Rock-solid Brazil living up to billing as World Cup favourites

Soccer Great Neymar Under Fire for 'Faking Injuries'

Neymar, 26, reacted strongly to an incident in which Mexcio's Miguel Layun seemed to stand on his ankle.

Shearer is well -placed to comment, having copped 11 fouls in a match against Tunisia at the 1998 edition - a World Record.

In the first 45 minutes against Mexico, Brazil again struggled to get the ball to their best players on a regular basis, due partly to a pragmatic midfield of Casemiro and Paulinho. "This is a very bad example for the world and the world of football".

Brazilians who watched Jordan Henderson go down clutching his forehead after being hit under the chin and Harry Maguire diving in the box want the same rigid criteria to be used as when judging Neymar.

Charley Hull turned in a 67 on Sunday at Kemper Lakes to finish in a tie for sixth, her third top 10 at the majors this season. Women's Open in 2011, has had top three results at all five women's majors. "I thought the tournament was gone", Jones said.

"I think the mentality of this team has been called into question", said Ferdinand.

Brazil coach Tite defended his player and insisted Layun "stepped on him".

Brazil's Willian and Gabriel Jesus were given special praise by coach Tite and assistant Sylvinho after the 2-0 victory over Mexico secured a quarterfinal place.

Neymar's unseemly habit of going down under even the tenderest of bodily contact has won him few fans at this World Cup.

England vs Sweden: everything you need to know
The tense penalty shootout at the climax of England knockout match was all too much for some, with heart rates reaching 145bpm. Now, Ireland may not have ever actually WON a World Cup , but we are fairly strong on our history.

Despite being left out of the Belgium squad after a poor Premier League season with Crystal Palace, Benteke saw the chance to poke fun at Brazil by using snaps of former Liverpool team-mate Philippe Coutinho.

"The KO in the last 16 is another dark chapter in our history", said Spanish sports daily Marca, adding that it was "incredible naivety" to think Lopetegui's abrupt sacking would not affect the team.

"We need players like Neymar", said the former West Germany captain, who won the inaugural Federation Internationale de Football Association world player award in 1991. Jan Vertonghen (69), Marouane Fellaini-Bakkioui (74) and Nacer Chadli (90+4) all scored goals after being down 0:2 to Japan, all five goals scored in the second half. I just have to play football, help my team, I came to win, not for something else.

Belgium made one of the best comebacks in the tournament so far this morning, coming from two goals down in the first fifty two minutes to beat Japan, three two.
