Neymar hits back at critics after tears in Costa Rica match

Gabriel Jesus to retain Brazil place ahead of Roberto Firmino against Costa Rica

Gabriel Jesus to retain Brazil place ahead of Roberto Firmino against Costa Rica

"Even parrots can talk, but walking the walk ... not everyone does it". These tears are from happiness, overcoming obstacles, I guess, from grit and will to win.

"Things were never easy in my life, so why would they be now?"

Neymar paid tribute to his team-mates and insists Brazil remain on course for the latter stages of the competition, saying: "The dream - no, the objective - is still alive".

The world's most expensive player was making just his fourth appearance after breaking a bone in his foot in February and was the centre of attention for much of the match.

Superstar Neymar added a second a few minutes later.

It looked like being the game's biggest talking point until Philippe Coutinho and Neymar each scored in injury time to earn Brazil a crucial 2-0 win in the Group E contest in St Petersburg. Thiago Silva assured that Neymar will feel better in the third game.

Brazil's coach Tite also commented on his players tears, suggesting they could be down to the huge pressure of leading the five-times world champions.

Priyanka recently accompanied the American singer to his cousin's wedding in New Jeresy and was seen having a great time there. After stepping out of the vehicle outside the restaurant, they were escorted amid heavy security.

Neymar had a running battle with the referee for most of the match.

Neymar has endured a hard week and it was clearly too much for him after the final whistle.

Teammate Marcelo had to drag him away after he confronted the referee in the tunnel at halftime.

Neymar has been offered support by his coach Tite after the Brazil star was seen crying at the end of a dramatic victory over Costa Rica.

As the 2018 World Cup got underway in Russian Federation, the migrant crisis in Europe continued, and for those desperately trying to start a new life in a new country, the tournament provided the flawless cover.

"[Crying] is good, I said to him: 'You really cry only when you know what happened to be here in this cup".

"A team needs to demonstrate mental strength, not fragility".
