Brazil vs. Mexico - Football Match Report

Neymar stars as Brazil beat Mexico to reach last eight

Osorio's men may have finished their group campaign with a 3-0 defeat to Sweden which cost them top spot, but their performances throughout, including a 2-1 defeat of South Korea, have been convincing and strikers Hirving Lozano and Javier Hernandez have shone. Brazil could play right into their hands.

The goal made Brazil the World Cup all-time scoring leader with 227 goals, surpassing Germany with 226. They have been functional and effective, and you can't really ask for much more than that. Brazil leads Mexico 1-0. And I'm hoping for a good game to boot.

Neymar scored one goal and played a key role in the second as Brazil edged out Mexico in Samara to reach the World Cup quarter-finals for a seventh consecutive time.

Brazil quickly looked for a second but Ochoa was keeping Mexico in the game, firstly keeping out a first-time strike from Paulinho from 12 yards before tipping a fizzing effort from Willian over the crossbar.

They should have won their first two games, and the third game could have been a little bit easier for them. In stoppage time, South Korea got goals from Kim Young-Gwon and Son Heung-Min to beat Germany , 2-0.

Brazilian soccer star Neymar and awful flops are a combination that we can always expect when his team hits the pitch - and he did not disappoint on Monday.

The talented Brazilians were by far the stronger team in the match, but Mexico had chances to make it more of a game.

Veteran defender Marquez was used off the bench earlier in the tournament in Russian Federation but started for Mexico today after appearances in 2002, 2006, 2010 and 2014. But he was clearly irate by what he perceived as play-acting from Mexico's opponents.

The breakthrough came shortly after half-time when Willian fired in a risky cross from the left after speeding past Ayala, with Neymar sliding in behind team-mate Gabriel Jesus to poke Brazil in front.
