Neymar received the support of his Brazil teammate Fagner on Sunday after his tears at the end of their World Cup win over Costa Rica.
The Costa Rica game was just Neymar's fourth game since returning from three and a half months out with a fractured metatarsal at the end of last season.
At the final whistle of the Costa Rica game, the striker -- described as a genius by his coach Tite and a petulant brat by his many detractors -- sank to the turf, sobbing.
Neymar's emotions at the end highlighted Brazil's relief at getting their first win of the tournament after being held 1-1 by Switzerland in their opening match.
It had looked like Brazil, after drawing its opening game 1-1 with Switzerland, was heading for another stalemate.
