They have conceded just four shots on target in four matches. Yet another tournament at which the Red Devils flattered to deceive.

But could this squad - featuring several Premier League winners - finally be about to deliver?

Miranda and Thiago Silva were again imperious at the back, while first-choice full-backs Marcelo and Danilo could be fit to return for a much tougher defensive test against Belgium on Friday.

I think it's a shame for football, he said, adding that Neymar's antics had wasted precious time. They caused problems for Brazil, too, initially.

The latest chapter in a bulging catalogue of histrionic behaviour came in the second half, when Mexico midfielder Miguel Layun appeared to step on his ankle as he lay prone. "You have to do something and find a way and boy did he do it".

Here's a look at some talking points from another wonderful day of action at the World Cup.

But Martinez would only concentrate on the positives after their remarkable win on Monday.

The win sparked an outpouring of joy on the streets of the capital, with disbelieving locals cheering, waving flags, blowing horns and yelling "Russ-i-a!" "It was about getting through, and we did that".

Koke and Iago Aspas then both failed in the shoot-out, marking a disappointing end to the midfielder's glorious Spain career. Spanish captain Sergio Ramos is comforted after their World Cup exit.

"What they are saying about the theatrical and pathetic performance of English players yesterday?"

"This is for everyone in Belgium".

However frustrated the 26 year-old may be at all the fouling, he's also now the butt of jokes across the football world, as the memes roll in. Most teams would have dropped their heads from being 2-0 down right after half-time, but Belgium kept probing and used the deficit as motivation to get back into the game.

As Brazil pressed their advantage, Neymar set up Firmino for another close-range finish that sealed the 2-0 victory. "Is this the sign of a champion, a comeback like that?"

Brazil has reached that stage at every World Cup since 1994.

Brazil and Belgium are ranked two and three in the Federation Internationale de Football Association rankings - behind only Germany.

Brazil's Neymar lies on the ground during the round of 16 match between Brazil and Mexico at the 2018 soccer World Cup in the Samara Arena, in Samara, Russia, Monday, July 2, 2018.

"That shows that we use aggressive marking to try and win the ball and then come out playing", he said. Paulinho has had a good season with FC Barcelona, where his ability to break into the box and score key goals was important, but that doesn't make him one of the great passers in the game.
