World Cup - Follow the Football match between Brazil and Mexico live with Eurosport. They have so, so, so many exciting players, but have thus far failed to find anything like top gear at the World Cup.

In their four previous World Cup matches with Mexico, Brazil have never conceded a goal against El Tri, outscoring them 11-0 in those encounters.

"PSG are very well represented at the World Cup and we have Neymar".

I'm going for a 2-1 Brazil win today. However, they will be up against a team with an embarrassment of riches, including Neymar, Philippe Coutinho, Thiago Silva and Gabriel Jesus.

In one of the most entertaining matches of the World Cup, Sweden swept aside Mexico 3-0 to put the Mexican hopes in jeopardy only to be reinvigorated after South Korea defeated Germany 2-0 to help them finish second of Group F on goal difference.

Mexico will miss key center-back Hector Moreno, who is suspended for the game after accumulating two yellow cards.

Brazil will line up as expected after the news that Marcelo would not start because of a spine injury, with Felipe Luis taking his place on the left. "It will be a hard game because Mexico have done very well in the first stage of the World Cup".

Germany finished bottom of Group E after opening the World Cup with a defeat to Mexico.

Mexico have won seven of their last 15 matches against Brazil stretching back to 1999, losing just five times.

The biggest concern is their defending-their last clean sheet came against North Korea in December, and they've played 10 matches since-and that should play into Belgium's hands.

A defeat would result in Mexico crashing out in the round of 16 for the 7th consecutive time.
