Being tipped as the main favorite to win this year’s World Cup in Russia, Brazil still not letting anyone down as they made their way into the quarter final of that tournament following a solid 2-0 win over Mexico.
Knowing how several top teams have crashed out of the tournament, Selecao were determined in keeping their World Cup campaign alive and well against El Tri.
Tite’s men didn’t have the best of start though as they were struggling to create any dangerous attacking move while Mexico looking menacing every time they go forward.
That situation happened until the first 30 minutes, but from that moment on, Brazil starting to find their groove and creating several dangerous chances, which they couldn’t convert.
After a goalless first 45 minutes, Brazil finally got the break through on 51 minutes, when a fine attacking moves were finished off by Neymar from close range.
That goal pretty much opened things up, especially for Selecao as Mexico pushing forward harder and leaving more space at the back.
After a very tense battles, Brazil finally secured all three points when Roberto Firmino netted home his team’s second, finishing an assist from Neymar two minutes before the final 90 minutes mark.
In the end it was a deserved victory for Selecao as they overcome a stern test from Mexico, which despite losing, did create many dangerous efforts, which they couldn’t finish.
