Neymar inspires Brazil win

19 June 2013 10:47

Neymar all but fired Brazil to the semi-finals of the Confederations Cup as they beat Mexico 2-0 in the Group A clash at Estadio Castelao.

Brazil won their opening match against Japan and their latest victory means they are in pole position to progress to the next stage, while in contrast, Mexico's cup ambitions look to be over after they also lost their opening game to Italy.

It was two pieces of fantastic skill by Neymar at the start and the end of the game which proved to be the ultimate difference. The 21-year-old fired Brazil into the lead within nine minutes when he picked up the ball in the edge of the box and volleyed home a stunning strike before his jinking run up the left and deft footwork set-up Jo in stoppage time for the second.
