Mexico’s man between the sticks became the savior for could have been an annihilation on Mexico by Brazil. “Memo” denied several attempts by the Brazilians including some close range shots, saves that left the world in awe. The brave Mexican squad put up a fight against their newly named “archrivals”, Brazil.
The game moved from left to right with each team getting a nice amount of chances. Neither side could convert. Neymar was prevented from slaughtering the Mexican defense, like he did one year ago. Each squad had a fair amount of support from their fans, but Brazil obviously had the home advantage.
This match will remain the most exciting match of the tournament so far, and will always remain as one of the best performances by a goalie in a Mexico jersey.
