Brazil vs. Mexico: Highlights for World Cup Group A Game

Will Tidey@willtideySenior Manager, GlobalJune 17, 2014

Brazil and Mexico shared an entertaining 0-0 draw at the World Cup on Tuesday, with El Tri goalkeeper Guillermo 'Memo' Ochoa putting in one of the displays of the tournament so far in Fortaleza.

Once again, the Brazilian national anthem was emotional—so much so, that it brought Neymar to tears.

The first real chance of the match fell to Fred in the 11th minute, after great work from Chelsea midfielder Oscar down the left.

Fred was deemed onside, but he could only find the side-netting.

Soon after, Neymar came close with a header that was superbly saved by Ochoa in the Mexico goal.

Ochoa came to Mexico's rescue again, just before halftime, blocking Paulinho's close-range effort after the midfielder reacted fastest inside the box.

The two teams went into the break at 0-0.

It was Mexico who started the second half the brighter, moving the ball around and finding space inside Brazil's half.

This shot from Hector Herrera fizzed just over Julio Cesar's crossbar.

Then it was back to the Ochoa show again, as the inspired Mexico goalkeeper denied Neymar with yet another fine save in the 69th minute.

He was at it again in the dying minutes, producing this save to block Thiago Silva's header.

Mexico threatened to win it at the death, however, with Raul Jimenez's shot bringing a sharp save from Cesar.
