Keeper Grealish brawled with is Mexico’s World Cup hero still playing aged 37

Manchester City's £100million man Jack Grealish was up to his usual tricks in the early hours of Thursday morning.

City had their first pre-season game of the summer as they took on Mexican giants Club America at the NRG Stadium in Houston, Texas. Kevin De Bruyne was already in top gear as his brilliance breezed the reigning champions through the tie.

Before the Belgian's strike, Grealish had been involved in a scuffle with the Club America keeper. And for those City fans with a keen eye, and the drive to be awake at 2am, the man between the sticks for the Mexican side was a familiar face.

Club America fielded none other than Guillermo Ochoa – the hero of the 2014 World Cup.

Ochoa shot to fame in Brazil for his heroics between the sticks of the Mexican national side – for three hot weeks, Ochoa was branded 'superhuman' and the 'best keeper on the planet'. In their home World Cup, Neymar, Hulk, and Fred were frustrated by the Mexican.

He even pulled off a stop that drew comparisons to Gordon Banks’ "save of the century" against Pele in 1970.

"Wait Ochoa does actually exist outside the World Cup," one fan added.

A second said: "Watching the City vs Club America friendly and Ochoa, mythical World Cup keeper, is in goal!" While a third tweeted: "Hopefully Ochoa doesn't have his World Cup type performance today."

And a fourth added, on De Bruyne's opening strike: "Smart money says Ochoa saves that shot 9/10 in a World Cup game."
