Mexico coach Juan Carlos Osorio criticized Neymar - without mentioning his name - after the striker writhed in apparent agony after Miguel Layun stepped on an ankle, then quickly recovered as if no incident had occurred during the 2-0, round-of-16 win over El Tri.

Shearer is well -placed to comment, having copped 11 fouls in a match against Tunisia at the 1998 edition - a World Record.

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.

The world's most expensive player is edging back towards his best after missing the final three-and-a-half months of the club season due to injury as he scored his second goal of the tournament and set up Firmino's late tap-in.

After a decade of duopoly, the FIFA-run vote to crown football's best player finally seems open to third parties after Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo left the World Cup early.

Brazilians who watched Jordan Henderson go down clutching his forehead after being hit under the chin and Harry Maguire diving in the box want the same rigid criteria to be used as when judging Neymar.

"I think it's a shame for football", he told reporters.

Martin O'Neill has branded Brazil star Neymar as "pathetic" after his play acting again dominated the headlines after his sides comfortable 2-0 victory over Mexico today.

Twitter users weren't hesitant to express their disappointment in the Paris Saint-Germain player's "theatrics", with one user saying, "Neymar has already won a big award this tournament".

"I just have to play, help my teammates, help my team".

Former England defender Rio Ferdinand said Belgium will now take momentum into their last-eight tie with five-time world champions Brazil. "You have to win titles with your team". "We will need power", he said in a hint that the physical presence of Fellaini might be deployed from the beginning. The answers, delivered over a five-goal second half that saw the Europeans come back from two goals down to find an injury-time victor: Japan absolutely belonged, and Belgium has the stomach to fight back.
