Kick-off: 4.00pm Local (8.00pm BST) Man of the Match: Guillermo Ochoa (Mexico) Assistant referees: Bahattin Duran (Turkey) Tarık Ongun (Turkey) Fourth official: Svein Oddvar Moen (Norway) Fifth official: Kim Haglund (Norway) Brazil and Mexico have now met three times in the FIFA World Cup group stage, all won by Brazil (1950: 4–0; 1954: 5–0; 1962: 2–0). A game that did not quite live up to expectations produced the second goalless score and draw of the finals. It came alive late in the second-half with both sides trying for a late goal with Guillermo Ochoa, who was also the man of the match, making a wonderful save from a Thiago Silva header on the 86th minute to secure the draw. Guillermo Ochoa was the hero for Mexico as the goalkeeper produced a string of saves to hold Brazil to a 0-0 draw in their second World Cup Group A game.
