As Lozano scored, Mexico's fans went wild, in Russian Federation and around the world. "But Germany had no plan B, no clear chances and no defensive intelligence".

Then tonight Brazil take to the pitch for the first time in Russian Federation, and their opening game is always an event.

It was a defeat that left Germany "crestfallen", was described as an "embarrassment" by the country's media and even triggered an earth tremor, such were the celebrations in Mexico. But with Ochoa standing up to a relentless German attack that got off 25 shots, it was enough to leave Germany without a point one game into a World Cup for the first time in 36 years. Germany will now be under pressure when they face Sweden next in their second group tie.

The reigning world champions looked disjointed and unable to deal with El Tri's fast, fluid football in the first half, culminating in Hirving Lozano's 35th-minute goal on the break. But two minutes after conceding the goal came Germany's best chance of the evening when Kimmich was brought down a few yards outside the box.

Germany's line-up poses some tough questions for Low, and he has said that Julian Draxler will start, likely joining Mesut Ozil at the expense of Marco Reus.

"We looked nervous and were not able to play the way we wanted to play", Germany coach Joachim Loew said. They and millions back home have one wish, a demand really: for Mexico to play that "quinto partido", the fifth game of a World Cup.

Germany were lucky to the extent that majority of Mexico counterattacks lacked the final flourish or touch, which could have made the result read much worse for the four-time champions. Mexico has been bounced from the round of 16 at each of the last six World Cups. "We need to see what caused this". "We just lost the ball up front far too easily, and Mexico had always two or three people up front whom we failed to block efficiently".

The match starts at 17:00 on 17 June 2018.

Mexico started the game with the more attacking minded unit and didn't shy away from testing Germany's defence with threatening attacks. they found the victor through a superb counter-attack in the 56th minute and held on to the lead for the rest of the game.
