Well, even though they did’nt take the full 3 points, nor did Brazil and Mexico, more than showed how they had improved since the last world Cup.
It’s true to say that Brazil definitely created chances but Mexico had theirs also and could even have possibly stolen all 3 points if certain chances had gone their way.
Mexican goalkeeper Ochoa had an outstanding game pulling off world class saves on more than one occasion and with him being available on a free transfer, there are plenty of scouts that will be recommending him to their clubs.
As the game went on without goals the fans in the stadium were to play as big part as the players almost. At one stage Mexican fans sounded louder than Brazillian fans which seemed to help the Mexicans in their pursuit of victory. Perhaps the silence of the Brazilian fans could have been due to a bit of anxiousness and nervousness that they were not winning comfortably a match that many thought would be an easy win for Brazil.
All in all though, Brazil have 4 points after 2 games and a win or a draw in their final group match should see them qualify from their group easily and it is then that perhaps we’ll see the Brazilians move out of 3rd gear! Ouch!
