Thiago Silva denies rift with Brazil team-mate Neymar

With Germany having failing to advanced past the first round for the first time in 80 years, Brazil are now installed with many bookmakers as they favourite to win the World Cup. "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.

Although doctors said none of the injuries was serious, it wasn't immediately clear which player would be available for Monday's round-of-16 match against Mexico in Samara. "We're here to make history and it is in our hands". With emotions being high for both teams, we should be able to watch an incredible game of football.

Guardado is keen for Mexico to put their 3-0 defeat to Sweden in the final group game behind them as they bid to reach a first World Cup quarterfinal outside their own country.


Marcel had previously missed games for his club side Real Madrid from back injuries.

Brazil defender Thiago Silva has refuted claims of bad blood between himself and superstar teammate-Neymar. The match was originally scheduled to be played on FOX Sports 1. "However, I never said anything bad about Neymar - I made a joke and journalists have turned it into a negative".

The five-time World Cup winners head into the next round unbeaten following victories over Costa Rica and Serbia, while drawing with Switzerland who also advance to the last 16.
