Neymar urged to stop acting, win titles to get Federation Internationale de Football Association award

Soccer Great Neymar Under Fire for 'Faking Injuries'

But Neymar's sparkling performance was overshadowed by another incident late in the second half as Mexico midfielder Miguel Layun appeared to step on his ankle.

Paris Saint-Germain star Neymar was often at the centre of things, as he scored and played a key role in Roberto Firmino getting the second.

As the match continued Neymar's "performance" intensified, with some calling him a "great footballer, even better actor".

"We need players like Neymar", said the former West Germany captain, who won the inaugural Federation Internationale de Football Association world player award in 1991. "How we use him is very important in a tournament like this, when we have very little time to recover between games".

"This is normal because he has many qualities".

"I think it's a shame for football", Mexico coach Juan Carlos Osorio lamented afterwards, saying Neymar's antics had wasted precious time.

"I don't care about criticism or praise, because that can influence your attitude".

A good period of attacking play resulted in the Selecao bagging the much-awaited goal in the 51st minute.

Both escaped punishment, but the judgment elsewhere was less forgiving, with Neymar asked after the match if he was a diva trying to draw fouls. "I don't want to go home yet".

He spent one season in England at Watford, scoring his only goal for the Hornets against Manchester United.

Two years earlier they had also gone out of the World Cup at the quarter-final stage, beaten by eventual runners-up Argentina. The team is aiming to win the golden trophy for the 6th time.

"I remember Colombia (against England on Tuesday) how they were acting", he said.

"Juventus have been champions for the last seven years, and only once without having the best defence", said Tite's assistant Sylvinho, the former Arsenal and Barcelona left-back, after the Mexico game.

Brazil football great Ronaldo has leapt to the defense of his compatriot Neymar, refuting claims the Selecao forward has been play-acting during the FIFA World Cup in Russian Federation.
