These teams drew 0-0 in the group stage of the last World Cup, and Mexico qualified for the last 16 here at the expense of Germany, beating the holders 1-0 in Moscow in their opening game.

Neymar scored his sixth FIFA World Cup™ goal, before substitute Roberto Firmino added one late on, to lift Brazil past Mexico 2-0 to advance into the quarter-finals at Russian Federation 2018.

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.

Gareth Southgate plays down role as 'fashion icon'
I suggest backing England to keep fans dreaming by winning this one with both sides getting on the scoresheet. In spot-kicks awarded during games, he has saved only three out of 38 and one in his last 15.


World Cup - Follow the Football match between Brazil and Mexico live with Eurosport. The idea was to score quickly and then manage the rhythm of the game. The match starts at 16:00 on 2 July 2018.

Jesus went close again in the 33rd minute, finding space in a crowded area and drilling in a left-footed strike that Ochoa palmed away.

And their positive approach was rewarded in the 51st minute as Neymar and Willian combined to devastating effect. Neymar started the move by playing in Willian, who advanced into the penalty area before delivering a low cross to the back post where Neymar was able to slide in and convert from three yards. The last time these two met in a match, it was Brazil who registered a 2-0 victory over Mexico.

Kevin Durant to sign 1+1 deal with Warriors
Durant's decision is a win on multiple levels for the two-time defending National Basketball Association champion Warriors . But the Warriors seem confident that he can keep coaching for a long time, especially after signing him to this extension.


Substitute Miguel Layun was fortunate to escape punishment when he appeared to stand on Neymar's leg 20 minutes from time as the two clashed on the touchline, although the Brazil man's histrionics did not help his cause in convincing referee Gianluca Rocchi to brandish a card.

Brazil entered this World Cup as a favorite to win the whole thing, and despite worries over an injury to star Neymar, the team continued to improve game-to-game in group play, led by Philippe Coutinho's stellar performances. Neymar is through on goal, his shot is saved and it falls to Firmino to tap it into an empty net.

Lukaku misses training ahead of England clash
For Romelu Lukaku , joint top scorer so far in Russian Federation with Portugal's Cristiano Ronaldo , Henry is an inspiration. Manchester City star Kevin De Bruyne fed the ball into midfielder Thomas Meunier at the top of the box to begin the sequence.
