"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".
Brazil winger Neymar is a world class footballer who does not need to exaggerate when his is fouled because it does not earn him any sympathy with the fans, former Germany captain and World Cup victor Lothar Matthaeus said today.
Neymar scored one goal and played a key role in the other as his side set up a quarter-final against Belgium, who beat Japan 3-2 later on Monday.
Osorio said the incident with Layun halted Mexico's momentum as they chased the game following Neymar's opening goal, and that referee Gianluca Rocchi "favoured Brazil". It is safe to say that Belgium coach Roberto Martinez grossly underestimated Japan's ability to cause problems, and was duly punished as they went 2-0 down within the first 5 minutes of the second half.
Merkel turns the screw on Bavarian rebels over migration
One possibility is for the 70-year-old CDU and CSU alliance to split which would rob Merkel of her parliamentary majority. Ahead of a hard Bavarian state election in October, the CSU is determined to show it is tough on migration.
Secondly, regardless of the number of extra rolls he takes for every nudge of a tackle, Neymar is still the most fouled player at World Cup 2018.
"It's a red card nowadays because they've spotted somebody stand on his foot, but the pain threshold of Neymar is just incredibly low I must admit".
Thiago Silva is preparing to face a "very strong" Belgium in the quarter-finals and knows Brazil can not become complacent amid their status as World Cup favourites.
"That shows that we use aggressive marking to try and win the ball and then come out playing", he said. "You have to win titles with your team".
Cavani Limps Off After Brilliant Brace
While Messi cut a forlorn figure during Argentina's 4-3 loss to France , Ronaldo tried to inspire. I don't have words to describe it.

"Mexico deserved to be in the last 16 and did a great game".
"Juventus have been champions for the last seven years, and only once without having the best defence", said Tite's assistant Sylvinho, the former Arsenal and Barcelona left-back, after the Mexico game. 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.
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.
Brazil cruises past Mexico into World Cup quarter-finals
