Mexico Beats Germany 1-0 In World Cup, Avenges News Outlet’s Insult

"I thought for sure Germany would beat Mexico because they won the last World Cup".

The moment of jubilation in Mexico City was the result of pent-up frustration after the country's club came close on a number of occasions prior to Lozano's goal.

"But today we deserved to win for what we showed, ran and gave".

Real Madrid midfielder Toni Kroos joined Hummels in demanding an improved performance when Germany take on South Korea on Wednesday in Kazan.

The German coach is in the crosshairs after sticking with a lackluster Mesut Ozil instead of speedy in-form winger Marco Reus, and setting his team up in such a way that allowed the Mexicans to launch countless counter-attacks. "We take this game very, very seriously". "It's great to start on the right foot when you are playing the world champions".

Germany will definitely try to defend their title but it will be a little tough to cope up with the hopes of the fans as several experienced players have retired since the last World Cup.

"It's disappointing to have lost the first match", he added.

"Cielito Lindo", punctuated by the familiar "ay-ay-ay-ay" singalong, graced the sound system during World Cup pregame frolicking here Sunday.

Germany, meanwhile, had 26 shots without causing Guillermo Ochoa too many problems, although the Mexico goalkeeper made nine saves in keeping a memorable clean sheet.

His calming influence was crucial, marshaling the space in front of Mexico's back four as wave after wave of German attacks descended on the area. Should Mexico be able to hold on and win the group, and assuming Brazil recovers from its surprising stumble of a draw against Switzerland, Mexico could escape to the knockout round with a much more favorable matchup, and potentially finally break through to the quarterfinals for the first time since 1986.

The experts all predicted that Germany would win Sunday's group-stage World Cup 2018 game with Mexico.

However, when they faced off with Mexico, things didn't go as planned for them.

Germany will need to bounce back when they face Sweden on Saturday and their World Cup winning manger has urged his players to quickly regain their focus.

"We had plans six months ago to have two quick players on the wings.We chose Hirving Lozano, our quickest player, and Miguel Layun, an offensive midfield player", Osorio said. It was only in the second half that the Germans upped the ante but it was too late by then as they had already lost control of the game.

The defending champions will most likely face the strongest opponent of Group F tonight.

"Our motto was play with the love of winning and not the fear of losing", Osorio said.

Serbia, which missed out on the 2014 World Cup, had the early advantage in a tough group in Russian Federation that includes five-time champion Brazil and Switzerland.
