Goalie had stellar World Cup, shutting out Brazil

Spanish club Malaga has signed Mexico goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa to a three-year contract after his standout performance at the World Cup.

Ochoa's goalkeeping, including a string of stellar saves in a 0-0 draw with host Brazil, helped Mexico reach the round of 16 at this summer's World Cup.

The 29-year-old Ochoa played for French club AC Ajaccio for the past three seasons but was a free agent.

Ochoa says "this is a dream come true" to play in the Spanish league.

He will replace Willy Caballero, who left for Manchester City this off-season.
