Mexico Celebrations Set Off Earthquake Detectors After Victory Over Germany

Mats Hummels World Cup: Germany vs Mexico, Live Scorecard, Goals and Latest Match Stats Updates Online

Well, not everyone is in doubt.

The last three World Cup holders have all failed to win the first game of their defence.

Neuer hasn't played for his club, Bayern Munich, since September, only playing the two warm-up games against Austria and Saudi Arabia, but Loew had been insistent that he was his first-choice goalkeeper.

Hirving Lozano finished off a thrilling Mexico counter-attack after 35-minutes to put his side ahead.

The goal decided the match - a match Germany didn't expect to lose.

Meanwhile, Lozano termed the victory as one of the biggest in Mexico's history.

"It's a great result and shows our hard work. I know this generation as everything they need to make it, and Osorio does know that two".

SIMMSA, the "seismic monitoring network" from the Institute of Geological and Atmospheric Research, is reporting that tremors were detected in Mexico City during the country's World Cup match against Germany on Sunday. They hadn't lost an opening game since the then-West Germany succumbed 2-1 to Algeria in 1982. And coming second could well see the four-times champions face the five-times World Cup winners Brazil if the latter win Group E.

'Possibly by massive jumps during Mexico's goal at the World Cup. Hirving Lozano banged the ball home on a counterattack.

"It was not a lack of stamina that meant we could not turn the match around".

"In the second half we pressed more but Mexico dropped back and played on the break".

Mexico boss Juan Carlos Osorio also felt his side's victory was built upon their superiority in the first 45 minutes. "Loew must now change direction", said Die Welt.

Kimmich's charging runs far up the field can be a blessing and a curse for Germany.

His calming influence was crucial, marshaling the space in front of Mexico's back four as wave after wave of German attacks descended on the area.

It means Mexico celebrated its goal so hard that it created its own quake. Germany had 60 percent of the possession, 25 shots, nine on target, yet couldn't crack El Tri's defense.

He doesn't share the doll's red hair or penchant for jeans, but got the name as a young player at Mexican club Pachuca when he played pranks by hiding under teammates' beds.

The Mexican Football Federation (FMF) has been repeatedly fined for its fans' use of the slur but has controversially avoided a stadium ban, a sanction imposed on other Latin American associations for persistent homophobic abuse by supporters.

Germany vs. Mexico will kick off at 11 a.m. ET. Widely considered a slur, some argue there is no discriminatory intent.

Germany take on Sweden in Sochi on Saturday in a must-win game, while Mexico and their legion of fans in Russian Federation head to Rostov-on-Don to face South Korea on the same day.
