FIFA World Cup 2018 match highlights

"Possibly by massive jumps during the goal by Mexico in the World Cup". And its raucous supporters were rewarded with a 1-0 win over Germany that made history on several fronts.

The PSV winger is the first player in 60 years to score against Germany in their first Finals match as the defending champions and the top scorer for Mexico in World Cup qualifying was also his club's top scorer last season.

Mexico President Enrique Pena Nieto joined the party, saying on Twitter: "Confirmed: Mexico competes and wins against the best in the world, Congratulations to @miseleccionmx!"

A rocket in Rostov from Brazil midfield ace Philippe Coutinho might have been the individual highlight of day four in the Russian Federation 2018 World Cup.

El Tri sliced the German defense over and over with counterattacks, and Hirving Lozano cracked it open, cutting back to spin around Mesut Ozil and beat goalkeeper Manuel Neuer from about 10 yards in the 35th minute.

"It's pretty simple. We played like we did against Saudi Arabia, but against a better opponent", Hummels said to ZDF. Its great to start on the right foot, against the reigning world champions.

From the outset at the Luzhniki Stadium, Germany were overrun by a more intense, quick-witted and cohesive Mexico side which threatened from the first minute.

The Group F consisting of Germany, Mexico, Sweden and South Korea is a challenging group.

Gerard Pique wishes Antoine Griezmann success after Barca snub
Griezmann joined Atletico from Real Sociedad in 2014 and has scored 112 goals in all competitions for the club. He also posted a video on Twitter with the captain, "My fans, my team, my home".

"We started drawing up a plan six months ago, we had to change some parts because of injuries, but basically using players who are very fast down the flanks", said Osorio, who was born in Colombia and educated in the United States.

Even in the face of severe second-half German possession, they looked comfortable until substitute Julian Brandt hit the post with a fine late strike. Fielding a two-man midfield was nothing but suicidal when your team relies on a passing game. Let us look at the 3 key battles which will decide today's game.

German fans were probably wondering why Sane wasn't included in the 23-man squad after losing to Mexico - but BBC pundit Danny Murphy went way overboard with his comments. "We have to focus on our strong points".

Low's side had 26 shots, the most by a side without scoring in a World Cup match since 2006 (Portugal v England, 29 shots in a 0-0 draw). "It's a situation we're not used to at all. And we're going to prepare for the next match", he said. "We suffered a lot to get this result".

The conventional wisdom in football is that despite the chaotic nature of the sport, despite all the shocks we have witnessed, you can always rely on Germany to go about their business in an efficient and ruthless manner. "Nobody guarantees you anything".

"We can compete against anyone", Lozano told Televisa Deportes. We wanted to avoid it.

"If we go on like this, I'll be anxious", he added.
