What went wrong for Germany vs Mexico

Defending champions Germany trailed Mexico 1-0 at half-time in their World Cup Group F opener on Sunday after Lozano finished off a sweeping move to smash the ball in after 34 minutes and release an explosion of noise in Luzhniki Stadium.

Because, despite Mexico tiring after a relentless hour of football, they were utterly incapable of finding a way through.

Following Mexico's unexpected win over Germany, one El Tri fan couldn't hold back his emotions and proposed to his now fiancé. Germany created plenty of chances, with Joshua Kimmich, in particular, proving a threat down the right-hand side, but Mexico were full value for their lead at the break.

"In tournaments, losing a match can happen and you have to accept it".

Low and his players have a six-day wait to face Sweden and rebuild their campaign, with midfielder Toni Kroos admitting they "are now under pressure - we have to get six points from the next two games". This one, too, might have alarm bells ringing in Germany.

In his World Cup debut, Hirving Lozano scored Mexico's winning goal in the 35th minute, picking up Javier Hernandez's pass inside the penalty area and dodging Mesut Ozil before firing past Manuel Neuer from 10 yards. "We are aware that we need to improve our game", 2014 World Cup victor Toni Kroos said this week.

Who will come out on top in the battle of the managers Joachim Löw or Juan Carlos Osorio? "We lost the game in the first half".

German newspaper Die Welt took a swipe at Mexico today in the name of World Cup soccer, publishing a somewhat inflammatory headline about what Germany would do to them on the pitch by alluding to US President Donald Trump's plans for a barrier on the border. Germany struggled when out of possession, and Ozil was a non-entity when they didn't have the ball.

For a defending World Cup champion, however, the situation is more common.

Germany's last row of defenders were forced into haphazard one-on-ones near the centre-circle to stop the waves of Mexico players in their tracks.

The 39-year-old came on in the 74th minute of Mexico's 1-0 win over Germany, following in the footsteps of Germany's Lotthar Matthaeus and fellow Mexican Antonio Carbajal.
