SAINT PETERSBURG, Russia (AP) — Brazil and Costa Rica were locked at 0-0 at halftime in their second group game at the World Cup.

The Brazilians were having problems breaking down Costa Rica's packed defense, with Neymar also getting frustrated at some strong tackling — he was fouled three times in a five-minute span.

Neymar was fouled 10 times in Brazil's opening 1-1 draw with Switzerland.

Brazil striker Gabriel Jesus had a goal disallowed for offside, while Costa Rica's best chance saw Celso Borges drag a shot wide following a cut-back.

The half ended with Neymar, surrounded by his teammates, remonstrating with referee Bjorn Kuipers. Costa Rica, a World Cup quarterfinalist in 2014, lost 1-0 to Serbia in its opening game.
