In perhaps the best save of the World Cup so far, Mexico keeper Guillermo Ochoa somehow deflected Brazil superstar Neymar's header wide in the first half of Tuesday's match between Brazil and Mexico.

From those angles it looks like the ball maaaaaaaaaybe crossed the goal line, but nope. Here's proof.

Probably best to describe this one as agonozingly close.

On the other hand, Ochoa puts himself in the running for best save of the tournament, joining Costa Rica's Keylor Navas, who made this gem against Uruguay.

A lot of tournament to play, sure. But it's unlikely we see two better saves.
