Video|Mexico and Brazil play to riveting 0-0 draw

Guillermo Ochoa had the save of the tournament so far, denying Neymar's header.

FINAL SCORE: Brazil 0, Mexico 0

Ignore the scoreline if you want, as that was one of the best matches we've seen at this World Cup. Wide-open play, with both teams having numerous chances throughout the 90 minutes. Moreover, both keepers needed to come up big in order to keep it scoreless.

It started with Brazil having the upper hand, controlling possession and constantly pressuring Mexico. They were dispossessing the Mexican midfielders in bad spots and countering easily -- but Mexico goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa kept them at bay. Mexico would settle down, though, and start to create their own chances. The first half was filled with hard challenges and dangerous tackles, although the referee decided not to book anyone.
