The Germans are bidding to become the first team to retain the World Cup title since Brazil in 1962, but have now won only one of their last seven games in all competitions.

Get ready with the popcorn and soda drinks to catch Germany vs Mexico on Sony Pictures Networks as they hold the broadcast rights of 2018 FIFA World Cup in India.

Then there was the ageless Rafael Marquez who came on in the 74th minute to make some history of his own, tying a record by playing in his fifth World Cup.

In his World Cup debut, Hirving Lozano scored Mexico's winning goal in the 35th minute, picking up Javier Hernandez's pass inside the penalty area and dodging Mesut Ozil before firing past Manuel Neuer from 10 yards.

"It's a great opportunity for Mexican football, to be here and play the current world champions", Osorio told reporters in Moscow.

"It's definitely the best goal I've ever scored so far in my entire life", the 22-year-old Lozano said.

On countless occasions we have seen him illuminate Premier League matches, hence why it was a real shock to see him miss out at the World Cup. The team has a knack for offering a glimmer of hope for a run towards the semis, and then immediately stumbling once the tournament is down to 16 teams.

"Everybody is really unhappy and crestfallen but we have to put this behind us", said Low.




Brazil, and their star Neymar, made their bow in Russian Federation in Rostov-on-Don but gutsy Switzerland battled back to cancel out a Philippe Coutinho strike midway through the first half of the Group E tie.

The Germans next play Sweden on June 23 before facing South Korea in their final group game four days later.

"There are just two or three players who can score two or three goals per game, (Lionel) Messi, (Cristiano) Ronaldo and Neymar, who can shake things up with a stroke of individual genius".

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. No World Cup team since 2006 has taken as many shots without scoring.

"What happened today was an natural disaster of joy for us - just imagine, we beat the world champions!" said Laura Villegas, a 45-year-old merchant who downed her beer with tequila in one gulp. Low's dropping of Sane from his 23-man Finals squad has caused consternation, and this was a game in which Germany could have done with his pace and guile. Eighteen of its shots came in the second half, when it enjoyed a 2-to-1 advantage in time of possession.

There was also the unscripted noise, that incredible boom that rattles the brain, created by tens of thousands of Mexican soccer supporters, many from homes in the United States, who have journeyed extraordinary distances to watch perhaps the country's most capable team.

"I think they are very good on the ball, they have two central midfielders very capable of commanding the game, controlling the game and governing the game if we allow them to do it".
