‘Jesus’ Ochoa to Brazil: “thou shall not pass”

In a once-in-a-lifetime performance, Guillermo Ochoa, the Mexican keeper kept out all the missiles that the boots and heads of Brazil launched at the Mexican goal in a pulsating 0-0 draw. From Fortaleza’s Castelao Stadium he was elevated to the stratosphere of goalies, drawing comparison with legends Lev Yashin and Gordon Banks, who trended on twitter. Ochoa, released by Ajaccio following their relegation from French 1st division last month, stilled the samba beats making six incredible saves, earning him the epithet ‘Jesus of Mexico,’ including a bullet header from Neymar. In the crowd of 60,342 was NBA star Kobe Bryant, who tweeted “OCHOA!! Incredible.”
