Germany 0 Mexico 1: Lozano stuns woeful reigning champion

1:25                                            Joshua Kimmich knows Mexico have the quality to hurt Germany after facing them in last year's Confederations Cup

Try as they might, the rest of the game Germany was unable to score.

But, fans have high hopes as they faced the similar thing in the last World Cup in 2014 where they defeated Portugal by 4-0 in the opening match. There can be obstacles to overcome and in the next match we must be much better.

Germany's forward Thomas Mueller shoots the ball beside Mexico's defender Jesus Gallardo on June 17, 2018. "Our team has experience of dealing with losses, the next match will be decisive and we have to win it".

Germany pressed in the second half but struggled to find the target.

The last three European winners of the World Cup before Germany - France, Italy and Spain - have all exited at the group stage during their title defence.

Mexico supporters outnumbered Germany fans at the Luzhniki Stadium and made nearly all of the noise, roaring their team forward.

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.

When Mexico were drawn alongside Germany, Sweden and South Korea in their World Cup group, the country's football fans would have been forgiven for letting out a sigh of consternation. 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.

"Our motto was play with the love of winning and not the fear of losing", Osorio said after the match, Reuters news agency reports.

Centre-back Hummels, who was out of position for the goal, said Germany had ignored the warnings from their shaky 2-1 win over Saudi Arabia in their final warm-up game.

Germany coach Joachim Loew did not mince his words, saying: "We played very badly".

Mexico's Rafa Marquez is set make history by playing in his fifth World Cup, something just two other players have done.

It was just the second goal Mexico had scored in its last five games, equaling its worst offensive drought in four years.

Budweiser is one of the main sponsors for the 2018 World Cup in Russian Federation having signed a deal with FIFA as the official alcohol supplier to the tournament.
