Brazil vs Costa Rica

Adjust Comment Print

Serbia is on dark horse status after their impressive win against Costa Rica in the first group game.

Brazil fans believe their World Cup hopes have been given a boost by the news of star striker Neymar's new haircut, ditching his old blond coiffured style after it was trolled online.

Neymar will play in Brazil's vital World Cup match against Costa Rica on Friday (Jun 22) despite injury fears, coach Tite has confirmed. Brazil had 23 shots, nine of which were on goal, but Keylor Navas was sensational in goal and looked to have done enough to secure a draw.

In Group E, it's even tighter.

Meanwhile Nigeria will be looking for a win as they lost their opener against Croatia and need the three points. The second game of the evening is one that the Argentines will be watching with special interest - as Iceland face Nigeria in the fourth game of Group D at the Volgograd Arena, with Lionel Messi's team hanging by a thread at the moment and their fate in this tournament depending on the outcome of the remaining games.

It's Brazil who take centre stage today as they open up proceedings at 13:00 and Paul Robinson believes that they will fare better than their South American rivals did last night.

The clock had ticked past 90 minutes when Marcelo crossed from the left and substitute Roberto Firmino headed the ball back across goal to Gabriel Jesus.

The Nigerians haven't impressed me much and their recent form of four defeats and one draw doesn't exactly fill me with confidence. Switzerland can lose and move on as long as Brazil beats Serbia.
