St. Petersburg, June 22 (IBNS):   Late strikes by Philippe Coutinho and Neymar helped Brazil beat Costa Rica in a crucial group stage of the World Cup here on Friday.

This was Brazil's first victory in the tournament.

However, Brazil's victory ensured Cota Rica's exit from the World Cup.

With the clock ticking past 90 minutes, things were looking quite disappointing for Brazil fans.

It was, however, at that point of the game when both the footballers hit goals to ensure a victory for the former champions.

Costa Rica players had played their hearts out to keep Brazil to a 0-0 draw for a long period in the game.

Brazil's late minute lightning strikes changed the fortune of the game.
