Brazil's exasperation was embodied by Neymar, who squandered a glorious chance on 76 minutes when he whipped a shot over the crossbar after pouncing on a mistake from Giancarlo Gonzalez to run clear, and then saw a penalty award overturned following consulation with VAR.

Neymar has since revealed on Instagram the real reason for his tears, saying: "The cry is of joy, of overcoming, of clawing and willing to win".

Brazil captain Thiago Silva says he was "saddened" by Neymar's attitude during the second half of his country's win over Costa Rica.

At the final whistle, Neymar sat down on the grass and wept, with the emotion of victory hitting home after a tense Group E contest at the Saint Petersburg Stadium.

Tite said that Neymar, who endured a lengthy spell on the sidelines with a metatarsal injury before the World Cup, is still regaining form and full fitness as Brazil's Group E campaign unfolds. "He needs some time to resume his high standard but before he does that there is a team which has to be strong and not dependent on him".

Tite again stressed the Paris St Germain forward was still getting back up to speed following his lengthy spell out injured.
