Guillermo Ochoa became the MVP of the Mexico match against Brazil at the FIFA World Cup 2014. Now the goalkeeper will have to rely on his reflexes and quick thinking to remain goal-less in the very important game against Croatia. El Tri needs to end the game in a victory or a draw, with a victory being that much sweeter to enjoy. Ochoa was a machine, falling left, falling right, stopping balls with his abdomen as the world noticed no ball was going to get past him and ending up in a 0-0 draw with the host country. One German soccer fan that is in Brazil enjoying the World Cup live talked to a Mexican news outlet to talk about Memo's work on the field.
