A 'milestone' World Cup win kicks off celebration for Mexico

Joachim Low

Germany coach Joachim Loew admitted the reigning World Cup champions were made to pay for a poor first half as they slumped to a 1-0 defeat by Mexico on Sunday. "We are frustrated and disappointed".

"I am very satisfied, this is very important for the future of Mexican football.we will celebrate responsibly, recover well and plan for the next match", he said.

Defeat by Sweden could mean the earliest exit the four-time champions since the 1938 World Cup and 32-year-old Bayern Munich keeper Neuer was addressing a news conference that was delayed by nearly an hour because of ongoing team discussions.

He adds: "We are so polarized and against each other these days, with the elections and everything else going on, that this brings us back together and makes us feel like things are possible". "Our cover was often not good and we were left many times with just Jerome (Boateng) and myself in the back", said centre back Hummels, one of several Germans who will not want to watch a replay of Hirving Lozano's 35th-minute goal. "We are convinced we can do it".

Mexico will still have to maintain their focus and not get carried away in victory as they still have to see off Sweden and South Korea in their remaining group F games to assure them passage.

Brazil failed to win their opening game for the first time since 1978, but still haven't lost an opening match since 1930.

Federation Internationale de Football Association has opened disciplinary proceedings against Mexico after supporters allegedly shouted a homophobic slur during the World Cup match against Germany.

Germany had won their opening World Cup game at each of the previous seven editions, with their only prior loss in 18 appearances a 2-1 reverse against Algeria at the 1982 finals.

"Every player must ask himself, 'am I ready to give everything?", said Germany's shot-stopper.

Wiecking said that all World Cup champions seem to fall apart when defending their title. "It helps us to know we're capable and that when we work together, we can accomplish anything".
