Brazil 2-0 Costa Rica: Neymar and Coutinho rescue Brazil in stoppage time after VAR penalty drama

A very Dominant Brazil needed stoppage time to find a way past Costa Rican backstop Keylor Navas and pick up a 2-0 win in Saint Petersburg on Friday.

 


Late goals from Philippe Coutinho and Neymar gave the Brazilians the needed win but the game was overshadowed by yet another VAR decision at this World Cup.

Neymar embarrassingly saw an awarded penalty overturned when he flopped instead of the shooting following a tug from Giancarlo Gonzalez, but Philippe Coutinho toe-poked a shot through Navas’ legs in the first of six stoppage time minutes.

Neymar would later add a goal in the sixth minute of stoppage time from Douglas Costa.

 

Brazil finishes the group stage with Serbia, while Costa Rica waits on Switzerland.
