On the other side Tite and his players will be watching Belgium take on Japan later today, with the winner advancing to face Neymar and company in the quarter-finals.
Brazil secure their place in the quarter-finals for the seventh World Cup in a row thanks to second-half goals from Neymar and Roberto Firmino. The Selecao upped the ante in the second half to put Mexico under durress, and their quality in the final third was the difference between the two sides.
Neymar was effective down the flank, while Willian also played his part in securing the victory. El Tri had early success, but ran out of ideas quickly as they failed to pose a threat in the second period.
