Half-Time: Brazil struggling to break-down Costa Rica…goalless

Mazino Dickson


Despite having a fit-again Neymar on the pitch, Brazil are being held to a barren draw by Costa Rica.

The Costa Ricans, who lost their first game to Serbia 1-0 on Sunday, have adopted an ultra-defensive system that has completely stifled the Samba boys.

Their only means of attack throughout has been to send long balls ball forward when they  to lone striker Marcos Urena.

Just like in their first match against Switzerland, Brazil’s Neymar has been given a “special treatment” by the Costa Ricans.

More to come after the break.
