Eden Hazard tucked home a penalty against Tunisia

How many penalties have there been in World Cup 2018 so far and what is the record number

Supporters were in for a surprise on Friday as Brazil and Costa Rica walked out for their World Cup Group E clash in St. Petersburg wearing away colours despite no apparent clash in their home kits.

Replays soon showed that Neymar had gone down easily under the challenge from Gonzalez and had made the most of it to win a penalty.

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.

"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.

In one particular occasion during the match, Neymar angrily remonstrated with the referee who seemingly responded by telling the Brazilian to stop yapping.

"Things were never easy in my life, so why would they be now?" Congrats on the match boys, you guys RULE!

However, he returned to training on Wednesday and Tite insisted he is not running a risk by throwing Neymar straight back into the action.

"He is resuming a process", Tite said. He is a human being, he needs time to reach his high standards again but before that there is a team that needs to be strong and not dependent on him.

Minutes before the yellow card, Neymar thought he won a penalty when he fell over backwards theatrically after a slight touch from Giancarlo Gonzalez.

Switzerland came out with an impressive draw against Brazil and will look to keep the momentum going against Serbia.

Costa Rica and LAFC forward Marco Ureña told reporters this week that his side can spring an upset.

"I don't know what else we could have done", Ramirez said.
