My predicted outcome: Brazil 3-1 Mexico
Real outcome: Brazil 0-0 Mexico
I just want to say wow. Impressive. A scoreless game between Brazil and Mexico. But I guess when you look at it, it makes sense. A lot of sense. Two evenly matched teams on the pitch together, both with amazing keepers
Overview: Nothing happened until 45′, when Brazilian midfielder, number 16, Ramires, received a yellow card for fouling Aguilar. Then comes halftime. 1 minute after halftime, 46 minutes, previously booked midfielder, Ramires, comes out for forward/midfielder, Bernard. At 59′ Mexican defender Paul Aguilar gets a yellow card. 3 minutes later, at 62′, Mexico’s midfielder, Jose Juan Vazquez, is given the yellow for a foul on Neymar. Then, at 68′, Brazil takes out forward, Fred, and brings in Atletico Mineiro’s Jo. At 74′ minutes, Mexico takes out forward Oribe Peralta, and brings in 26-year-old, Javier Hernandez, also known as Chicharito. 2 minutes later, the Mexican side swaps Hector Herrera for midfielder Marco Fabian. At 79′, Brazil’s captain, Thiago Silva, receives a yellow card for a foul committed on Hernandez. At 84′ both sides make a swap. For Mexico, forward Raul Jimenez comes in for Giovani Dos Santos.
