BRAZIL vs COSTA RICA
KICK OFF: Friday 22nd June 2018
GROUP E ROUND 2 | SAINT PETERSBURG STADIUM
Can Costa Rica Reverse the Trend and Record a Rare Win against Mighty Brazil?
The Samba Boys boast a dominant record over the Central American side, giving Brazil an edge coming into their round 2 group E match against Costa Rica.
Costa Rica played aggressively in their opening loss to Serbia, and they’ll be out to frustrate Brazil similarly to Switzerland in their first game. Brazil’s Neymar, in particular, was given rough treatment and picked up a knock that saw him miss training sessions. He was back to the team as of the time of writing and available for this match.
Both sides are under pressure to win given the fact that only a point separates both teams.
