Cesar Heaps Praise On Ochoa

Brazil goalkeeper, Julio Cesar, was full of praise for Mexico shot-stopper, Guillermo Ochoa, after the two sides drew 0-0 in their Group A clash.
 
Ochoa pulled off a string of saves, including a stunning save in the first half to keep out Neymar's well placed header, and Cesar, who made a vital save for Brazil in the 90th minute, says the Mexicans played a great game.
 
"We knew it would be a tough game, it always is against Mexico, we didn't play our best game," said Cesar
 
"Ochoa made great saves, it was an open game. Congratulations to both teams, they played a great game.
 
Meanwhile, Selecao striker, Jo, who had a late header saved by Ochoa, admitted their poor finishing cost them the game.
 
"The draw is important, we wanted to win but this is the World Cup, there are 11 players in the other team too," said Jo
 
"They marked well, it was a very interesting game. Our finishing was poor, but we got one point. Now we have to qualify in Brasilia."
