Mexico held Brazil to scoreless draw - Brazil World Cup 2014
Brazil met on Tuesday Mexico for their second game of the world cup. After a rather difficult win over Croatia in June 12 (3-1), leading the score at the beginning of the game, Brazil was held to scoreless draw by a truly defensive Mexico (0-0), the result of which really echoes to the great surprise of online sports betting enthusiasts. Neymar and his teammates have squandered a big opportunity to consolidate their first place in Group A. The match ended with a 0-0 tie. Though Brazil played great till the end, their offense did not mean great thing facing amazing Mexican goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa. This AC Ajaccio goalkeeper actually held the whole Brazil supporters in Fortaleza breathless. Guillermo Ochoa literally performed a real show by saving Neymar (26th, 63rd, 69th), Paulinho (41th), Thiago Silva (86th) shots.
For their part, Mexican attackers have given some frights to Julio César. Mexico puts the pressure by 24 minutes of play, and continues till the end of the first period (43th) with a long-ranger curler that goes over the left post of Brazilian goalkeeper. Besides, Mexico fails to create a surprise late in 90 minutes +1 of play with Raul Jimenezs half-volleyed finish. Unfortunately Julio César was there to save it. At present the host team shares the first place in the group, tied game with Mexico (4 points- thanks to their win over Cameroun 1-0). Thus Brazil has to win their next game against Cameroun this Monday June 23, in Brasilia, to secure qualification for the final 8. For those who want to wager on it, odds are now available on sports betting sites.
