Neymar Explains Tears At Final Whistle In Instagram Post
By Eoin Lyons

Brazil huffed and puffed in their second group game of the World Cup, eventually blowing down a dogged Costa Rica with strikes from Philipe Coutinho and Neymar.

Neymar was also involved in an incident with VAR, after his penalty was rightfully overturned when the referee consulted with the new technology.

When the final whistle sounded Neymar dropped to his knees and started crying, the occasion seemingly getting the better of the world record signing.

There was a contrasting reaction to his outpouring of emotion with some praising the forward and others taking it as an excuse to have a pop at Brazil's talisman:

The 26-year-old has since put up a post on Instagram in which he laid out the reasons why he became so emotional following Brazil's win:

Not everyone knows what I've been through to get here, everyone can talk about it, but not everyone can do it!! These tears are from happiness, overcoming obstacles, I guess, from grit and will to win. In my life, things were never easy, and they wouldn't be now!! The dream is still on, not a dream... an objective! Congrats on the match boys, you guys RULE!

In truth, Brazil were well worth their victory today, but while it was Philipe Coutinho that made the difference against Costa Rica, Neymar, accidentally or otherwise, has once again pulled the spotlight on to himself with his actions.
