Brazil through to the quarter-finals

Brazil through to the quarter-finals

But Ronaldo - who is one place and five goals ahead of Neymar in the list of Brazil's all-time top goalscorers - said: "There are many ways to see football and interpret it".

Japan as the last remaining Asian team in the tournament opened the score sheets early in the forty eighth minute through Genki Haraguchi, and scored again the fifty second minute through Takashi Inui.

As the match continued Neymar's "performance" intensified, with some calling him a "great footballer, even better actor".

After his team beat Austria 3-0 in a warm-up friendly, Tite lauded his players for only conceding eight free-kicks.

"I think that we adapted to necessity, maybe, rather than having a clear idea", Sampaoli told the Independent.

"I don't care much for criticism, or praise, because this can influence your attitude", he pointed out.

However, according to das Bild, Seehofer called the meeting on Saturday evening an "ineffective conversation". If that country does not have an arrangement with Germany, Austria has agreed to take them back.

Juan Carlos Osorio questions Neymar's playacting in Brazil's 2-0 win over Mexico, which he believes sets "a very bad example".

"(Diego) Maradona wasn't acting, (Lionel) Messi doesn't act. "He is a magnificent player", said Shearer. The game was largely uneventful until Neymar sparked into life in the 25th minute to turn Mexican defender Edson Alvarez inside out and dispatch a shot.

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

Brazilian football star Neymar has been subject to a lot of criticism during the World Cup.

"But my God, Neymar was even given the man of the match by Federation Internationale de Football Association, but we need to have Federation Internationale de Football Association looking at this, the way he behaved in this game, I can't find any other way [of describing it] than disgraceful".

Five-time champions Brazil are widely tipped as favourites to win a sixth crown and Benteke is already cranking up the pressure on Neymar and his team. England beat Colombia 4-3 on penalties in a bad-tempered game that was nearly constantly interrupted with referee Mark Geiger booking six Colombians and two English players.
