Brazil overtakes Germany as top scoring team in World Cup history

The goal made Brazil the World Cup all-time scoring leader with 227 goals, surpassing Germany with 226.

That should not overshadow his generally positive display however, as the five-times champions beat an otherwise stubborn Mexico, whose World Cup began with such promise with a victory over champions Germany, but ended in familiar fashion in the first knockout round.

Second-half goals from Neymar and Roberto Firmino have earned Brazil a 2-0 victory over Mexico in Monday's World Cup last-16 tie in Samara.

El Tri hasn't made it past the Round of 16 since 1986 and has never won a World Cup elimination game outside Mexico.

Mexico's World Cup run has come to an end. Hirving Lozano went close inside the opening two minutes as his shot was blocked after Alisson failed to deal with a cross from the left.

If he does, we should see more of the slick attacking play we expect from Brazil along the way. Having scored the opener after sliding on to Willian's mis-hit cross, Neymar's toe-poked effort could have doubled their lead in the closing minutes.

Gareth Southgate defends resting England players for 'biggest game for a decade'
We are in this stadium, which has been built for four games, no cutting corners or looking for a second-level job. Belgium manager Roberto Martinez also left out his stars, including Romelu Lukaku and Eden Hazard.

Belgium and Japan face off later in the day, with the victor facing Brazil on Friday.

Neymar can lead Brazil to glory here in Russian Federation, but to maximise the Selecao's chances he needs to link up with his team-mates in that fashion.

Marcelo had back spasms in the opening minute of Brazil's last group match against Serbia and didn't recover in time to return to the starting lineup.

It was the PSG forward's second goal of the 2018 tournament after his late goal against Costa Rica in the group stage, as he looks to overcome the disappointment of leaving the tournament early with injury in 2014.

After Mexican goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa had been called into action to deny Gabriel Jesus and Philippe Coutinho, Neymar finally made the breakthrough at the back post - netting his second goal of the tournament shortly after half-time, when Willian's scuffed cross found its way through to him.
