The World Cup Group C opener for El Tri and The White and Reds had a lot of drama at Stadium 974 in Doha, Qatar. Earlier in Group C action, Saudi Arabia upset Messi and Argentina, 2-1 in one of the biggest upsets in FIFA World Cup history.

Here's social media reaction to Mexico's 0-0 against Poland, earning both squads a point in a group that is now led by Saudi Arabia

Were these fans cheering El Tri or did somebody find a some Modelo Especial?

The stadium was a sea of green, giving a hometown feel for Mexican fans.

El Tri fans were anxious for the first whistle in the opening match for Mexico.

Alexis Vega's header in the 25th minute almost found the back of the net.

Scoreless for both teams at halftime.

Was this a penalty?

Guillermo 'Memo' Ochoa, in his fifth World Cup, denies Polish striker Robert Lewandowski from the spot, after a 55th minute penalty from Hector Moreno.

Ochoa, blocks more than just headers, shots and penalty kicks on goal. ESPN Mexico personality Alvaro Morales, forgives 'Memo' for blocking him on Twitter, but only if he stops the shot...

Surely households all over Mexico have dusted off their 'altar' to 'Saint' Memo, known for his brilliant saves in World Cups that keep El Tri alive in matches.
