Brazil footballer Fagner Conserva Lemos spoke at a presser in Sochi on Sunday, ahead of their final group match against Serbia on June 27.

Fagner touched upon the pressure on Brazil's stars Coutinho and Neymar as he took it upon himself to defend the latter for criticism he received for breaking down into tears after the 2:0 Costa Rica win.

"I can imagine everything Neymar went through," said Fagner.

Brazil, five times champion of the world, needed a victory in order to take control of their group after starting with a disappointing draw against Switzerland last Sunday.

With this win, Brazil took the lead of Group E, and are now waiting for the other teams in the group, Serbia and Switzerland, to play each other in the late evening match.
