The final whistle sounds.

FULL TIME: It's ended goalless in the Estadio Castelao, but that doesn't tell half the story. A magnificent performance by El Tri goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa kept Brazil at bay and Mexico took the game to the hosts in a pulsating encounter. Neither side could break the deadlock though, and they both go into their final group games level on four points.

Match Facts

Fortaleza

Although it was officially founded as a village in 1726, and would only become the capital of Ceará in 1799, Fortaleza (Portuguese for ‘fortress') owes its name to the period between 1637 to 1654, when it was controlled by the Dutch, who built the Schoonenborch Fort.
