By David Silverberg     Jun 17, 2014 in Sports
Soccer fans were treated to what is likely the best save of the World Cup...so far. Mexico's Guillermo Ochoa soared across the goal-line to save a spot-on header from Brazil's Neymar. Video of the stunning save is going viral.
Midway through the first half of today's Brazil-Mexico match in the group stage of the 2014 World Cup, Neymar was set up for a solid header that would've given the home squad the 1-0 lead. Unfortunately for Brazil, Ochoa made a spectacular save to rob Neymar of a goal.
Video of the goal replays the impressive athleticism: Ochoa leaps across the goal-line to slap away the ball just as it curls towards the inner post.
The game ended in a scoreless draw. Brazil notched 8 shots on goal, while Mexico only managed three on-target.
It´s the first time ever that Mexico has ever taken a point from Brazil.
