Neymar's sister injures herself while celebrating his goal for Brazil

So when the world's most expensive player did manage to find the net in Russia, Brazil went wild - and his sister dislocated her shoulder.

Sweden also compounded Germany's woes when they thrashed Mexico 3-0 in the other Group F game, which meant that they and Mexico progressed to the last 16. "For us, the thing is to know Mexico inside out so we can outline our expectations".

It's the first time since 1938 the European powerhouse have failed to advance to the second phase of the competition. We haven't known how to counteract those teams and the lesson we've learned is to change our style of play if we come up against another one.

"We'll do everything possible because we all know that statistics don't play when the game starts".

"We have to leave to one side everything we did wrong against Sweden and analyse everything positive we can to take into this game, which many of my teammates have said is the game of our lives", he said.

Brazil defender Thiago Silva has addressed reports suggesting that there is a rift between him and Saint-Germain superstar Neymar.

Speaking with Le Parisien, the PSG captain clarified that he was "joking" when he told Globo Esporte that he was "saddened" by his club and worldwide teammate's behaviour towards him.

"People talk a lot", he said. And I think, either he needs a little break - he might not even be completely fit, because he's always injured going into this tournament but his current standard and his current level, it might not be a bad idea to give him a bit of a break.

Neymar thought he had won Brazil a penalty in the 2-0 victory over Costa Rica last week, but the decision was overruled with the help of VAR, referee Bjorn Kuipers instead deeming it a dive.
