Brazil vs. Mexico - Football Match Report

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.

The team looked in good form today and it was Brazil's Paris-based superstar and most famous player Neymar who scored the first goal while Roberto Firmino only had to tap the ball into the back of the net to secure victory.

Mexican soccer fans react after the soccer match, Zocalo Square, Mexico City, Mexico July 2, 2018.

'We lost our style due to the referee giving too much stoppage time. Brazil leads Mexico 1-0. A day after Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo exited the World Cup early, this was Neymar's platform to mark himself as the competition's preeminent star and with plenty of help from his teammates, he made a persuasive claim. Philippe Coutinho was floating around the midfield, finding space and passes easily, Neymar's trickery on the left started causing problems for Mexico, Gabriel Jesus was getting into good positions and on the right, Willian, the most improved player since the first game, became a headache for their opponents.

He also said that "for a generation of Mexican players, this was the last opportunity to reach a World Cup quarter-final in their prime".

Neymar's dispute with Layun unfolded as the Mexico substitute tried to recover the ball. They caused problems for Brazil, too, initially. We wasted a lot of time because of one player.

Juan Carlos Osorio named Rafa Marquez, 39, as captain to make it five World Cups the veteran defender had skippered his country, but he was removed for Miguel Layun at half-time, with Brazil ending the first half on top.

Reaction: Neymar scared by a ghost?

"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".

Neymar Key As Brazil Aim To Overcome Mexico Test
Brazil will be favorites to advance, but Mexico have already shocked the world once this tournament and should not be counted out. Felipe Luis is expected to start in place of Marcelo after Marcelo was forced off against Serbia because of a back spasm.

With Brazil squeezing Mexico, the PSG striker made the breakthrough in the 50th minute, exchanging an elongated one-two with Willian before latching onto a low cross to slide home from close range...

There is nothing wrong with having a player of Firmino's quality on the bench, and if he can come late in games to tire and already flagging opposition defence, then it's an ideal scenario.

Neymar, though, still led the celebrations, charging toward the corner flag.

"Us attackers have to score the goals because we know that we are very strong at the back".
