Layun questions Neymar antics

Javier Hernandez will search for cracks in the Samba Boys' reraguard

Mexico coach Juan Carlos Osorio lamented Neymar's theatrical antics when Layun appeared to stand on him on the sideline, and said Brazil's slowing tactics when it went ahead made it hard for El Tri.

Neymar mixed the brilliant with the absurd as he helped engineer Brazil's passage into the quarter-finals courtesy of a 2-0 victory over Mexico in their round of 16 clash.

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

At the 51st minute, Brazil would finally break the game open. 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.

But before setting up the second goal it looked like Neymar's game - or even his World Cup - could be over with 20 minutes to go. But not before trying to step on Layun.

With Germany already out of the running, the Brazilians have a good opportunity to leave Die Manschafft further in the rearview mirror as they head into a quarterfinal clash against the victor of Belgium and Japan.

LeBron in good dialogue with Cavaliers
Maybe that's an 8-seed. "He went through it this year a little bit with some of our young guys, especially in the playoffs". Depending on the player, he may answer more than one of those needs at once or at least soften the desperation.

Mexico took down one of those giants, stunning reigning champion Germany in its opener.

"I think it's a shame for football", Mexico coach Juan Carlos Osorio lamented afterwards, saying Neymar's antics had wasted precious time.

"He is wriggling around as if a crocodile has bitten him", BBC commentator Conor McNamara said.

TRT World's Jon Brain reports from Mexico's Tijuana with the latest developments on World Cup. Brazil could play right into their hands.

El Tri's Colombian coach criticized the referee for his control of the match, charging that he had been overprotective of Brazilian players by calling fouls on Mexican players for what he saw as innocuous challenges.

But Neymar's exaggerated reaction - the player dramatically writhed on the turf after Layun approached him - suggested a repeat of the play-acting that marred his play in the group phase.

Shock Germany win 'shook South Korea upside down'
The results on the afternoon in question saw Mexico lose to Sweden 0-3 and South Korea surprising Germany 2-0 . South Korea's win and Sweden turning over Mexico ended their dreams of retaining their title.

In his post match interview after the game the 26-year-old chose to aim a dig at Juan Carlos Osorio's team after they wrote messages on social media before kick-off, claiming that they had beaten Tite's side before, and they would do it again.

But he had the last laugh by beating an offside trap and sending a shot that was saved straight in the direction of Firmino, who tapped in from close range to settle matters.

Neymar, though, still led the celebrations, charging toward the corner flag.

With Germany, Argentina and Spain among the contenders already eliminated, Brazil's hopes of a sixth World Cup title have received an extra lift.

With the result, Brazil booked a place in the quarterfinals against either Belgium and Japan in the day's other last 16 game in Rostov Arena.
