Mexico holds host Brazil to 0-0 draw at World Cup

Social Share

FORTALEZA, Brazil (AP) — Goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa made a series of outstanding saves to help Mexico hold Brazil to a 0-0 draw in the teams’ second group-stage match at the World Cup on Tuesday.
The result leaves both teams with four points each in Group A.
Ochoa just managed to keep Neymar from scoring in the 26th minute, with the Brazilian’s header set to fly just inside the post when Ochoa dived to his right to push the ball wide.
Ochoa also made three other difficult saves to keep the hosts from breaking the deadlock — a shot by Paulinho, a second-half effort by Neymar and a close-range header by Thiago Silva in the 86th minute which produced a remarkable block by the Mexico keeper.
