RIO DE JANIERO, Brazil - Brazil and Mexico played to a scoreless tie in their second game at the World Cup, leaving both teams atop Group A with four points. Goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa made a series of outstanding saves to help Mexico earn the draw.

Also on Tuesday, Belgium opened its World Cup schedule by scoring a pair of second-half goals to beat Algeria 2-1. The Algerians led 1-0 in the 70th minute before allowing two goals during a 10-minute span.

Russia and South Korea played to a 1-1 draw in the World Cup opener for both teams. Alexander Kerzhakov scored the equalizer in the 74th minute, moments after coming off the bench.

Meanwhile, the United States team has injury issues following Monday's win over Ghana. Jozy Altidore was carried off on a stretcher after his left hamstring gave out in the 21st minute. He awaits tests that will determine whether he can return for this World Cup.

The U.S. Soccer Federation says captain Clint Dempsey should be able to play in Sunday's World Cup game against Portugal despite a broken nose.
