After a thrilling start to the World Cup, yesterday's action saw a much slower offensive pace, including a 2-1 Belgium win over Algeria and draws between Brazil-Mexico and Russia-South Korea. Of course, the biggest match of the day was the scoreless showdown between Brazil and Mexico, where Mexico's goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa kept Brazil silent with a number of incredible saves. After the 0-0 finish, both teams are also tied in World Cup standings with 4 points apiece and will likely advance through Group A.

Take a look at all of the day's best boots and performances after the break, and keep it locked here for ongoing World Cup coverage.
