Brazil beat Mexico to reach quarterfinals; Tweeple celebrate with Neymar memes

Brazil injury news Marcelo loses fitness battle to start vs Mexico

Neymar barged his way into the World Cup limelight with a goal, an assist and another helping of histrionics as Brazil roared into the quarter-finals with a 2-0 victory over Mexico on Monday that inflicted a seventh straight last-16 exit on the central Americans. But Brazilian keeper Alisson, lifted it over the goal for his first save of the game.

But Neymar's sparkling performance was tarnished by yet another example of his tendency to overreact to seemingly innocuous challenges.

The Mexico defender appeared to stand on the Brazil star's ankle when he was already down on the sideline, causing him to roll around in agony.

Neymar writhed around and convulsed as if he had received an electric shock. Ultimately, I think that's what's important.

The world's most expensive player put Brazil in the lead after his back-heel released Willian, who then sent the ball into the penalty area.

"It's not a good example for soccer, and for the world of soccer, for all the kids playing".

Former England striker Alan Shearer on BBC One: "It was absolutely pathetic".

"There is no doubting the ability of him".

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

"I don't care much for criticism, or praise, because this can influence your attitude", he said. In four matches before this, they had never beaten Brazil; in the last six World Cups, this last-16 stage had proven to be their undoing.

"I want to congratulate the whole team". But what has been also very impressive is the way centre-back duo of Miranda and Thiago Silva have preformed in Russian Federation.

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

The opprobrium heaped on the 26-year old has prompted a counter-reaction from fans, who, with some justification, believe Neymar is more sinned against than sinner.

"Willian has been delivering attractive work", Sylvinho said. Mexico were on the ropes, but Casemiro spurned a great chance to stretch Brazil's lead, seeing his shot blocked by Ochoa.

The result was settled when Layun lost possession in the dying minutes.

The substitute Firmino added the clincher in the 88th minute on a carbon copy goal: this time it was Neymar who burst in on the left and Firmino who slid into the goalmouth to turn the ball home.

Against Mexico, it took some time for Brazil to find their rhythm, like it has been the team's usual pattern in the tournament.
