Gisele was pretty pumped for Brazil’s dramatic World Cup win

Gabriel Jesus will retain his spot up front when Brazil face Costa Rica in the World Cup tomorrow after Seleção coach Tite announced that he will field an unchanged side in Saint Petersburg.

When the final whistle sounded Neymar dropped to his knees and started crying, the occasion seemingly getting the better of the world record signing.

The 26-year-old winced in pain after kicking the ball during a training session and then left the pitch in Sochi for treatment to his right ankle. I cried out of happiness, overcoming, grit and desire to win. In my life, things were never easy, and they wouldn't be now!

The Brazilian football federation said on Thursday that Neymar is just fine and posted photos and a video of him practicing on Wednesday with the rest of the squad. Congrats on the match boys, you guys RULE!

"The joy, the satisfaction, and the pride of representing the Brazilian national team is a lot", Tite told reporters.

Tite said he thought his superstar's tears were down to the huge pressure of leading the five-times world champions.

"He is a human being - he needs some time to resume his high standard". Superstar Neymar added a second a few minutes later.

It wasn't the opening game that most people expected for Brazil as they were held to a 1-1 draw with Switzerland, and that's despite taking an early lead through Philippe Coutinho. "We saw Switzerland were able to take a point from Brazil".

The Serbs were wasteful against Costa Rica last weekend with Aleksander Mitrovic being the main guilty party.

"We want to win, it's a World Cup, but the coach is not going to play with the players' health".
