Replays showed that Layun did in fact step on Neymar's leg, but his exaggerated reaction after the foul was something to behold.

As Mexico threw bodies forward in search of a late leveller, Brazil took full advantage of the gaps in their backline to score a second with two minutes remaining. They join 2014 winners Germany, Argentina and European champions Portugal in being knocked out of a competition for which neither Italy nor the Netherlands - two of the great World Cup names - even qualified.

These teams drew 0-0 in the group stage of the last World Cup, and Mexico qualified for the last 16 here at the expense of Germany, beating the holders 1-0 in Moscow in their opening game. Neymar, who had earlier writhed around in apparent agony after Layun appeared to touch his ankle, burst through and prodded past Ochoa for Firmino to finish the game off - and Mexico with it.

Kane admits his confidence is 'sky high' ahead of Colombia
For England , Southgate's haunted look that night is all part of a wider narrative. I've always said we've had a chance but at the moment I can't see past Brazil.

It was another painful exit for Mexico, who have failed to play a fifth game at the World Cup since hosting in 1986.

A glaring spotlight had been on Neymar after his opening three performances saw him miss a litany of chances, frequently squander possession and spend far too long on the turf.

Philippe Coutinho then fired over goal and Ochoa saved from Gabriel Jesus, whose follow-up effort was cleared away by Jesus Gallardo.

Germany Have Been Knocked Out Of The 2018 World Cup
But a 2-0 defeat to South Korea in the third group game sealed their fate and sees them heading home early. After a "dark day" for German football, as Neuer put it, the future looks bright.

Mexico were much more aggressive in the first 15 minutes of the match, but Brazil were prepared for that.

But the Brazilians will be without Real Madrid midfielder Casemiro for the quarter-final in Kazan on Friday, against either Belgium or Japan, after he picked up a booking. The world's most expensive player put Brazil in the lead after his back-heel released Willian, who then sent the ball into the penalty area.

Our recommended way to watch the Mexico vs Brazil game online free is to try out the FuboTV 7-day free trial.
