An off-colour Brazil needed dramatic late goals by Philippe Coutinho and Neymar to earn their first win of the World Cup and go to the top of Group E with four points.

When the final whistle sounded Neymar dropped to his knees and started crying, the occasion seemingly getting the better of the world record signing. "Talk is cheap, even a parrot can do it, but do something. few people can do that!"

Brazil coach Tite warned his country not to heap too much responsibility on Neymar's slight shoulders after the forward was often involved in discussions with the referee, frequently gesticulating and falling down when tackled. These tears are from happiness, overcoming obstacles, I guess, from grit and will to win.

They won't have it easy against the Swiss however, as Vladimir Petković's side took on their toughest opponent in their opener and came away unscathed. Congrats on the match boys, you guys RULE!

A GIF of the tumble instantly shot around Brazilian social media with WAGs asking if Tite himself hadn't been teaching Neymar how to dive.

I was personally very low on him this season since he gave up over three goals per game, but has looked elite in the playoffs. Three of those players had multi-point games. - 10 different players recorded a point in their Game 4 win.

"He needs some time to resume his high standard".

And in a second half filled with Brazil pressing to score, there were a few times where he seemed to get knocked down, including this moment in which Neymar was pulled down.

Next up in Group E for the Ticos: Brazil, a pre-tournament favorite, but a team that also struggled in their opening game, managing just a draw against Switzerland.
