Mexico drew Brazil 0-0 in a Group A upset at the World Cup.
The scoreline is misleading.
It could have realistically been 3-0 or 4-0 Brazil if it wasn’t for Memo Ochoa, the Mexican stopper who had the best individual performance from a goalkeeper at the World Cup so far.

His best save of the day — and the save of the tournament overall — came in the 25th minute. Neymar fired a curling header toward the corner on a cross from Dani Alves. Ochoa, who started at the center of the goal, dove to his right and just touched it past the bar.
