Mexico coach rips 'clown' Neymar for milking injury

Brazil injury news Marcelo loses fitness battle to start vs Mexico

Of course, Neymar and his Brazil side managed to scrape a 2-0 win against Mexico thanks to goals from himself and Roberto Firmino.

Following the match, Neymar stated: "I think it's more an attempt to undermine me than anything else".

Layun became frustrated by Neymar's brilliance, even deliberately stepping on the superstar's ankle off the ball, but fortunately escaped punishment.

The 11tegen11 graphic shows just how stingy Brazil were with the shots they allowed.

"This is one of the most important points that we must learn from for future occasions, don't leave things undone". The world's most expensive player has 11 goals and nine assists in his last 19 games for Brazil. "I think this is a real shame for football, especially for kids who are watching because this has to be a sport of virility, of determination, a man's sport, like other games, and not a charade".

'The referee gave too many fake fouls. It's rare to see a manager take his assistant to press conferences with him but Tite would rather be effective than traditional.

Former Germany striker Jurgen Klinsmann: "If you look at the whole game, how many fouls were there on Neymar?"

"I don't care much for criticism, or praise, because this can influence your attitude", he said. "I need to help my team, I have to play I have to play".

Brazil, who will have to do without defensive midfielder Casemiro in the quarters after he picked up his second booking, had to wait until the 88th minute to put the match to bed. Credit must also be given to Tite, who made sure that the team's defence was sorted before the tournament.

Guillermo Ochoa of Mexico makes a save during the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia Round of 16 match between Brazil and Mexico at Samara Arena on July 2, 2018 in Samara, Russia.

The breakthrough came shortly after half-time when Willian fired in a unsafe cross from the left after speeding past Ayala, with Neymar sliding in behind team-mate Gabriel Jesus to poke Brazil in front.

Neymar, realising that his "performance" was not good enough, got up and started playing as if nothing had happened.

As the half wore on, Mexico's intensity deceased and the game opened up for Brazil. Osorio had vowed on Sunday that Mexico wouldn't stop attacking Brazil but he was also vary of the goal-scoring threats posed by Brazil. Midway through a sleek second half from Brazil, a commotion broke out in front of the Mexico bench and it took a matter of seconds to work out who lay at its heart.
