Osorio promises Mexico will attack 'best in the world' Brazil

Replays showed that Layun did in fact step on Neymar's leg, but his exaggerated reaction after the foul was something to behold. Coutinho scored twice in the group and Neymar had a goal and an assist in the final two matches.

"He is one of the world's greatest players but when he rolls about on the floor, I just don't get it".

The only blemish for the five-time champions was the second-half booking for Casemiro, which rules him out of the quarter-final clash against either Belgium or Japan.

Mexico coach Juan Carlos Osorio, meanwhile, made only two changes to the side that suffered a 3-0 defeat to Sweden in their final match, giving 39-year-old Rafael Marquez his first start of this World Cup.

Neymar cut an isolated figure during Brazil's disjointed start, but he exploded into life after 25 minutes, racing past Edson Alvarez in the area and forcing Ochoa into a smart save with his left hand.

But the Paris Saint-Germain forward has steadily silenced his detractors, scoring Brazil's second goal in a laboured 2-0 win over Costa Rica before providing the corner for Thiago Silva's powerful header that capped a valuable 2-0 win over Serbia.

Mexico and Brazil kick off 2018 World Cup soccer games on Monday in the highest profile knockout stage game thus far.

Philippe Coutinho then fired over goal and Ochoa saved from Gabriel Jesus, whose follow-up effort was cleared away by Jesus Gallardo.

Five-time champions Brazil are touted as many people's favourites to claim a sixth crown in Russian Federation, and Osorio was fulsome in his praise of Tite's men in his pre-match media conference on Sunday.

He darted across the edge of the area before a ideal backheel released Willian, whose low cross fizzed into the danger area where Neymar slid in to turn the ball home.

Brazil endured a frustrating opening 45 minutes as they head into the halftime break with the score level at 0-0 against Mexico in their round of 16 tie.
