Guardado has subsequently urged the officials to keep an eye on Neymar in Samara on Monday. "For us, the thing is to know Mexico inside out so we can outline our expectations". "It's not up to me or us to judge, but the referees and Federation Internationale de Football Association".

Neymar "likes to exaggerate fouls", says Mexican defender Andres Guardado. "We're different players in terms of the mental aspect, but we know we'll be judged by whether we get through or not", he added.

Do you think Brazil have what it takes to win the World Cup?

"We'd never beaten Germany in a World Cup either, and we did it in this one", he said. "We're here to make history and it is in our hands".


Dr Lasmar said that as long as a serious injury didn't emerge, he would treat Marcelo's pain in order to prepare him for the Mexico game.

An opening game loss to Mexico (0-1) was followed by a dramatic late win against Sweden (2-1) but they were unable to continue the momentum as South Korea humbled Joachim Low's side 2-0 sealing their fate. This Mexican side is fantastic going forward but they have big issues in the defensive side of the game.

"It is a joke that I made, and the journalists talked about it badly".

Serbia can also still qualify for the knockout rounds despite losing late on to Switzerland in their last game and a draw against Brazil could see them through if Switzerland lose to Costa Rica by two or more goals.
