Brazil moves on with 2-nil win over Mexico

Brazil marches on.

With Argentina, Spain and Portugal crashing out at the weekend, the South Americans beat Mexico by 2-nils to move on to the quarterfinals.

The tournament favourites came up against one of the most exciting teams of the group stages in Mexico.

Neymar got the first goal of the game on 51 minutes, sliding home Willian’s cross.

The PSG star was involved again in the dying minutes, as his cross allowed substitute Roberto Firmino to tap home.

It was more heartbreak for Mexico, who exit the competition at the last-16 stage for the seventh consecutive time.

Brazil will face either Belgium or Japan in the quarter-finals.
