 10 times during the match against Switzerland- more than any player in a World Cup game since 1998

How much an emotional victory proves to be a launch pad rather than a false dawn remains to be seen as the pre-tournament favourites made heavy work of a Costa Rica side that have now lost their past four games. But unfortunately, in the end, we weren't able to finish.

Tite said last week that Neymar was yet to reach full fitness after undergoing surgery to fix a broken fifth metatarsal in his right foot in March.

"His joy of being back on the pitch is contagious".

Moments later, Neymar was booked for petulantly punching the ball in front of Kuipers as Costa Rica players sprawled out on the turf time wasting. Replays of Tite's fall were widely shared on social media. He has the responsibility, the joy, the pressure and the courage to show it. "Everyone shows it in their own way". Both goals flew into the gate of Keilor Navas in injury time.

Gabriel Jesus had the ball in the back of the goal in the 26th minute, but was deemed offside. "I think we need to change the coach and prepare new players for the next World Cup". "It became very hard for us".

Neymar is certain to start in Brazil's World Cup Group E match against Costa Rica despite limping out of training during the week, coach Tite said on Thursday.

Costa Rica are eliminated from the tournament as a result of their second defeat on the bounce.


After a drab and scrappy first half at St. Petersburg Stadium, Brazil came out energized and the chances piled up.

After the break Jesus heads an effort against the crossbar and Coutinho sends the follow-up effort narrowly wide.

The forward came in for criticism after Brazil's 1-1 draw with Switzerland in the nation's World Cup opener and was well below his best against Costa Rica.

"We never tried to hurt him", Ramirez said. "I hope that, no matter if he plays or if I play, we can play well". He set up the second goal for Neymar. He also ignored a Brazilian claim for a penalty after midfielder Paulinho bounced off defender Oscar Duarte contesting a high ball.

Three matches are lined up for today. Once again, he just waved them away.

The African side will secure a spot in the knockout stage if they beat Argentina on Tuesday in Group D's final round of fixtures.

"If I was the referee I wouldn't go back on my decision but I respect that because it's subject to interpretation", Tite added. Serbia will face Brazil in Moscow at the same time. Neymar wrote alongside a picture of himself looking toward the sky.
