Brazil’s first goal, in the 90th minute of their clash against Costa Rica on Friday afternoon, caused much excitement. So much excitement that Brazil’s manager fell over in dramatic fashion.
Adenor Leonardo Bacchi, known by his nickname Tite, did a double somersault before tasting the grass on the sidelines of the pitch in celebration of Phillipe Coutinho’s goal, which saved Brazil from the draw they seemed headed for.
Neymar scored a second goal minutes later, making it a 2-0 win for Brazil at full-time.
Tite’s celebration of the second goal was somewhat more reserved, perhaps because he was still nursing grass burns from the first one.
The win took Brazil to the top of their group, with four points. Serbia is one point behind, with Switzerland sitting on 1 point and Costa Rica yet to aquire any.
Costa Rica’s performance today had many wondering if an upset against Brazil was possible.
In the end, though, Brazil won comfortably. No one seemed as excited about this as the team’s own manager.
