Saint Petersburg (Russia), June 22 (IANS) Soccer fans clad in yellow and green joined others sporting blue, white and red here on Friday as Brazil geared up to take on Costa Rica, a David vs Goliath game in which the Central American nation will hope to make its mark on the tournament.

Brazil remained one of the favorites to take the World Cup home, despite being held to a tough 1-1 draw against Alpine nation Switzerland in their opening game, reports Efe.

In fact, the team, which features an eye-wateringly skillful cast starring Neymar Jr., Philippe Coutinho and Marcelo, will be desperate to win against the Costa Ricans should they wish to avoid any potential upsets in the group stages, as Serbia currently sit at the top of the standings.
