Mexico's Guillermo Ochoa Robs Brazil With Maybe The World Cup's Best Save (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Brazil may look like a top contender for the 2014 World Cup, but Mexico won't let them have it that easily.

Goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa made possibly the best save of the tournament when he stopped a Neymar header from slipping past him in a group game against the host country on Tuesday.

Let's lean in for a closer look.

Not yet convinced of its beauty? Goal-line technology, which is being used for the first time at this tournament, shows us how close the save was.

And that was just the first of several saves that Ochoa made throughout the game, which ended in a 0-0 draw for the underdogs. He later made this one against Brazil captain Thiago Silva in the second half.

Ochoa's incredible performance spawned a series of clever posts on Twitter.

The goalkeeper now finds himself going head to head with Costa Rica's Keylor Navas for best save at the tournament. The latter made this spectacular save against Uruguay's Diego Forlan on Saturday.
