世界杯:巴西无法在与墨西哥比赛中闪耀

World Cup: Brazil fails to shine against Mexico

(CNN) -- Brazil's World Cup has been a carnival of color -- but this was a monochrome affair in Fortaleza.

CNN—巴西世界杯是狂欢的颜色,但是在福塔雷萨却是单色调的

A dour goalless draw against Mexico is unlikely to prevent the host nation from qualifying for the next stage but this game will soon be forgotten.

与墨西哥的一场平局无法让东道主顺利进入下一轮,但这场比赛很快就会被人遗忘

Even with Neymar at the helm, the face of Brazil's World Cup challenge, it rarely looked like finding a way past a determined and stubborn Mexican side.

尽管有内马尔掌控全局,但巴西还是无法找到办法攻破墨西哥的防线

And when Brazil did managed to create a chance, it found Mexico goal keeper Guillermo Ochoa in irrepressible form.

巴西真正创造出机会的时候,墨西哥门将Guillermo Ochoa的表现又是不可思议的

"There was a chance here, a chance there, it was very tight," Brazil coach Luiz Felipe Scolari told reporters.

巴西主教练斯科拉里说,"我们有非常好的机会,很接近进球"

"It wasn't a question of us evolving or not (from the last game). We've been playing this way for 20 games, we are up against good teams, we need to under stand that.

"这不是我们投不投入的问题,我们已经这样踢了二十多场比赛了,我们有实力对抗强队"

"It wasn't a good result, a victory would have qualified us. We need to respect other teams."

"这不是一个好结果,一场胜利会确保我们进入淘汰赛,我们需要尊敬其他球队"

After the thrilling excitement of the last week's 3-1 win over Croatia, those packed into the stadium in Fortaleza may have expected another action- packed affair.

在经历了上一场3:1击败克罗地亚之后,巴西之后在本场比赛中继续收获一场胜利

Mexico, winners in its opening game against Cameroon, showed little sign of being overawed by the occasion and came close to opening the scoring when Hector Herrera's effort was tipped away by Julio Cesar.

而在第一场比赛中击败喀麦隆的墨西哥则没有被巴西主场的局面所击溃,Hector Herrera的射门差点让他们获得领先,但被塞萨尔扑出

It wasn't until mid way through the first half that Brazil fashioned a real opportunity -- but when it came it needed a wonderful save by Ochoa to keep Mexico level.

直到上半场快结束前巴西才获得了真正的机会—但却被墨西哥门将Guillermo Ochoa出色的扑出

Dani Alves, sporting his freshly sprayed silver hairstyle, escaped down the right and his cross was headed towards goal by Neymar only for Ochoa to scramble across goal and tip the ball away.

Dani Alves的传中球找到了内马尔,他的头球被Guillermo Ochoa不可思议的扑出

With the first half drawing to a close, Brazil once again carved open the Mexican defense.

上半场结束前,巴西再次打开了墨西哥防线

A free kick into the penalty area was chested down by Thiago Silva into the path of David Luiz but his effort was blocked by the onrushing Ochoa.

任意球被禁区内的Thiago Silva停下并且传给了David Luiz,但他的射门被状态出色的Guillermo Ochoa扑出

What ever coach Luiz Felipe Scolari said at the interval appeared to galvanize the host nation for a few minutes at least with substitute Bernard, on in place of Ramires, adding a new found impetus.

无论中场休息斯科拉里说了什么,下半场替补Bernard的上场还是为巴西注入了活力

It was Bernard who created the opening chance of the half, crossing for Neymar at the far post only for the ball to be taken off the forward's toes by a Mexican defender.

Bernard的上场就为巴西创造了机会,可惜他传给内马尔的球被墨西哥后卫堵截

Instead, it was Mexico which looked the more threatening of the two teams with Oribe Peralta and Giovani Dos Santos both roaming menacingly towards the Brazilian goal.

相反却是墨西哥创造了更有威胁的机会,Oribe Peralta和Giovani Dos Santos都创造了机会威胁巴西球门

But while Neymar remained on the field, Brazil still possessed a man capable of producing magic.

但只要内马尔在场上,巴西就有创造机会的能力

It was the 22-year- old who was denied by Ochoa once again, this time the Mexican blocking Neymar's fierce drive from inside the penalty area.

这一次又是Guillermo Ochoa扑出了内马尔在禁区内的射门

Unbeaten in it s previous 38 matches on home soil, Brazil rarely looked like losing but nor did it appear able to find that elusive goal.

巴西主场保持了38场不败,巴西看起来不会输球,但也不像是能收获进球

That frustration was increased with five minutes remaining when Thiago Silva's powerful header was blocked on the line by Ochoa with the Brazilian captain looking certain to score.

这种沮丧情绪在终场前5分钟巴西队长Thiago Silva的头球再次被Guillermo Ochoa在门前扑出而变得更加强烈

Marcelo, the left- back, then embarrassed him self by attempting to gain a late penalty with a dive which won him few admirers.

随后巴西左后卫Marcelo在禁区内假摔想骗取点球,让他自己极为尴尬

Raul Jimenez went close at the other end, forcing Cesar into a smart save as both side's failed to find a breakthrough.

墨西哥的Raul Jimenez随后还迫使塞萨尔做出了扑救

Brazil's next game takes place on June 23r d against Cameroon while Mexico will take on Croatia.

巴西下场比赛将在23号面对喀麦隆,而墨西哥将面对克罗地亚
