Brazil v Costa Rica: Group E - 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia

FIFA World Cup 2018 produced yet another humdinger as Brazil defeated Costa Rica in the most extraordinary fashion.

After 90 tense minutes, Seleção grabbed the lead courtesy of a goal from their talisman, Philippe Coutinho, in the opening minute of the injury time. The lead was doubled by Paris Saint-Germain's megastar, Neymar, as he received the ball from Costa to volley it into an empty net.

The result has lifted Brazil up to four points as they now find themselves atop the Group E, having played a tie with Switzerland in their World Cup opener. Their next match is with Serbia who are second in the group as of now.

Here's how Twitter reacted to the nail-biting encounter:

"Sport has the power to change the world…it has the power to inspire. It has the power to unite people in a way that little else does. It speaks to youth in a language they understand. Sport can create hope where once there was only despair. It is more powerful than government in breaking down racial barriers."
