The World Cup's highest-scoring team is about to meet arguably the tournament's best goalkeeper. If the free-scoring Netherlands want to progress to the quarterfinals in Brazil, they will have to do what only one man has done so far – beat Guillermo Ochoa. The 28-year-old Ochoa kept out Samuel Eto'o as Mexico beat Cameroon 1-0 and then had one of the performances of the tournament the last time he appeared in Fortaleza, denying Neymar twice with spectacular saves and Thiago Silva late in the 0-0 draw with Brazil.When the Brazil match ended, Mexico's players lined up to hug their man-of-the-match keeper. Mexico Midfielder Jose Juan Vazquez is suspended and will likely be replaced by Carlos Salcido, a former PSV Einhoven player.
