A clerk in the store described the match as charged with excitement.

It was a very interesting game, in which the Mexicans played on a par with the Brazilians, a woman, Matilde, said.

Thanks to the goalkeeper (Guillermo Ochoa), Mexico fended off several goals. I felt really nervous whenever Brazil neared Mexico's goalpost and really excited whenever the Mexicans neared Brazil's, taxi driver Ernesto said.

Mexico played an excellent game. I actually believed the national team was going to lose. This tie is in reality a victory, because Brazil continues to be one of the favorites to win this championship, said Federico, a security guard at a private company.

Sports commentators on major TV stations and news media also praised the team's goalkeeper, saying Ochoa's performance was sensational and dubbing him Saint Ochoa.
