Brazil beats Costa Rica in tense encounter

23 June 2018

Brazil, like Argentina, were held to a goal-apiece draw by the Swiss at Rostov-on-Don on Sunday, a result that would've frustrated their boss Tite given how fancied they were coming into the tournament.

The cat was put amongst the pigeons in Group D last night as Croatia stormed to a 3-0 win against Argentina, and that leaves Iceland and Nigeria with a huge opportunity to progress to the knockout round. And for 90 minutes against Costa Rica, it was more of the same.

Neymar was forced to leave Brazil's training session in Sochi early on Tuesday with a sore ankle, according to team officials.

Hornets agree to trade Howard to Nets for Mozgov
Either way, the Nets current, odd purgatory of not being able to rebuild through the draft of free agency is finally set to end. He averaged 16.6 points, 12.5 rebounds, and 1.6 blocks in 30.4 minutes per game, and shot 55.5 percent from the floor.

Brady's wife, Gisele Bundchen, is a Brazil native and die-hard supporter of the nation's global soccer team. Costa Rica's only World Cup victory against a team from South America was four years ago against Uruguay.

Netizens have come up with all sorts of interpretations of what transpired between the two in the highly charged encounter that saw Brazil strike twice very late in the match to send the Costa Ricans crashing out of the tournament.

Here's Yahoo Sport's favourite images from the day, as the World Cup hots up.
