After a sensational performance to deny Brazil, Mexico’s Guillermo Ochoa became the new World Cup darling of the internet.
The 28-year-old produced stunning save after stunning save to earn his country a 0-0 draw, and as is the norm these days following a spectacular showing, memes swept across cyber space at breakneck speed.
Ochoa, who is incredibly a free agent as of July 1, was mocked up as everyone from Superman to Lord of the Rings’ Gandalf.
