"There's no greater memory than making history with a fifth match", said Mexico captain Andres Guardado.

In fact, CONCACAF teams have a awful record when facing Brazil, losing 10 of 11 unbeaten matches as the Selecao covered the -1 handicap on eight occasions and completed nine Win/Win doubles.

Brazil will be without left-back Marcelo due to a back problem, so Filipe Luís will take his place against a Mexico side not to be taken lightly. With a pair of 2-0 wins over Costa Rica and Serbia, Brazil easily clinched its place at the top of its group.

Likewise, at the 2007 Copa America Mexico handed Dunga his first defeat as Brazil coach. As a result, Mexico wound up in second and now has the tough task of eliminating one of the favorites to win this tournament.

Mexico may have produced some fine performances down the years but when it comes to the crunch games they often fail to deliver, as evidenced by their abysmal recent record in the World Cup knockout stages.

They've fallen at the Round of 16 stage at six successive World Cup tournaments, but if they make it through to the Quarter Finals this time, they'll surely be one of the favourites to win the entire competition.
