Mexico City mini-earthquake after Lozano World Cup goal

Mexico striker Javier

Hirving Lozano scored the only goal in Moscow to stun a strangely subdued Germany and consign them to their first opening-match defeat at a FIFA World Cup since 1982.

Toni Kroos and Mats Hummels criticised Germany's failings after the holders slipped to a shock 1-0 defeat against Mexico in their opening World Cup match on Sunday.

El Tri sliced the German defense over and over with counterattacks, and Hirving Lozano cracked it open, cutting back to spin around Mesut Ozil and beat goalkeeper Manuel Neuer from about 10 yards in the 35th minute.

Mexico have reached the second round on their last six appearances in this tournament, but Juan Carlos Osorio's team have only won one of their four most recent games. But with Ochoa standing up to a relentless German attack that got off 25 shots, it was enough to leave Germany without a point one game into a World Cup for the first time in 36 years.

Both the conservative and compromise bills would provide money for Trump's long-sought border wall with Mexico. The White House has cited the Bible in defending its "zero tolerance" approach to illegal border crossings.

Each day during the tournament, we will be pulling together all the big stories and best reaction right here in a nutshell, so you do not miss a thing.

Paez described the game as a welcome distraction from Mexico's upcoming July 1 presidential election. Even though Germany outshot Mexico 25-12, had 61 percent possession and completed 519 passes to Mexico's 224, El Tri was the most unsafe team for much of the night.

And when Rafael Marquez came on in the 74th minute he made history too, tying a record by playing in his fifth World Cup. With both German full-backs pushing forward, Mexico were able to play long balls out from the back to spring an attack.

Osorio said he tried to shield the players from the criticism which has come his way so they could concentrate exclusively on the match. "We know it is going to be hard but we know that we can compete against any team". The win sees them top the group with Sweden and South Korea set to play tomorrow. From Manuel Neuer in goal, to Mats Hummels in defense, Toni Kroos in the midfield and Timo Werner and World Cup scoring machine Thomas Muller, Jogi Low's side is primed for a strong showing in Russian Federation. Thus concluded the trend of defending champions losing their opening match of the following World Cup, as Germany followed in the footsteps of France (2002), Italy (2010) and Spain (2014).
