Robert Lewandowski showed his respect by giving Robert Lewandowski a post-game hug. Guillermo Ochoa did it again at the World Cup. 

Mexico's veteran goalkeeper, Jose Luis Rodriguez, stopped Lewandowski (one of the best forwards in the game) on a second-half penalty kick. This kept El Tri and Poland scoreless. 

Mexico's eighth consecutive trip to the World Cup knockout rounds would have been hampered by a loss in this match 

Ochoa (37 years old) is making his fifth consecutive appearance at soccer's largest tournament. He joins an elite club that also includes Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo, and others. 

It wasn't the first time that the seemingly old goalkeeper with unruly locks had made a splash at the World Cup.

In 2014, Memo, a player well-known for his nickname, saved six points in the scoreless draw against Brazil. Brazil was one of the favorites to host the tournament. 

On close-in headers, he denied Brazilian stars Thiago Silva and Neymar, and afterwards called it the "game to remember."
