Mexico beats defending champ Germany at World Cup

Hirving Lozano stunned Germany as he broke the deadlock in Mexico's opening match in Russian Federation against Joachim Low's lacklustre side on Sunday afternoon.

"I think the group is quite easy, I think Germany is going to qualify... and I think again we're going to have Germany going through, and we're going to have Germany in the quarter-finals and probably in the semi-finals and probably in the final", Mourinho said, before adding: "But today they were really bad".

But it was too little, too late.

Mexico's seismic monitoring network, Simmsa, said the vibrations were picked up by at least two sensors when Lozano scored.

Even the Mexican subtitles got carried away with Hirving Lozano's GOOOOOOOOOLLLLLLLLL.

The reigning champions have endured a rocky build-up to Russian Federation 2018.

Their only victory in the run-up to Russian Federation 2018 came in unconvincing fashion against Saudi Arabia when media at home anxious whether or not the cup holders were undercooked ahead of the tournament. In addition, two members of the squad have come under the spotlight for being photographed alongside Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

According to German football journalist Raphael Honigstein, Germany manager Joachim Low contemplated dropping Ozil before the match.

Yet there were no audible signs of discontent from the sizable German contingent in the crowd.

"Our cover was often not good and we were left many times with just Jerome (Boateng) and myself in the back", said center back Hummels, one of several Germans who will not want to watch a replay of Hirving Lozano's 35th-minute goal.

Should Germany change their midfield?

Javier Hernandez triggered a lightning break before finding a charging Lozano, who cut inside a covering Ozil and lashed low inside Neuer's near post to spark deafening roars from the sizeable Mexico support.

The resulting corner caused panic in the Germany box, before a grateful Manuel Neuer pounced on the ball.

They were nearly punished in the last minute when second-half substitute Julian Brandt nearly stole a point for the European giants, but his thunderous volley shaved the left upright.

But any ideas that Germany would waltz to three points in Moscow were quickly quashed. But right now it is clear that Germany are there for the taking, and the World Cup might be too. That's why the first half was like it was and Mexico obviously deserved to win it.

Mexico coach Juan Carlos Osorio dedicated the win to the fans.

Lozano's nickname comes from the haunted doll Chucky in the "Child's Play" franchise of horror movies.

Osorio was certainly living up to his pre-tournament promise. "It's great to start on the right foot when you are playing the world champions".

Mexico have enjoyed a much better start than Germany.

"We aspire to win a World Cup this time", said Miguel Paez, a 31-year-old who donned a Mexican wrestling mask in the colors of the national flag as he celebrated on Mexico City's main avenue, Paseo de la Reforma.
