Neymar's sister injures herself while celebrating his goal for Brazil

Neymar's sister injures herself while celebrating his goal for Brazil

I am expecting the big players like Neymar, Willian, and Gabriel Jesus to step up and impress for Brazil as the competition gets to the knockout stages.

Brazil's team doctor Rodrigo Lasmar told reporters after the game that he was optimistic over the 30-year-old's chances of being fit for Brazil's round of 16 clash against Mexico on Monday.

"Now they have VAR [Video Assistant Referees], they have to watch his style of play and the referee needs to be on top of it because we know he likes to exaggerate fouls, he likes to drop to the floor a lot". "We players are very well aware that being a favourite won't win you a game, that your jersey won't win you a game".

Guardado said that while Mexico have never beaten Brazil at the World Cup, "the statistics don't play", as was shown in Mexico's first match at the tournament against Germany.

"There's no greater memory than making history with a fifth match".

"Brazil are rated by many as the favourites to win the World Cup and add to their five titles, but Casemiro said that status will not be important for Tite's side. We aren't happy with the defeat, we had our hands on first place", stated Guardado.

Sweden also compounded Germany's woes when they thrashed Mexico 3-0 in the other Group F game, which meant that they and Mexico progressed to the last 16.

Neymar's Brazil take on Mexico in the World Cup's round of 16 having looked increasingly strong in the group stages of Russian Federation 2018.

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