MOST COMMENTED

[BRAZIL 2014] Guillermo Ochoa had the best game by a goalkeeper at the World Cup with six saves, including two spectacular stops, as Mexico held host Brazil to a 0-0 tie in the Matchday 2 opener Tuesday afternoon in Fortaleza.

Ochoa's best stops were on Neymar with flying save in the first half to stop a header that replays showed was close to going in the goal. Late in the game, Thiago Silva got open for a header from five yards that Ochoa parried.
