Neymar and Philippe Coutinho both scored second-half stoppage-time goals to give the Selecao their first win of the tournament in Russian Federation, but before that, Silva says his Paris Saint-Germain teammate had harsh words for him after he kicked the ball back to Costa Rica in the 83rd minute.

The second half was proved intense, as Brazil appeared more aggressive from the beginning, with mounting threats in Costa Rica's half.

The Brazilians looked to be heading for a second frustrating draw in a row before Barcelona forward Coutinho poked the ball through Costa Rica goalkeeper Keylor Navas' legs in the 91st minute.

It was looking like it might not be his, or Brazil's, day but he thought that might be about to change with 13 minutes to go when referee Bjorn Kuipers pointed to the spot as Neymar fell backwards when trying to cut across Giancarlo Gonzalez.

Brazil's Neymar reacts after missing a chance to score during the group E match between Brazil and Costa Rica at the 2018 soccer World Cup in the St. Petersburg Stadium in St. Petersburg, Russia, Friday, June 22, 2018.

It came at the flawless time with Brazil set to face a tough Serbia squad and the confidence they gained with this win could help them get three more points against the European squad.

Neymar was on the end of rough treatment from the Costa Ricans throughout the Group E game, which saw Brazil earn their first win at Russian Federation 2018 courtesy of injury-time goals by Philippe Coutinho and the Paris Saint-Germain forward.

But Nigeria's second-half display in Volgograd was arguably as good as any in the World Cup and came after a fairly dour first half in which the Super Eagles did not register a shot on target.

That led the world's most expensive player to take to social media to explain his emotions. It was the first come-from-behind victory of this edition of the tournament and leaves Switzerland, Serbia and Brazil fighting to advance from Group E.

Coutinho scored in the second straight game and Neymar finally broke the goal line and that can rekindle the fire that may be missing from under the superstar.

Both play on Wednesday at 2 p.m. ET, but only Brazil can get out of the group, not Costa Rica.

Brazil gradually grew into the game, with Gabriel Jesus slammed the ball into the net, but he was clearly offside.

Ahmed Musa gave Nigeria its first win at this year's World Cup, and gave Argentina a gift.

Brazil defender Danilo has been ruled out of Friday's Group E game with Costa Rica with a thigh problem and will be replaced by Corinthians right-back Fagner, the Brazilian Football Confederation said on Thursday.

"In these kind of games you will not have many chances - you might have two or three chances, which we clearly did create and it's a pity we didn't score", he added.

"I think the joy, the satisfaction and the pride of representing Brazil is a lot".
