The World Cup group stage rolled on with one of the tournament’s biggest favorites and its smallest nation in action on Friday.

In the opener on match day 9, Brazil edged Costa Rica, 2-0, with Coutinho and Neymar both netting late goals to settle a nervy affair. In the middle game, Nigeria brought upstart Iceland, riding high off a surprise draw with Argentina, back to earth. Wrapping up the Friday schedule, Switzerland surged past Serbia in the second half.
