The first game of the day was between the national football teams of Brazil and Costa Rica. The total favorite of the game Brazil started off the game slow and Costa Rica had a perfect chance to open the score. The North Americans did not succeed and after that, they were just smashed by Selecao. The Brazilians missed more than a dozen great chances to score a goal. Everyone in the Brazilian squad missed a chance in front of the goal, but clearly, Neymar Jr. was the player that missed the most chances for Brazil. An excuse for him could be the fact that Neymar suffered an injury during the Tuesday’s practice of the South Americans, but when you value is over 200 000 000 Euros you cannot afford missing so many chances against a team like Costa Rica.
Luckily for everyone that supports Brazil, the Brazilians somehow scored a goal by Philippe Coutinho (90+1’) that basically put the Costa Ricans in a knockdown.
Costa Rica tried to quickly answer to the goal of its opponents but Brazil scored a quick second goal (Neymar 90+7’) that basically ended the game.
After this hard 3 points won by Brazil, the South Americans are much closer to the next stage, while Costa Rica is basically eliminated from the 2018 FIFA World Cup.
