Mexico's Hirving Lozano, celebrates scoring his side's opening goal during the group F match between Germany and Mexico at the 2018 soccer World Cup in the Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow, Russia, Sunday, June 17, 2018.
Hirving Lozano's finish in the first half gave Mexico a flying start and the North Americans defended well in the second half to not concede a goal and deliver an upset.
Tens of thousands of green-shirted El Tricolor fans had descended on Moscow's Luzhniki Stadium, part of the enormous South and Central American presence to have arrived in Russian Federation, in the hope of seeing something special. After Lozano's goal, Mexico goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa pulled off spectacular saves to keep Mexico in the lead till the end of the match. It was not through want of trying that they did not score more.
Germany, at times clearly overwhelmed by the fluidity of the Mexican forward line during the opening exchanges, eventually regrouped, subjecting their opponents to a barrage of late pressure.
"We need to focus on our strong points, which we haven't been able to do in our last couple of games". 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".

Prime Minister Shinzo Abe told reporters the government was "working united, with its first priority on saving people's lives". Major manufacturers such as Honda Motor Co and Mitsubishi Motors Corp resumed operations at their plants on Monday afternoon.
The underdogs have stolen the headlines so far in the World Cup. That set the tone for Mexico to torment Germany on the counterattack, with Lozano taking full advantage of right back Joshua Kimmich's tendency to go forward. Their preparations were also overshadowed by the outrage in Germany caused by photos of midfielders Ilkay Gundogan and Mesut Ozil with Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan. Also showing the World Cup this year, the Spanish language NBCUniversal-owned outlet does not cover all of the 56 markets that make up the early metric, but you can be damn sure Telemundo had a lot of eyeballs all over the country watching the action out of Moscow yesterday.
"In the second half we were better, Mexico got exhausted, but we did not score, although there were enough chances for at least one".
Speaking ahead of the clash, Mexico boss Juan Carlos Osorio claimed his players could go "toe-to-toe" with Germany.
"In the first half we played very badly". Carlos Salcedo is coming off of a strong season with Eintracht Frankfurt and needs to continue playing well in Russian Federation.
Mexico, the 15th-ranked team in the world, scored the lone goal of the match in the 35th minute.
Lozano, Javier Hernandez, Carlos Vela formed a three-man frontline and they had the Germans on their toes from the start with their slick passing and running.
