No need to panic says Germany coach after shock Mexico defeat

No need to panic says Germany coach after shock Mexico defeat

The Germans are bidding to become the first team to retain the World Cup title since Brazil in 1962, but have now won only one of their last seven games in all competitions.

Mexican forward Hirving Lozano celebrates after scoring against defending champion Germany.

"We will certainly not change our match plan".

Matthaeus said Marco Reus, Germany's most unsafe player, who only played the last 30 minutes, must start against Sweden.

The German coach is in the crosshairs after sticking with a lackluster Mesut Ozil instead of speedy in-form winger Marco Reus, and setting his team up in such a way that allowed the Mexicans to launch countless counter-attacks. "In the second half we pressed more but Mexico dropped back", he added.

That feeling when you beat the World Champions.

Former England captain Terry Butcher said on 5 live: "It was one of the best games I have seen in my life".

On the other hand, Mexico coach Juan Carlo Osorio was thrilled with the turn of events, paying credit to the diligent planning on exploiting Germany's weak points and using his team's sheer blitz.

This result - which inflicted Germany with its first opening defeat since 1982 - will help the cause.

Late Pogba goal gives France victory over Australia after VAR controversy
The 27-year-old Griezmann has scored 21 global goals, including five during France's run to the Euro 2016 final. A good result for France , but this dynamic attack was anything but.

"I remember on the bus from the hotel to play Chile, after losing our first game in 2010, the silence was scary", said Spain global Cesc Fabregas on BBC One.

"(Osorio) deserves this win the most", said midfielder Rafael Marquez, who is playing at his fifth World Cup.

Germany were stunned 1-0 by Mexicans in the opening game of their World Cup defence as Hirving Lozano finished off a sharp counter-attack that exposed the ragged defending that the four-times winners had displayed in their warm-up games.

Germany's Toni Kroos threatened to level the score four minutes later, but his 25-yard free kick crashed off the crossbar.

However, when they faced off with Mexico, things didn't go as planned for them.

Loew probably had said a lot to his team at half-time and it showed with Germany pushing hard against Mexico in the second half. "We did not cover the spaces, we did not play our usual attacking game, we lost possession too often and so had to cover big distances, so the Mexicans had space to counter-attack", he said. "We played without fear and my team-mates were incredible".

In a central-midfield trio, Miguel Layun, Hector Herrera and Andres Guardado will look form an industrious and effective trident to support Mexico's star-studded line-up in the final third. Now, they had to face Germany's "A" team.

The Germans now face Sweden and South Korea and should still qualify from Group F. But their reputation is not what it was.

Germany's preparations for the tournament were plagued by poor results and controversy, and their problems were magnified in the Russian capital, leaving their proud record of never being eliminated in the group stage of a World Cup already in danger.
