It took until virtually the last kick after 96 minutes of frustration, but Neymar and Brazil have lift-off at the World Cup.The relief of sealing Brazil's first win in Russia was all too visible as Neymar broke down in tears moments after tapping home Douglas Costa's cross for a 2-0 victory.Still haunted by demons after losing 7-1 in the semi-finals at their own World Cup four years ago -- a game Neymar missed -- this threatened to turn into another World Cup nightmare for the five-time winners. They are on four points with Serbia to come in their final Group E outing next week.They have bought themselves, and Neymar, precious time.
