Mexico Fans' World Cup Goal Celebration Causes 'Artificial Earthquake'

Mexico Fans' World Cup Goal Celebration Causes 'Artificial Earthquake'

Low's eleven were exposed by Mexico's counter-attacking, and had the Mexicans been more accurate in their final third, they would not have had to worry about Germany's attack after the 88th minute.

Analysts such as RTE's Didi Hamann had previously suggested that a relative lack of leadership could be Germany's undoing at these finals, and that looks as though it might turn out to be the case.

Mexico will face South Korea in its next game on Saturday in Rostov-on-Dov, Russia.

"In the first half the impression was that we were not as dynamic as we usually are and in the second half I didn't have the impression we were losing strength", the 58-year-old told reporters. "We need to give all the credit where it is due, and that is with the players", Osorio said.

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.

It means Mexico celebrated its goal so hard that it created its own natural disaster.

Germany have given themselves a mountain to climb if they intend to qualify from their group.

Germany had won every one of their previous tournament openers at European Championships and World Cups since Joachim Low took over as coach in 2006.

Lozano's lone strike in the first-half remained a difference between the two sides. In the first half we managed to play defensively with a great deal of intelligence and hit them on the counter.

In the space of 90 minutes, Germany went from being revered like Spain's 2010 World Cup winning side, to being faced with the pity and schadenfreude that befell the Spanish side of 2014.

Serbia, which missed out on the 2014 World Cup, had the early advantage in a tough group in Russian Federation that includes five-time champion Brazil and Switzerland.

"When it came to passing, we were a bit negligent, which is quite unfamiliar when I look at this team".

Sebastian Salazar and Herculez Gomez explain how Juan Carlos Osorio's tactics played a big role in Mexico's defeat of Germany at the World Cup. Only two teams prior, Italy in 1938 and Brazil in 1962 had managed to do it. "Teams develop and change, players finish their careers and you must bring in new players which makes it the most hard achievement".

"In all due respect, in the first half we were the better team".

"We showed we have a bright future and I am very satisfied with what we did".

Germany nearly responded immediately, as Kimmich won a free-kick at the top of the box that Kroos curled on target only to see Ochoa tip it onto the bar.

Mexico match-up was made extra exciting by the fact that Germany won the World Cup last tournament.

Mats Hummels, Boateng's unwitting co-star in this 2018 version of "Home Alone", made the same points but with added spice, claiming that the lessons of the poor 2-1 friendly versus Saudi Arabia, when Germany's game had suffered similar defects, had not been heeded. "We played with bravery when it was needed, and we also defended with all our hearts".

"It's disappointing to lose the first match", said Low, who has lost just three games in three World Cups as Germany's coach.
