Mexico upsets World Cup champion Germany 1-0

Mexico upsets World Cup champion Germany 1-0

Juan Carlos Osorio said his Mexico team had played "with a love of winning" as they pulled off a remarkable 1-0 win over holders Germany in their World Cup Group F opener.

The 2014 champions begin their title defense on Sunday morning as Germany enter the 2018 World Cup as heavy favorites to move deep in the tournament once again. Hirving Lozano scored the lone goal in the 35th minute, picking up Javier Hernandez's pass inside the penalty area and beating Mesut Ozil before shooting past Manuel Neuer from 10 yards.

Germany up until that point had launched a few attacks of their own, but had failed to capitalize, most noticeably when Timo Werner couldn't go past Mexico goalkeeper, the now-famous Guillermo Ochoa, when he could have passed to Julian Draxler, who was unmarked. They and millions back home have one wish, a demand really: for Mexico to play that "quinto partido", the fifth game of a World Cup.

A shaky warm-up campaign had called into question the dominant form the Germans showed in qualifying, but experience and records were on their side, having won every opening game at major tournaments since Joachim Loew took over as coach in 2006.

The atmosphere was vibrant in Moscow ahead of the Germany-Mexico match later on Sunday.

Migrant ship row escalates as Italy stands firm
More than 1.8 million people have entered Europe irregularly since 2014 and Italy is now sheltering some 170,000 asylum seekers. Salvini insisted Tuesday that the country's ports would no longer be open to foreign boats carrying migrants.

"Mexico deserved to win and we made it too easy for them, even though we knew exactly how not to play against them". 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.

"If seven or eight players are attacking then it is clear that our attacking power is greater", said Hummels.

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. In the first half of the match we were the superior team. Die Mannschaft breezed through World Cup qualifying, winning ten out of ten, scoring 43 and conceding just four, and lifted the FIFA Confederations Cup a year ago with a youthful squad, while Low recently penned a contract until 2020. No World Cup team since 2006 has taken as many shots without scoring.

"After this score we can say that this generation of players is here to achieve big things".
