World Cup elimination leaves Mexico fans heart-broken
History repeated itself in Samara on Monday as Mexico were eliminated from the World Cup in the round of 16 - as they have been at every World Cup since 1994. Five-time champions Brazil eased into the quarter-final with a 2-0 victory through goals from Neymar and Roberto Firmino. There was disappointment among fans in Mexico City as yet another opportunity was missed to progress beyond four games in the tournament. Mexico started well with a 1-0 win over Germany, then beat South Korea 2-1, before a 3-0 defeat to Sweden set up the knockout tie with Brazil, a team they have now failed to score against in five World Cup meetings.
