Brazil turned a growing tide of doubts into a carefree carnival when captain Thiago Silva scored in just the seventh minute of their quarterfinal against Colombia. And as Neymar tried to celebrate the goal with his teammates, he ended up falling on his butt.

After coming inches away from going out of the tournament against Chile in the previous round, Brazil called in a psychologist to help the players deal with the monumental stress put upon them by a demanding host nation. And the early helped restore the squad's confidence, while also putting the tournament's hottest team on their back foot. Which is something that apparently isn't very steady for Neymar, either.
