Lozano, Mexico top Germany in thrilling Group F opener

Germany coach Joachim Low lifts the 2014 World Cup

Hummels felt Germany did not heed the warning of their final warm-up friendly against Saudi Arabia that ended in a tight 2-1 win, their only success in seven matches since the end of the World Cup qualifying campaign past year.

Carlos Vela, Lozano and Javier Hernandez had all been wasteful from good positions before Lozano gave Mexico a deserved lead in the 34th minute, combining beautifully with Hernandez before cutting onto his right foot and firing past Manuel Neuer into the bottom corner.

The finish came just two minutes prior to Toni Kroos' brilliant free kick, which was kept out by an equally-incredible save by El Tri goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa. "We all dream of playing in a World Cup and to start in such a positive and important way - I think it's my best goal by far".

"They are the best team in the world", goalscorer Lozano said, describing his strike as "the best goal of my life".

"What happened today was an quake 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.

And it's a victory that may have changed the course of the tournament for both teams.

4-time champions and the current holder of the FIFA World Cup takes on Mexico. "Now what we have to do is win the next match against Sweden".

Hirving Lozano stunned Germany as he broke the deadlock in Mexico's opening match in Russian Federation against Joachim Low's lacklustre side on Sunday afternoon.

"Someone must tell Ozil to catch a wake up".

Despite a plethora of depth and talent - a second string German team won the Confederations Cup a year ago - the German side arrived in Moscow Sunday on the back of a poor run of form.

Hirving Lozano finished off a terrific team goal to seal a surprise victory over the defending champions in the first major shock at Russian Federation 2018.

Germany is bidding to become the first team to retain the World Cup title since Brazil in 1962. "It's a situation we're not used to at all. And we're going to prepare for the next match", he said. Eighteen of its shots came in the second half, when it enjoyed a 2-to-1 advantage in time of possession. Other than that, though, Low's side had to settle for half chances, while Kimmich nearly forced an own goal with a nice cross in the 16th minute.

It will be a stiff test for Mexico, who is looking to break the curse of six-straight tournaments in which it was unable to get out of the Round of 16. "We suffered a lot to get this result".

With the touch of Zinedine Zidane and the gangling limbs of Marouane Fellaini, the 23-year-old is unlike any footballer you've seen before - and an absolute joy to watch. "Nobody guarantees you anything". "We are here in this competition, and we want to stay until the last day".

"We have shown that we can compete with any power".
