Tite has called in Filipe Luis to replace Marcelo for Brazil's World Cup round of 16 game against Mexico.

Mexico were the dominant force in the opening 20 minutes in Samara, but they were unable to make their superiority count and eventually allowed their muted opponents to scrap their way into the game.

"It is a shame for football, we wasted a lot of time because of one player", said Osorio.

"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".

Mexico's poor run started from 1994, where they lost to Bulgaria 3-1 via penalties.

Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo are no longer part of the FIFAWorld Cup 2018, but Neymar has been flying high so far in the tournament.

Update: Neymar notches the first goal of the game at the 51 minute mark.

Roberto Firmino added the second in an 88th-minute counter-attack when Guillermo Ochoa could only direct Neymar's shot into his path.

Israel seized much of the Golan from Syria in the 1967 war and annexed the strategic plateau, a move not recognized overseas . It would also allow the reopening of the Naseeb border crossing with Jordan and the resumption of trade across the frontier.


Until that moment, it had looked like his would be a story of good Neymar-of what he brings to the game that is positive.

The Mexico full-back appeared to press his studs against Neymar's ankle as he retrieved the ball from between the Brazilian's legs.

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 was the architect, crossing for Firmino, who is becoming something of a "supersub" for Brazil, to tap the ball home.

The match had been billed as a duel between Neymar and Javier Hernandez, but the West Ham striker was more noticeable for his platinum-dyed blond hair, a choice also made by central defender Carlos Salcedo, before being replaced in the second half.

The Mexicans, eliminated at this stage in the last six tournaments, made most of the early running but too often over-elaborated and struggled to test Brazil goalkeeper Alisson.

Belgium or Japan, who lock horns at 7pm this evening, await them in that last-eight clash in Kazan on Friday night.

Belgium and Japan face off later in the day, with the victor facing Brazil on Friday. Alongside those rapid sorties came more considered touches and the back-heel with which he released Willian before the opening goal, a constructive move rather than an extravagance, was indicative of a player thinking about consequences rather than simply revelling in actions.
