KATHMANDU — Brazil advance to their seventh consecutive World Cup Quarter Final after a 2-0 victory over Mexico on Monday. Neymar scored one goal playing a key role in the second half as Brazil edged out Mexico in Samara to reach the World Cup quarter-finals.
Brazil have reached the quarter-finals of every World Cup since 1994. And, Mexico have been in the last 16 every time since then, but never the last eight.
Brazil did not have it all their own way, especially in an opening period dominated by Mexico, but the five-time winners grew into what became a controlled performance.
Second half goals from Neymar and Roberto Firmino gave Brazil its victory. In the first half Mexico started the game well but couldn’t create any real chances, Brazil grew into the game, however, and had the best chances of the first half as they forced a couple of saves from Guillermo Ochoa.
Brazil is now going through to the quarterfinals to face Belgium, while Mexico leaves the tournament at the Round of 16 stage for the seventh consecutive time.Follow @gorkhapost
