Costa Rica Vs Brazil Result

Costa Rica Vs Brazil Result is 0-1. Neymar made the only goal as Brazil beat Costa Rica 1-0 in San Jose. Brazil arrived following a clear victory over Argentina, but, although they got a positive result, Mano Menezes' squad played badly.

The rain and the tough play by the hosts made everything heavier for the Brazilians. Costa Rica had the first opportunity of the match, but Winston Parks didn't finish well, and although they dominated the game, they failed in the final 3rd.

Menezes tried to modify matters in the 2nd half and sent Hernanes and Oscar to the pitch to replace Luiz Gustavo and Lucas, looking for more speed in midfield. But Costa Rica were better at the start of the 2nd half and Michael Barrantes and Parks were close to opening the scoring.

However, it was Brazil who took the lead. Daniel Alves - who had just come off the bench 5 minutes earlier - climbed on the right and crossed for Fred. The ball passed the keeper and Neymar showed up in the six-yard box to hit the winner.

The hosts could not respond with any clear-cut opportunities with only Neymar coming close to scoring, hitting the bar after keeper Keilor Navas saved a header from Fred. until the referee blew the whistle Costa Rica Vs Brazil Result is still 0-1. Brazil, who are not playing the South American qualifiers as they'll host the 2014 FIFA World Cup™, will play another friendly on Tuesday, versus Mexico.
