Neymar's goal against Mexico propels Brazil to another stunning World Cup record

Carlos Vela | The 29-year-old was a member of the Mexican team that won the U-17 World Cup in 2005. For a long time he was touted as one of the world’s best young strikers but never seemed to fulfil his potential. Finally he is coming into his own and

Brazil will now face the winners of Belgium and Japan in the quarterfinals, though Casemiro will be suspended after picking up a yellow card in the second half. Neymar opened the scoring in the 51st minute, sliding in to tap home a ball served in precisely by Willian.

Brazil is undefeated in 4 matches against Mexico in the World Cup, keeping 4 clean sheets against them.

Neymar's breakthrough goal early in the second half moved Brazil onto 227 goals, one more than Germany, who had held the record with 226.

Brazil endured a frustrating opening 45 minutes as they head into the halftime break with the score level at 0-0 against Mexico in their round of 16 tie. But he was clearly irate by what he perceived as play-acting from Mexico's opponents.

Marcelo will not start against Mexico in the last-16 of the World Cup after picking up a back injury.




A glaring spotlight had been on Neymar after his opening three performances saw him miss a litany of chances, frequently squander possession and spend far too long on the turf. First, Jesus scuffed his close-range volley wide, and then Coutinho flashed an effort well over from 20 yards out.

Mexico made a change at halftime, replacing 39-year-old defender Rafael Marquez with Miguel Layun.

Samara - Mexico coach Juan Carlos Osorio believes an unfettered attacking approach can help El Tri beat old rivals Brazil on Monday to advance to their first Soccer World Cup quarter-finals.

Paulinho nearly doubled the lead before the hour, but his shot inside the box was kept out by the excellent Ochoa, who then had to tip Willian's fizzing drive over the bar.

Neymar's right-foot shot was stopped by Mexico goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa only moments before the Brazil playmaker rolled a pass to Philippe Coutinho, who fired over the goal in the 26th minute.
