Mexico coach rips 'clown' Neymar for milking injury

Neymar looks through a tube at the camera in a training session

The goal also made Brazil the most prolific team in the history of the World Cup with 227 goals, surpassing Germany - who were knocked out in the first round for the first time since 1938 - with 226.

It began when he darted across the edge of the area before a ideal backheel released the excellent Willian, whose low cross fizzed into the danger area where Neymar slid in to turn the ball home for his second goal of the tournament.

Update: Neymar notches the first goal of the game at the 51 minute mark. Neymar went on a counter-attack that drew Ochoa from his goal before finding Roberto Firmino with the finest of touches from the outside of his right boot. It turned out to be pure histrionics. "Absolutely, but Layun steps on him".

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

Mexico coach Juan Carlos Osorio stressed that Mexico needs to export more players to Europe in order to compete with the likes of Brazil in World Cups and stated his future will be decided at a later date.

"I didn't see a Brazilian national team that imposed the quality it has", said Miguel Layun after the game. "How we use him is very important in a tournament like this, when we have very little time to recover between games". Check out some of the best reactions to Neymar's rolling antics below. "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".

Brazil could play right into their hands.

In the scorching conditions in Samara, the Mexicans, who started with 39-year-old Rafael Marquez, made a frenetic start but were unable to convert their chances.

But El Tri's error was losing that final group-stage game 3-0 against Sweden. A video review reversed the decision to award a penalty kick and Neymar's frustrations a few minutes later led to a yellow card.

Neymar broke the deadlock six minutes into the second half when he finished off a fine team move-that he himself started-from close range.

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".

With Germany, Argentina and Spain among the contenders already eliminated, Brazil's hopes of a sixth World Cup title have received an extra lift. "In the end, we are talking about them having the best players in the world, because they have Neymar, Gabriel Jesus, [Philippe] Coutinho and all of them, but in no moment did I have the feeling that Brazil were on top of us".
