Coutinho & Neymar’s late goals give Brazil 2-0 win against Costa Rica
Brazil looked headed for another draw in the World Cup group stage until its biggest stars came alive late. Tied 0-0 with Costa Rica in the 90th minute, Brazil scored two goals in added time to win 2-0 on the boots of Philippe Coutinho and Neymar.
Coutinho got the winner in the 91st minute, and Neymar got his goal later in stoppage time as the South Americans move to four points in Group F and have a little breathing room with one match to play.
It felt like it would be a similar result to the opening draw against Switzerland where the ball just didn’t want to go in for the Brazilians as Costa Rican goalkeeper Keylor Navas did a fine job of keeping them at bay for 90 minutes, but the six added minutes proved to be too much to handle.
