UPDATE: As it turns out, both Brazil and Mexico end the day at the top of Group A (although Brazil has scored more goals) after the second tie in as many days at the World Cup.
While teams in Group H have yet to play their first World Cup match, Brazil and Mexico will each play their second match of the tournament when they face off today at 3 PM ET (7 PM UTC). On the line is a chance to claim first place overall in Group A – both Brazil and Mexico come into this match after wins over Croatia and Cameroon, respectively. Who will claim the lead in Group A when the 90 minutes are up?
