In the end, a fair result. Brazil did seem like scoring as well as Mexico but Ochoa is deservedly the Man of Match with a stunning display. A scrappy game with Brazil ending the match with (53%) possession and 13 fouls. 

Mexico had 13 chances at goal but no actual threat with most of the shots slightly off target and only 3 of those shots were threatened Julio Cesar's goal.

Brazil remains top of Group A with Mexico in 2nd. Cameroon and Croatia are the other teams in this group and take on one another on Thursday at midnight (SA time).
