Germany coach Joachim Loew said the defending champions played "very badly,"warning that the shock defeat left them with little margin for error in their remaining group games".

Well, not everyone is in doubt.

Low brought on striker Mario Gomez in a final attempt to rescue a point but the Stuttgart forward missed a late header and El Tri held on for their first ever win over Germany in a World Cup.

"Mexico broke five or six times in the first half and they had two or three opportunities in the second half when just the final pass was lacking for them", said former England captain Alan Shearer on BBC One.

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.

Berlin's Morgenpost wrote, "Germany have lost their way". We all ran our hearts out.

"It's a great result and shows our hard work".




"Mexico totally deserves the victory, Germany totally deserves the defeat", Mourinho told RT after Hirving Lozano's first-half goal gave the Mexicans a 1-0 win at Moscow's Luzhniki Stadium to get their World Cup campaign off to the ideal start.

After a number of tumultuous seasons dealing with injury problems, Reus defied the odds to make the Germany squad, but many were unhappy he was left out of the starting XI.

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. Their ideal 10-0 record during qualifiers feels like a distant memory after narrowly beating Saudi Arabia 2-1 a little over a week ago.

Mexico had never beaten Germany in a competitive match but was transformed from the team which lost to the Germans 4-1 in last year's Confederations Cup, conceding twice in the opening eight minutes. They've had an unenviable record of having been knocked out in the round-of-16 in six successive tournaments, but after this famous win, they will surely be looking to at least go a step further in Russian Federation. From there, they had Germany rattled and fully deserved the goal from Hirving Lozano when it came. "Our team has experience of dealing with losses, the next match will be decisive and we have to win it". "We need to see what caused this".

The defending champions' ragged defending displayed in their warm-up games was exposed again as Lozano finished off a sharp counter-attack to score in their World Cup Group F opener on Sunday.

The rest, as they say, is history - Mexico's keeper Guillermo Ochoa did more than his part to preserve the lead as Germany found some composure in the second half. "In the second half we were able to press match but Mexico also pulled back". Juan Carlos Osorio's men have played some brilliant football against lesser opposition but crumbled in the face of more quality ones.

"You had the feeling that the ball just wouldn't go in anyhow", Loew said.
