Brazil beats Costa Rica in tense encounter

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

"It's not normal to cry in the second game of a World Cup", Brazil's biggest newspaper, O Globo, said.

Brazil, like Argentina, were held to a goal-apiece draw by the Swiss at Rostov-on-Don on Sunday, a result that would've frustrated their boss Tite given how fancied they were coming into the tournament.

Even before his latest injury scare, there were doubts over Neymar's match fitness after a broken bone in his foot ended his club season with Paris Saint-Germain in February.

Neymar rounded on his critics and defended his emotional reaction to scoring in Brazil's 2-0 World Cup win over Costa Rica after he broke down in tears at the final whistle. But Brazil's determination and talent paid off in the end, giving them three crucial points, which has them in a good spot to move on from the group stage. Here are the scenarios for Argentina to move on.

Here's when Eid Al Fitr will be announced in UAE
Muslim faithful, steadfast in observing the holy month of Ramadan this far, now look forward to the signal for celebrations . As the calendar is based on the lunar cycle, Eid changes every year and is decided when there is a sighting of a new moon.

Don't look now, but had Serbia beaten Switzerland, Group E would pretty much be wrapped up.

The clock had ticked past 90 minutes when Marcelo crossed from the left and substitute Roberto Firmino headed the ball back across goal to Gabriel Jesus.

Brazil only managed a 1-1 tie against Switzerland in the country's first game of the 2018 tournament.

Neymar returned and scored in World Cup warm-up friendly wins against Croatia and Austria but Tite admitted it could take up to five games for his star forward to be back to his best. Switzerland can lose and move on as long as Brazil beats Serbia.
