Where to livestream Brazil vs Costa Rica FIFA World Cup 2018 online in the US
We’ve tracked down where to stream Brazil vs Costa Rica in the US so you don’t miss a minute of the action.
Brazil are looking to prove that the draw with Switzerland was a mere blip on their radar as they take on Costa Rica, hoping to secure their first World Cup Russia win. Add in the fact that they need a victory if they’re looking to score the top spot in Group E and the Friday encounter is shaping up to be an explosive one.
The five-time world champions failed to win their opening World Cup match for the first time in 40 years, despite a sensational goal scored by Philippe Coutinho in minute 20. Steven Zuber headed the equaliser early in the second half, with Brazil unable to regain the lead despite turning up the intensity during a frenetic match finale. It ended 1-1 and Brazil only managed to gain one point, which puts them behind Serbia in Group E. Neymar suffered ten fouls against Switzerland and was seen limping out of a training session, but he’s still expected to play in the Friday game.
Meanwhile, Costa Rica was defeated 1-0 by Serbia in their opening game, after Aleksandar Kolarov scored from a free kick in minute 56. Thus, Costa Rica became the only team with no goals in round one of the competition. One thing is clear – the team needs to sharpen up in attack if they’re looking to make a good impression in round two.
Brazil is the only nation to qualify and participate in all the World Cup finals, so an early exit would not look good on their resume. Moreover, Brazil have won nine of their ten previous internationals against Costa Rica. They only lost a friendly back in 1960. With everything pointing to Brazil as the favourite to win, it will be interesting to see what Neymar & Co. have in store for the Friday encounter, scheduled to take place on Krestovsky Stadium in Saint Petersburg.
