FORTALEZA, Brazil (AP) -- Fortaleza means "fortress" in Portuguese and Mexico's defense certainly lived up to the name of Brazil's northeast city on Tuesday thanks to the heroics of Mexico goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa.
A well-organized Mexico side held Brazil to a 0-0 draw in Group A as Ochoa stopped Brazil star Neymar and his teammates.
"It was the match of my life," the 28-year-old Ochoa said. "To do it in a World Cup, in front of all the fans, it's incredible."
However, Ochoa wasn't the only goalkeeper in form at Fortaleza. Just as the World Cup hosts were successfully stifled, Julio Cesar of Brazil kept his clean sheet with some impressive saves.
