Brazil beats Mexico to reach quarter-finals

The 26-year-old has received judgement for some of his theatrics when being tackled during the World Cup.

"People are focusing on Neymar, but if it was only Neymar, I'd be happy, but it's not only Neymar", Mourinho said after England's win.

He added: "I got stepped on unfairly. This should be a game of men and not so much clowning around".

Among those to criticize Neymar in recent days are former England strikers Gary Lineker and Alan Shearer, Argentina legend Diego Maradona and Mexico coach Juan Carlos Osorio, reports Xinhua news agency. They have created their own story and made history.

Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi, who have dominated the game for the past decade, have gone home, their hopes of ever winning the World Cup probably over.
