"I think it is a disgrace for the game that you lose so much time for one single player.I don't think that is a good example for football or followers of football".

Neymar might be one of the best football players around but his talents on the pitch go beyond that and the 2018 World Cup has afforded football fans front row seats on what he is capable of on the biggest stage in football. "Our transitions were really quick", said Brazil coach Tite after their 2-0 defeat of Mexico on Monday night and he was half right.

For the second match running, Neymar has attracted the ire and ridicule of football supporters on social media for his reactions to tackles and physical intimidation by opposition players.

In the first match of the day, Brazil shut out Mexico 2-0 in Samara.

Cutting out the play-acting would also help Neymar win votes, 1990 World Cup victor Lothar Matthaeus said Wednesday.

Prior to that, Neymar spent 1 minute and 56 seconds "injured" against Serbia and endured 3 minutes and 40 seconds of similar suffering when they faced Switzerland. And it sits next to another, with Coutinho grimacing, with the words "But Belgium turns it around with a last minute victor".




Brazil superstar Neymar, who has scored twice so far to help set up a quarterfinal meeting with Belgium in Russian Federation, has been heavily criticised for a string of theatrical reactions when clashing with an opponent.

History shows that the team with the best defence tends to win the trophy.

"That now gives them the belief and it's a powerful thing to have".

"I think we've been in this position before many times over the last however many years". We'll find out on Sunday when the face Brazil in the quarter final.

Mexico has now lost in the round of 16 at every tournament over the same period of time, extending its wait for the "quinto partido" - or fifth game - for at least another four years. 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.
