Mexico captain Andres Guardado has urged officials to keep a keen eye on Brazil forward Neymar "because he likes to exaggerate fouls".

"We all know Neymar. We're different players in terms of the mental aspect, but we know we'll be judged by whether we get through or not", he added.

"There's no greater memory than making history with a fifth match".

Brazil's team doctor Rodrigo Lasmar told reporters after the game that he was optimistic over the 30-year-old's chances of being fit for Brazil's round of 16 clash against Mexico on Monday.
