Mexico Earns Big Draw Against Brazil

Mexico fought for a hard-earned scoreless draw with host nation Brazil at the World Cup on Tuesday. Goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa played a big role in the result by keeping a clean sheet with a number of spectacular saves against the power Brazil attack. The teams share the lead atop Group A having each played two matches. Elsewhere, Russia and South Korea played to a 1-1 draw in Group H action while Belgium rallied from a one-goal deficit to notch a 2-1 win over Algeria.

Action continues Wednesday as Cameroon and Croatia meet in Group A. Each team lost its opening match and will look to earn points and stay in the race. Group B teams will also play their second matches as the powerful squad from the Netherlands faces Australia's Socceroos. Defending champion Spain looks to bounce back from a thrashing at the hands of the Dutch when it meets Chile.

Portugal will head into Sunday's match against the United States shorthanded,
as defender Fabio Coentrao has been ruled out for the remainder of the World
Cup after suffering a thigh injury in the nation's loss to Germany on Monday.
Striker Hugo Almeida suffered a hamstring tear in the match while goalkeeper
Rui Patricio sustained a slight tear in his thigh, but both players are
expected to return to action before the close of the tournament. The
Americans, meanwhile, have not announced the status of starting forward Jozy
Altidore, who suffered a hamstring injury in the Stars and Stripes' 2-1
opening win over Ghana.

There are few things more inspiring in life than watching an octogenarain with two hip replacements swimming a 200 yard race, or guys in their late 70's playing some pretty vigorous 3 on 3 basketball. A generation of baby boomers is learning that, while they can't reverse age, they certainly can embrace life!
