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.
The relief of sealing Brazil's first win in Russian Federation was all too visible as Neymar broke down in tears moments after tapping home Douglas Costa's cross for victory.
However, there is some concern in Brazil that Neymar's tears are a sign he may struggle to handle the pressure against tougher opposition as the tournament progresses.

Brazil, one of the favourites for the World Cup, could only manage a draw in their opening Group E match against Switzerland as Neymar played in just his second game since breaking a bone in his foot in February. "Genuine or not, Neymar's crying is worrying", Brazil's biggest newspaper, O Globo, said. That changed the dynamics of the game and Brazil were all over Costa Rica.
While the second goal did flatter Brazil a bit, they will be over the top for with three points in the bag, they can now begin to express themselves better in their final group stage game. "He took a heavy load off his back", Silva said.
