Brazil face Mexico this afternoon in the fifth match of World Cup 2018 last 16.
The match, which will be shown live on ITV, comes from the Samara Arena in Russia, where the winners of Group E play the Group F runners-up.
As expected, Brazil topped their group, despite being held to a 1-1 draw by Switzerland in their opening encounter.
Defending champions Germany may have found themselves playing here in a repeat of the 2014 semi-final, but their shocking failure to qualify – finishing bottom of Group F in fact – left the door open for Mexico and group winners Sweden, who play Switzerland tomorrow.
Brazil will be hoping for smoother progress than four years ago, when they needed a penalty shootout to beat Chile, following a 1-1 draw in Belo Horizonte.
Mark Pougatch will be live on ITV and ITV HD from 2.30pm. Match commentary comes from Jon Championand Ally McCoist.
The match will also be streamed live via the ITV Hub.
