How the internet responded to Mexico goalkeeper Ochoa
Written By

Mexico's choice of Guillermo Ochoa as goalkeeper for last night's World Cup game against Brazil was right on many levels. 

As he charged around his box defending each and every one of Brazil's efforts on goal (keeping the final score at 0-0), the internet was flooded with support for the star. It wasn't long before #Ochoa started trending on Twitter and the memes landed...

The Ochoa effect just about managed to over-shadow BBC pundit Thierry Henry's double denim look on social media. And after the cardie fandango, that's saying something.


Here, in glorious looping action, is one such save


Fans were coming up with ideas for some language changes


Then came the memes


Where's the foam, though?


Good point well made as Ochoa is compared to How I Met Your Mother's Josh Radnor


Ochoa's got this covered


He could probably defend more than one goal


Classic Lord of the Rings joke


Then things got a tad weird


Hopefully this happened
