  • Brazil vs. Mexico live stream: Watch World Cup online

After South Korea defeated Germany in the final game of the group stage, videos went viral of the Koreans and Mexicans celebrating the elimination of Germany together.

El Tri hasn't made it past the Round of 16 since 1986 and has never won a World Cup elimination game outside Mexico. There are times in any game where you have to suffer, these are tough games and Mexico are a great side, but we showed lots of class.

"In Neymar's defence he has been fouled more than any other player at this World Cup and he is regularly the target of rough treatment".

TRT World's Jon Brain reports from Mexico's Tijuana with the latest developments on World Cup.

Neymar continued to be in the thick of action as he appeared to have his ankle trod on by Miguel Layun, who was trying to retrieve the ball and was fortunate to escape a red card.

"With Lionel Messi gone and Cristiano Ronaldo gone, you could argue that Neymar is the biggest star left in this tournament".

The Paris St Germain forward was both architect and executioner for Brazil, who inflicted a seventh straight last-16 exit on the central Americans, sliding home in the second half and then teeing up Roberto Firmino late on.

After a goalless first half, Neymar soon gave Brazil the lead before substitute Firmino put the game out of Mexico's reach during the closing stages.




But which players were most impressive in Brazil's win this afternoon?

After the game, Osorio pointed the finger at Neymar for setting a poor example with his "acting", but Tite insisted his man was the victim on this occasion.

Neymar can lead Brazil to glory here in Russian Federation, but to maximise the Selecao's chances he needs to link up with his team-mates in that fashion.

Neymar had a rather strong reaction to it, some of which could have been motivated by the interest of drawing attention to the incident.

After a scoreless first, Brazil stormed out to start the second with Coutinho launching a close-range rocket that was deftly blocked by Mexican keeper Guillermo Ochoa. Fresh among tiring legs, Firmino was able to evade the defense to get in the right place to score the second goal.

"We know Neymar very well, we know his character and playing attitude and it is peculiar", Marquez said.

Brazil play Mexico at the Samara Arena in Monday's early game at 7.30 pm, followed by Belgium versus Japan at 11.30 pm at the Rostov Arena in Rostov-On-Don.
