Mexico needed keeper Guillermo Ochoa to come up big against Brazil in the 2014 World Cup to give his squad a chance to win. It looks like he got the memo.

Midway through the first half, it looked like a header by Neymar was going to be good enough to put the first goal on the board. Unfortunately for Brazil, Ochoa came up with a spectacular save to rob Neymar of a goal.

Just how close was Neymar to scoring?

Ochoa got there just in time.

Ochoa came up big one more time in the final minutes to keep the match scoreless:
