But the 26-year-old's sparkling performance was tarnished by yet another example of his tendency to overreact to seemingly innocuous challenges.

Neymar writhed around and convulsed as if he had received an electric shock. The goal somewhat changed the momentum of the game as Brazil started playing attacking football and Mexico opted for counterattacks.

Twitter users weren't hesitant to express their disappointment in the Paris Saint-Germain player's "theatrics", with one user saying, "Neymar has already won a big award this tournament".

A Brazilian fan has trained her cat to repeat Neymar's signature on-pitch rolling performance, an act for which the striker has been widely criticized and caustically ridiculed on social media.

"There is no doubting the ability of him. He is a magnificent player", said Shearer.

"I don't care much for criticism, or praise, because this can influence your attitude", Neymar told TV Globo.

"Every team has lots of diving, lots of pretending, lots of putting pressure on the referee.the game loses quality.and for me that was the negative point". His replacement Felipe Luis usually is more solid defensively and gets forward well but has just come back from a broken leg, while, Fagner, who played on the right is no Alves.

But Ronaldo said Neymar "who is one of the most fouled players in the entire tournament - needed more protecting".

"Neymar was out for three-and-a-half months".

"It's very hard to come back the way he's done".

Neymar - the second highest-paid footballer in the world - scored the first goal against the Mexicans, giving the Brazilians the lead.

After releasing Willian with a back-heel, Neymar raced into the penalty area and slid to tap his teammate's return cross into the net.

"Willian has been delivering handsome work", Sylvinho said.

The result was settled when Layun lost possession in the dying minutes. Jan Vertonghen (69), Marouane Fellaini-Bakkioui (74) and Nacer Chadli (90+4) all scored goals after being down 0:2 to Japan, all five goals scored in the second half.

While his scoring is so often the focus, Neymar also creates goals for his teammates.

The incident was clearly meant to wind Neymar up, and Layun was lucky to escape punishment.

England's victory against Colombia takes Gareth Southgate's team into what looks like a winnable match against Sweden, who edged out Switzerland 1-0 earlier on Tuesday.
