Livescore: Result of Germany vs Mexico

Marco Reus Germany 2018

Mexico on Sunday caused arguably the biggest upset of World Cup 2018 so far when they beat Germany 1-0 in an absorbing contest thanks to a superbly-taken first-half goal from Hirving Lozano at the Luzhnki Stadium in Russian Federation.

Germany had won all seven of their previous opening matches in the finals, but Mexico were intent on taking the game to them from the first whistle.

The reaction from Juan Carlos Osorio to being told that an quake had registered in Mexico City amid the celebrations for Hirving Lozano's winning goal against Germany told you everything about why this perhaps should not register quite so highly on the Richter scale of World Cup upsets.

The reigning world champions Germany are tournament favourites, but the Mexican fans are confident they've come to beat Die Mannschaft.

France in 2002 and Spain in 2014 were the other defending champions to lose their opening matches.

Ousmane Dembele headed the ball into the path of Griezmann, who struck a first-time volley straight at the Brighton keeper. Man of the match Antoine Griezmann took the spot kick himself putting it past Mat Ryan who barely moved.

Well, how wrong we were, as Hirving Lozano's stunning counter attack goal against Germany has shown. We have a clear structure, there is no panic simply because we lost a match. Instead, a mistimed pass or failure to hit the target meant Mexico couldn't build on their 1-0 lead.

"We will make it", Germany coach Joachim Loew said. In the second we knew full well that Germany have an outstanding team.

And when Rafael Marquez came on in the 74th minute he made history too, tying a record by playing in his fifth World Cup.

Nonetheless, Low had no doubt that the team would not fall apart and would respond to the pressure, with Toni Kroos admitting the team would have to put things right ahead of their next match, a June 23 clash with Sweden. With both German full-backs pushing forward, Mexico were able to play long balls out from the back to spring an attack. Die Mannschaft breezed through World Cup qualifying, winning ten out of ten, scoring 43 and conceding just four, and lifted the FIFA Confederations Cup past year with a youthful squad, while Low recently penned a contract until 2020. "We want to get to the final of the World Cup and we have to take it step by step".

They'll be supporting Thomas Muller, who is looking to continue his ascension up the ranks as one of the greatest World Cup goalscorers ever. "We need to give all the credit where it is due, and that is with the players", Osorio said.
