Earthquake Detected in Mexico City After Hirving Lozano's Goal vs. Germany

Germany

It must be remembered, though, that Germany beat Mexico 4-1 on the way to winning the Confederations Cup in Russian Federation past year.

Low went on to admit that his players looked "nervous" at times, but he maintains that he will not be scrapping his pre-tournament plans on the back of one result.

However, their attempt to create history got off the worst possible start as they feel to a shock opening game defeat to Mexico.

Mexico were relentless at the back, however, and broke downfield on many occasions without success.

But despite the loss - the first for a German team in a World Cup opener since 1982 - coach Joachim Low remains confident that his side will progress to the knockout stage in Russian Federation. "In the second half we knew full well that the reigning world champion, Germany, has an outstanding team". But during the 35th minute of the game, a attractive goal from Mexico's Hirving Lozano put the score at 1-0, Mexico. Our team certainly has experience in dealing with losses and it goes without saying that the next match will be decisive for us. They and millions back home have one wish, a demand really: for Mexico to play that "quinto partido", the fifth game of a World Cup. "We played with bravery when it was needed, and we also defended with all our hearts".

He said: "In the first half, we managed to play defensively with a great deal of intelligence and to hurt them on the counter".




It will be a stiff test for Mexico, who is looking to break the curse of six-straight tournaments in which it was unable to get out of the Round of 16. Not only were fans in tears, but players and coaches were as well. We had practised defending with four midfielders and three players up front and that is nearly how we got the second goal. "We need to see what caused this".

A second-half header from Steven Zuber cancelled out a sensational early goal from Philippe Coutinho as Switzerland and Brazil drew 1-1 in a tight Group E World Cup opener.

Mexico and Switzerland stir the pot at the World Cup.

Spectators watched the match on a big TV screen in the central Zocalo square and after the game, they converged around the iconic Angel of Independence monument waving Mexico flags.

Germany needs points from matches against Sweden on Saturday and South Korea on June 27 to avoid elimination.
