    Dorival clearly not happy with Brazil's inability to put much together. There was a brief good period after the water break, but let's see if he gives this line-up a few more minutes after the half or if he brings in some of the starters to improve things.

    Brazil needs midfielders. There seems to be none at the moment.

    More Brazilian fans in attedance than I thought. OK First Half. Wasn't expecting them to play with intensity. Hope to avoid injuries (both sides).

    Second half has begun with no changes, though Endrick did warm up.

    Second half not too different overall from Mexico, but Brazil's pressure has been better. Martinelli scores after a good long ball, Yan Couto giving Martinelli a tap in.

    2x0

    Good stuff from Yan.

    Paqueta, Endrick and Pepe coming in.

    Nice dip and acceleration by Couto for the pass.

    The chant on the GK has started. Let's see if this becomes an issue.

    Paquetá for Andreas,
    Endrick for Evanilson,
    Pepê in for Martinelli

    Kind of a 4-4-2? Or Pepê being a left-winger but offering more connection.

    And now the announcement. They would be wise to stop. Their matches in Copa America will be an issue. This isn’t over yet.

    Another period of Mexican control of the match and not much going on for Brazil here. Need some more energy or someone fresh to hold on to the ball.

    Mexico reduces the difference, but it looks like an own goal by Yan Couto.

    Brazil give up a goal. Good recovery from us but gave the ball away on the transition and Mexico came right back, crossed and scored a tap in.

    Vini Jr and BG in for Savio and DL

    Hate to say this but Ederson hasn't been good at all. Expected more from him.

    Joao Gomes for Ederson is the last sub on our side.

    Wrong pass there. Should have given the ball to Vini Jr.

    I thought Ederson did fine for the most part. I'd bring him back. I think the biggest problem with the midfield was the space between them and the offense.
