Ochoa performed brilliantly at Luzhniki Stadium when Mexico started their work in the 2018 World Cup by defeating the defending German champions. He kept his goalkeeper until the end of the game, in the midst of the invasion of the German players.
According to Squawka, Ochoa managed to make nine rescues in this fight. That number made him the goalkeeper with the most salvage in one World Cup match throughout history.
Throughout the game Germany is actually able to remove 25 shots. But the success of Ochoa doing nine rescues helped make the front barren until the end of the game.
One of the most brilliant rescues took place at the end of the first half. Toni Kroos can chance through a free kick, bend the ball into the top left corner of the Mexican goalkeeper, to be pushed over perfectly with Ochoa.
Interesting to be explored that Ochoa also had a similar action in the 2014 World Cup ago. 32-year-old Standard Liege goalkeeper also spayed the Brazil forward line which (then) is strengthened by Neymar, Fred, and Oscar.
In a match at Fortaleza on June 17, 2014, Ochoa made a total of six rescues to help Mexico play a 0-0 draw against Brazil who was then acting host.
ESPN called Ochoa a second goalkeeper after Jan Tomaszewski was able to make a cleansheet against Brazil and Germany in the World Cup. Tomaszewski had previously managed to do that in the 1974 and 1978 World Cups.
