Brazil forward Neymar has defended himself against accusations he over-acted after a challenge during the 2-0 World Cup last-16 win over Mexico, saying: "I just feel the pain."
Neymar, 26, reacted strongly to an incident in which Mexcio's Miguel Layun seemed to stand on his ankle.
Mexico coach Juan Carlos Osorio said the Paris St-Germain player's "acting" is "not a good example for football".
But Neymar said: "It's complicated. It's not something I can control."
He added: "I got stepped on unfairly. I think it was off the ball, outside the game. I don't think it should be done.
"But that's the thing, they talked too much before the game - and now they're going home."
