There was some misfortune for the Brazil side as well. First it was a brilliant header from Gabriel Jesus which came off the woodwork and then it was Neymar Jr who initially earned a penalty to excite the Brazilian fans across the globe. But the referee took the assistance of VAR immediately to reconfirm his decision. Unfortunately, it showed that Neymar did play acting and the Samba boys were denied from the golden opportunity.
