Guillermo Ochoa

Francisco Guillermo Ochoa Magaña is a Mexican footballer who plays as a goalkeeper for Spanish club Málaga and the Mexico national team. He was Mexico’s starting goalkeeper in the 2014 FIFA World Cup, being chosen twice as man of the match, and the 2009 and 2015 editions of the CONCACAF Gold Cup, which Mexico won. Ochoa made his debut for América in 2004 in a league match against Monterrey. He won his first league title in 2005 and was the club’s first-choice goalkeeper up until 2011, making over 200 appearances for América.

On 17 June, in the second group stage match against hosts Brazil, Ochoa made four notable saves, including one following a powerful header from Neymar that helped secure a 0–0 draw, immediately drawing comparisons to Gordon Banks’ famed 1970 World Cup save against Pelé. Ochoa was named man of the match, earning praise from many, including Brazilian head coach Luiz Felipe Scolari.
