SLIDESHOW: Brazil and Mexico Soccer Match Ends in Scoreless Tie

“It was just the goalkeeper stopped us from winning,” Brazil coach Luiz Felipe Scolari told a news conference. “He made some spectacular saves.”

They played for more than 90 minutes, but in the end neither Brazil nor Mexico could score a goal.

In its second 2014 World Cup soccer Match, Brazil and Mexico tied 0-0 on Tuesday afternoon.

“It was just the goalkeeper stopped us from winning,” Brazil coach Luiz Felipe Scolari told a news conference. “He made some spectacular saves.”

The shocking tie, meant the celebration in downtown Framingham for the Brazilian community was less than it was for the opening match win over Croatia 3-1 last Thursday.

There were still cars driving downtown waiving Brazilian flags, and even one car with a Mexican flag; but a tie meant a subdued celebration, as Brazilians in Framingham were looking for and expected a win not a tie.

Brazil plays Cameroon on Monday, June 23 at 4 p.m.,  in its final game in the group round.

The top two teams in each group move on, with the winner of the group playing the runner-up of another group. 

The finals are slated for July 13.
