Veteran Marquez starts for Mexico against Brazil

Neymar looks through a tube at the camera in a training session

For Brazil Neymar had an effort palmed away by the outstanding Guillermo Ochoa.

Brazil vs Mexico Live Score, FIFA World Cup 2018 Live Streaming: Brazil take on Mexico.

Or so it appeared based on his over-the-top reaction.

With Neymar on the ground on the sideline, Layun stood on his ankle as he attempted to retrieve the ball and restart play.

Neymar has scored in the 51st minute to give Brazil a 1-0 lead over Mexico in the World Cup round-of-16 game at Samara. Quite the contrary, in fact.

"Ahead of the match against Brazil, Mexican Captain Andrés Guardado, who was playing his fourth World Cup hjad said", We all know who Neymar is, but it isn't up to me or my team to judge him, but the referees and Federation Internationale de Football Association", he said.

Meanwhile, Brazil, the favorites to win the competition, extended its unbeaten run to 15 games and will now prepare to face Belgium or Japan in the last eight.

Second-half goals from Neymar and Roberto Firmino have earned Brazil a 2-0 victory over Mexico in Monday's World Cup last-16 tie in Samara.

"They stepped on me; that wasn't fair", Neymar said on Brazilian TV after the match.




Mexico started the game in bright fashion and were level until the 55th minute when Neymar converted Willian's cross.

Mexico coach Juan Carlos Osorio lamented Neymar's theatrical antics when Layun appeared to stand on him on the sideline, and said Brazil's slowing tactics when it went ahead made it hard for El Tri.

Mexico have never beaten Brazil at the World Cup.

After their slow start it was ultimately no more than the Selecao deserved, as their bid for a sixth world title marches on.

After drawing their opener against Switzerland, the five-time champions were walking a tightrope in their remaining group-stage encounters, knowing a defeat could knock them out of the tournament if other results went against them.

After releasing Willian with a back-heel, Neymar raced into the penalty area and slid to tap his teammate's return cross into the net.

"I didn't see a Brazilian national team that imposed the quality it has", said Miguel Layun after the game.

"We'll always have a line-up that at very least will have five attacking players, or four attackers and two false nines such as Hector [Herrera] and we know what players we have from the midfield".

But after dominating the first 20 minutes of an entertaining opening period, Brazil came back into the match, bossing the final stages of the half.
