Brazil 0-0 Mexico – World Cup Group A – 17th June 2014


Mexico goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa produced an outstanding performance against Brazil on Tuesday as the hosts struggled against an impressive Mexican side.

Barcelona star Neymar had chances to win the game while Thiago Silva alos came close but on each occasion the hosts were thwarted by the superb Ochoa. However, Mexico also created chances to win the game with Andres Guardado amongst other, going close.

The hosts’ lack of a world class striker came back to haunt them against Mexico, with Fred lethargic and sub Jô not much better. Could this lack of a Ronaldo, Bebeto or Romario be their undoing?
