(Updated) World Cup holders Germany lose 1-0 to Mexico

Lozano's 35th minute strike was enough for Mexico to claim a 1-0 win against the reigning world champions in their Group F clash at the Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow on Sunday (Monday NZ time).

Defending champions of World Cups haven't had a good time defending their title in the recent past, and Germany's defeat will put them under vast pressure to turn things around in little time. But during the 35th minute of the game, a lovely goal from Mexico's Hirving Lozano put the score at 1-0, Mexico.

Tremors were recorded in Mexico City after Hirving Lozano fired the winning goal past German goalkeeper Manuel Neuer in Russian Federation, according to seismic monitoring agency Simmsa.

Osorio also made a quick reference to an incident before the World Cup when a magazine published photos of a number of players enjoying a late night party.

"Tomorrow we will start thinking about [South] Korea because this World Cup is not only about the opening game", said Hernandez. Mexico are ahead in the game with a first-half goal from Lozano.

Thursday's World Cup opener was played in a library compared with the atmosphere at Sunday's Mexico-Germany game. In the second we knew full well that Germany have an outstanding team. The Arsenal playmaker was neat on the ball, as ever, but he was frequently pushed off the ball, getting dispossessed three times in a frantic opening half, before Mexico retreated and sought to defend their lead.

He said: "We weren't able to impose our usual way of playing, our attacking and passing was not effective". "We are aware that we need to improve our game", 2014 World Cup victor Toni Kroos said this week. Fate, and the World Cup draw, had other ideas.

Osorio's strategy against the four-time champions was speed on the wings with the 22-year-old Lozano, his fastest player, and Miguel Layun. "With all respect, I think in the first half of the match that we were the superior team". Thus concluded the trend of defending champions losing their opening match of the following World Cup, as Germany followed in the footsteps of France (2002), Italy (2010) and Spain (2014).

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".
