LAFC's Marco Ureña on Costa Rica facing Brazil: "They're not invincible"

Brazil is coming off a 1-1 draw with Switzerland in its opening match of the 2018 World Cup.

Football's global governing body has fined Serbia for its fans' offensive behaviour during Sunday's World Cup match with Costa Rica.

While Costa Rica lost to Serbia, they put together a strong if unfortunate performance in their tournament opener, missing several chances in the first half and only conceding through a free kick from specialist Aleksandar Kolarov in the second half.

Lionel Messi failed to lead Argentina to a win on Day 8 and could be on the brink of elimination as Day 9 approaches.

A tactical game with some touches of "Jogo Bonito" from both sides, ultimately Costa Rica knew the only way to stop Brazil's exceptional striking options was with experience and tactical discipline across the board.

The Nigerian team is the youngest in the World Cup with an average age of just below 26, and although it is the most populous nation in Africa with some 185 million people, the team has never advanced past the round of 16. "They're not invincible. I think they're managing a lot of pressure because they didn't win the first game and so I think we can take advantage of this moment of anxiety for them".

"If we do the math and start playing for a draw then it will not be successful", captain Aleksandar Kolarov said.

The Brazilian model cheered on her beloved Seleção's 2-0 win, and she shared reactions to the late goals from Coutinho and Neymar on her Instagram story. They have to go for it today as a point does little for their cause really, and that means that we could be in for a high-scoring affair. The team did not make it out of the group stage in 2006 or 2010 and did not qualify for Brazil four years ago.
