Brazil have encouragingly made steady progress since their drab opening 1-1 draw with Switzerland where the Selecao were largely toothless in attack and disjointed all round.The goal was of even more significance for Neymar, who has been a somewhat divisive figure so far in Brazil's campaign.The former Barcelona player terrorized the Mexican defense and, after doubling his tally for the competition, he set up Brazil's second of the match with another probing run from the left.Despite Brazil's marked improvements, however, there remains some ongoing issues for the World Cup favorites.
