Neymar Explains Tears At Final Whistle In Instagram Post

As 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, it was hard not to be moved by his reaction.

Liverpool supporters will have been painfully reminded of Coutinho's time in England when the midfielder latched onto current Reds striker Roberto Firmino's knockdown to break the deadlock late on.

The 26-year-old winced in pain after kicking the ball during a training session and then left the pitch in Sochi for treatment to his right ankle. "Talk is cheap, even a parrot can do it, but do something. few people can do that!"

"The Selecao" saw off Costa Rica - but only with two goals in injury time from Philippe Coutinho and Neymar. The dream is still on, not a dream.an objective! "Congratulations for the performance, guys". While Ureña acknowledged Brazil won't be easy, he was confident his team could reprise the magic from four years ago. Before he does that there is a team that has to be strong and not dependent on him.

However, there is some concern in Brazil that Neymar's tears are a sign he may struggle to handle the pressure against tougher opposition as the tournament progresses.

"It's not normal to cry in the second game of a World Cup", Brazil's biggest newspaper, O Globo, headlined the main article on its website after the drama.

"It also takes into account the need to keep a certain balance by allowing the teams to use their home and away kits".

When the final whistle sounded Neymar dropped to his knees and started crying, the occasion seemingly getting the better of the world record signing.
