World Cup. Group A. Brazil and Mexico are through to the last 16

Brazil and Mexico will face Chile and Netherlands respectively after securing victories in their last group matches.


Brazil 4-1 Cameroon
The hosts showed their best performance against a struggling African team. Star man Neymar netted two goals on 17 and 34 minutes, Fred headed home four minutes after the restart and Fernandinho completed a rout six minutes from time. Joel Matip scored Cameroon’s only goal at the tournament. Neymar now leads the topscorers’ list with four successful strikes.


Mexico 3-1 Croatia

The Aztecs proved too hard a nut to crack for Croatia as they disarmed a powerful midfield in Luka Modric and Ivan Rakitic and went on to score three times in the last twenty minutes through Rafael Márquez, Andres Guardado and Javier Hernandez. Ivan Perisic managed to pull one back to deny Guillermo Ochoa’s third clean sheet on group stage. Mexico are set for a clash with mighty Holland in the last 16.
