#BRAMEX: Neymar hit back at critics, says he'll only get better

Neymar hit back at critics for trying to undermine him after more accusations of playacting in Brazil's win over Mexico.

The PSG forward, who scored in the 2-0 win which put Brazil through to the quarter-finals, appeared to have been trodden on by Mexico substitute Miguel Layun while he was lying on the floor. Neymar's apparent overreaction courted criticism and referee Gianluca Rocchi decided against consulting VAR, while after the game the Brazil talisman was bullish in his response to accusations about his theatrics.

He said: "Look, I think it's more of an attempt to undermine me than anything else. I don't care much for criticism, not even from the press because in a way this can influence athletes.. The last two matches I didn't talk to the press because there's so many people talking. I just want to play and I help my team-mates, I have to help my team and that's what I am here for, nothing else. I am here to win and I hope I can improve.. I am really happy for the match, not only individually but also for the whole team. I congratulate them on their efforts and we are improving all the time."
