Brazil superstar Neymar has explained why he was in tears after their victory over Costa Rica on Friday.
Selecao registered their first win at the 2018 World Cup with a 2-0 victory over the Costa Ricans.
Philippe Coutinho bagged his second goal of the campaign, while Neymar rounded off the scoring.
The Paris Saint-Germain superstar was pictured crying at the full-time whistle, but he has since taken to social media to explain they were tears of joy.
“Not everyone knows what I’ve come through to get here,” the player tweeted.
“The cry is joy, overcoming. In my life things have never been easy, would not be now right! The dream continues, not dream, OBJECTIVE! Congratulations on the match.”
Nem todos sabem o q passei pra chegar até aqui,falar até papagaio fala, agora fazer…O choro é de alegria, de superação, de garra.
