Hulk had his chance after a pass by Neymar in the 55th, but his shot from close range struck the side of the net.

Mexico’s only significant chance in the first half came with a low cross shot by Hiram Mier that just missed the target in the 16th.

With the clock running down and Mexico pressing desperately for an equalizer, Neymar wriggled through two defenders near the touchline and crossed for Jo to score from five yards. Neymar was named man of the match by the second time in a row.
