Firmino helps Brazil to late win over Costa Rica

Gabriel Jesus to retain Brazil place ahead of Roberto Firmino against Costa Rica

Neymar is a very skilled player and it's true that people have tried to stop him a little aggressively. To do so, captain Aron Gunnarsson said, Iceland must forget about the Argentina match.

"We haven't spoken about (it being a must-win game)", he told reporters after a training session.

Coutinho scores for Brazil in stoppage time to save Brazil an embarrassing stalemate.

A penalty decision is overturned by the video assistant referee (VAR), after Neymar was thought to have been fouled in the penalty box.

7 - While it clearly was the late show from Brazil, the statistics back it up, too. Costa Rica performed well but fell agonisingly short against one of the tournament favourites. Costa Rica doesn't have history on its side: Brazil has won nine out of 10 matches against Costa Rica, with its only loss coming in a 1960 friendly.

He played the full 90 minutes of Brazil's 1-1 draw with Switzerland, a game in which he became the most fouled player at the World Cup in the last 20 years, but missed training on Monday.

With the team's top star not expected to be at his best again for the game against Costa Rica on Friday, Coutinho says it is time for another match-winner to step forward and try to lead the five-time champions. 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.

Argentina and Iceland both have one point from their opening game draw, while Nigeria will be playing to get their first point, having lost the opening game to Croatia. "We saw Switzerland were able to take a point from Brazil".
