Brazil vs. Mexico

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. For Brazil, midfielder Willian comes in for Oscar.

Official Man of the Match: Guillermo Ochoa (MEX)

My MOTM: Guillermo Ochoa




  1. Mexico’s goalkeeper was outstanding but I still believe that Brazil have not been impressive so far at the World Cup. Both Mexico and Croatia had several chances against Brazil. The Brazilian defence will need to improve in the knock-out stages.
