BRAZIL 2014: MEXICO DENIES BRAZIL THREE POINTS

  • Belgium comes from behind to beat Algeria

Brazil was denied a second win at their home World Cup by the brilliance of goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa who earned Mexico a deserved point.

Neymar was denied twice by Ochoa, who dived at full stretch to push away a header before blocking the number 10’s close-range shot.

The keeper also denied David Luiz and produced a great late stop to keep out Thiago Silva’s header.

Raul Jimenez forced a good save from Brazil’s Julio Cesar in stoppage time.

And goals from Marouane Fellaini and Dries Mertens saw a strong Belgium side overturn a 1-0 deficit against Algeria to secure victory at the World Cup.

The North African side took a shock lead when Sofiane Feghouli scored from the spot after being fouled by Tottenham defender Jan Vertonghen.

Manchester United’s Fellaini equalised with a looping header, shortly after coming on in the second half, reports the BBC.

And Mertens scored the winner when he finished off a swift counter-attack.
