Alexandre Soares, Brazil coach: It was a good result but the performance wasn't entirely convincing. We've got to be tighter at the back and quicker up front because Mexico are a tactically disciplined team. That said, they'll be tired from the Russia match and we'll be looking to capitalise on that.
