Mexico 0-0 Angola (fulltime)

Wow. What a performance by Angola. Not exactly beautiful play, but it was good enough today to get a point and keep them alive, mathematically speaking. João Ricardo was especially brilliant, with a spectacular save in the 43rd minute of the second half on a rifled shot from Rafa Marquez.

At the moment, the Mexicans lead Group D with four points and a +2 goal difference, followed by Portugal with three points and a +1, Angola with one point and -1, and finally Iran with zero points and a -2 goal difference. Of course, Portugal and Iran will probably change all this.

For now, Angola should savor this tie with the flavor of a victory.
