Natural disaster felt as Mexico football fans celebrate win over Germany

Marco Reus Germany 2018

Earlier, defending champions Germany crashed to defeat in their first game at the World Cup as an enterprising Mexico refused to be intimidated by history and ran out 1-0 winners in a thrilling Group F opener.

Hirving Lozano's first-half victor caused the shock of the World Cup so far as defending champions Germany were beaten in their opening game for only the second time in history.

Mexico's shock victory over Germany sent shockwaves through the World Cup but Hirving Lozano's winning goal might have actually triggered an natural disaster in Mexico City.

Juan Carlos Osorio's men could have doubled their lead in the 57th minute but poor decision making in the final third let them down.

Germany is bidding to become the first team to retain the World Cup title since Brazil in 1962.

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. Hirving Lozano's goal was enough to secure the 1-0 win for Mexico, despite the Germans dominating possession and fighting desperately to get back into the match.

"We will not suffer that fate", German coach Joachim Low said through a translator.

"In the first half we played very badly, we were not able to impose our usual way of playing, attacking and there were lots of counter attacks against us and we were very vulnerable".

"Mexico deserved to win and we made it too easy for them, even though we knew exactly how not to play against them".

"If seven or eight players are attacking then it is clear that our attacking power is greater", said Hummels. Due to injuries, we had to change some of our protagonists, but we always thought of having two fast players on the wing, " Osorio said.

With just five minutes gone, Carlos Vela played a perfectly-weighted pass for Lozano, who got in behind the defence and cut inside before getting a shot away that was blocked by Jerome Boateng. Marquez took to the field toward the end of Sunday's match against Germany, notching his fifth appearance in a World Cup. Mexico has lost six straight knockout matches. He responded by talking about remaining group games against South Korea and Sweden. But their recent form is far from World Cup-winning quality.
