BRAZIL -- Tuesday’s World Cup game between Brazil and Mexico ended in a 0-0 tie. But if it wasn’t for the amazing saves of the Mexico goalie Guillermo Ochoa, the game would have had a very different ending.

Ochoa blocked multiple super close shots throughout the game, and as a result, he was trending after the game.

His saves left internet users saying, “let the memes begin!” Fans got creative, making memes of Ochia photoshopped into bizarre pictures and poses.

And someone hacked his Wikipedia page to add that he is “the Mexican Jesus” after his amazing game against Brazil.

 

The addition was removed by Wednesday morning, but it was epic while it lasted.

Team Mexico's next game is Monday at 1pm PST against Croatia. Prepare for more memes.
