Brazil player ratings v Mexico: Chelsea midfielder ineffective

Brazilian Flag

Brazil were frustrated by Mexico in a 0-0 draw which saw Chelsea midfielder Oscar marked out of the game.

Julio César 7 - Made some really good stops when called upon, could’ve been hairy had he made a mistake.

Dani Alves 5 - Not his best game, got forward a lot but then failed to do anything once he was in position.

Thiago Silva 8 - Had a blinder at the back, made some excellent tackles and kept Brazil from receiving a scare.

David Luiz 6 - Played well at the back and spreading the ball out but occasionally lost the ball by dribbling too far out, causing gaps in the Brazil defence.

Marcelo 5 - Poor game for Marcelo, could’ve perhaps won it at the end but decided to try and dive instead.

Luiz Gustavo 7 - Played very well in front of the back four, vital interceptions and covered for the wandering Luiz.

Ramires 4 - Had a pretty dreadful game, never looked in it from the start. Showed he was behind with the game when he got his yellow card and was subsequently subbed at half-time.

Paulinho 4 - Was missing for most of the game, never showed any drive or passion in getting forward.

Fred 4 - Scuffed many opportunities and didn’t play very well at all.

Oscar 6 - Wasn’t able to get the same type of performance from his first game, got shut down quickly and soon became ineffective.

Neymar 6 - Played ok, and made some good dribbles but always tried one man too much and ended up losing the ball.

SUBS

Bernard 6 - Made an instant impact running down the wing and crossing in a fine ball but soon got shut out from the game.

Jo 6 - Provided some interested into the game, but it was too little too late.

Willian - N/A
