Mexico produced an upset as they secured a 1-0 win over Germany in their Group F World Cup opener on Sunday.
Highly rated young sensation Hirving Lozano was the hero for his nation.
Germany’s title defence of the World Cup started with defeat as Mexico secured a pulsating 1-0 victory in Moscow on Sunday.
The Mexicans made a sharp start to the game and looked a constant threat with their pace on the counter attack.
Meanwhile, so unlike Germany looked very vulnerable and were unable to deal with the changes.
In the 35th minute Hirving Lozano scored from a swift counter-attack from a low close-range shot in before the first half to put his team in command of Group F and settle a thriller at the Luzhniki Stadium.
And in local Mexican news it is believed that the celebrations in Mexico City were unsurprisingly vibrant.
It reportedly led to an ‘artificial’ mini-earthquake being recorded ‘possibly by massive jumping’ after Lozano’s goal, as noted by the Mexican government department.
Former Liverpool target Julian Brandt came ever so close to levelling things after his volley hit the bar, and then Mexico held on.
