Brazil fans in Rio celebrated by going Tople$$ after their dramatic late win over Costa Rica following goals from Philippe Coutinho and Neymar. Brazil struggled to score against Costa Rica – until a twin peak in stoppage time.
Philippe Coutinho and Neymar clinched victory to put Brazil top of Group E.
Back home it was Brazil 2 Bras 0 as football-mad females turned into Costa streakers by peeling off their tops to reveal bodies painted yellow and green.
But the nation would have torn a strip off their heroes if they been held to a draw by the Central American outsiders.
Switzerland had held Brazil to a 1-1 stalemate in the opener.
And another draw would have left Brazil sweating nervously for their group finale against Serbia.
Instead they look comfortable – when they could so easily have joined fellow South American giants Argentina in the World Cup doldrums.
The win sparked a carnival spirit in the Brazil capital as thousands thronged in a pageant of colour and song to watch the action on a big screen.
