Most importantly, though, Neymar has finally arrived in Russian Federation, while Messi, Ronaldo and so many major nations have already returned home.
With only two goals, Neymar is lagging well behind England star Harry Kane's tournament-leading tally of five goals.
"He was down and I touched him looking for the ball, I know all about his talents but I also know his tricks".
Playing at his fifth World Cup, Marquez came on as a second-half substitute during the wins over Germany and South Korea, but played no part against Sweden. And it was the right foot that helped to break through Mexico's stern resistance in Samara.
He darted across the edge of the area before a flawless backheel released Willian, whose low cross fizzed into the danger area where Neymar slid in to turn the ball home.
Brazil continued its run for redemption through the 2018 World Cup on Monday with a 2-0 win over Mexico to earn a spot in the quarterfinals. Neymar went on a counter-attack that drew Ochoa from his goal before finding Roberto Firmino with the finest of touches from the outside of his right boot.
Brazil awoke from their early slumber late in the opening half, but Neymar's angled drive was blocked by Guillermo Ochoa and striker Gabriel Jesus saw the 'keeper block his drive after a smart one-two.

As I said , if the President wants to meet with me, I'm ready to participate and advocate for North Dakota. Heidi Heitkamp for a spot on the Senate, flew with Trump and followed him out of the plane closely.
Only one of those previous games ended 0-0 and this one wouldn't either after Neymar scored the game's first goal in the 51st minute. It turned out to be pure histrionics. As Neymar lay on the ground with the ball trapped between his legs, Layun stepped on the Brazilian's ankle as he picked the ball up. But not before trying to step on Layun.
"We could have reached the first spot in the group stages so we could have avoided Brazil", Marquez lamented afterwards.
Following that, they lost to Germany (1998), United States (2002), Argentina (2006 and 2010), Netherlands (2014) and this time to Brazil.
Having made a slow start at the finals after recovering from a broken metatarsal, Neymar looked somewhere close to his best against Mexico - an assessment Tite endorsed.
This is a testament to Brazil's defence who are often subjected to accusations they are rarely tested and once they are they won't be able to cope. Brilliant from Neymar, beating two defenders and getting in a shot from a tight angle which the keeper does well to save off his line with his left hand.
"He's very agile. He's very fast", Brazil coach Tite said. "It's not a sin".
Reaction: Neymar scared by a ghost?
The rapid recovery seemed miraculous. "I think this is a real shame for football, especially for kids who are watching because this has to be a sport of virility, of determination, a man's sport, like other games, and not a charade".
