World Cup: Germany vs Mexico, Live Scorecard, Goals and Latest Match Stats Updates Online

And Germany lost their opener for the first time since 1982 (versus Algeria) and are the fifth defending world champions to lose in their opener in a World Cup. Join us right here for all the action from Moscow's Luzhniki Stadium.

And Team Mexico was well-represented in San Diego as well, where fans of all ages celebrated in the streets of National City, waving the Mexican flag, singing and dancing. Mexico were aggressive off the ball, pressing and hounding the Germans, who were often ponderous in possession.

Undaunted by their opposition, Mexico adopted a thrilling, attack-minded approach, continually threatening the German defense.

The blazing fast counterattacks launched by Mexico took Germany by surprise over and over again, and despite coming close many times, it was Hirving Lozano's 35th minute effort from close range that was enough to seal Germany's fate in Moscow. Germany, meanwhile, has to regroup.

But it was too little, too late. If anything, the scoreline might have flattered Germany as Mexico wasted a number of fine chances on the counter.

At least two sensors inside Mexico City detected an quake at approximately the same time as Lozano's goal, according to SIMMSA, a "seismic monitoring network" operated by the area's Institute of Geological and Atmospheric Research. Francois Omam-Biyik scored one of the most famous goals in African football history to win the match.

Read: Who should you root for if your country isn't at Russian Federation 2018? The problems began previous year when the US Treasury Department accused team captain Rafael Marquez of being a front man for a drug kingpin. Their ideal 10-0 record during qualifiers feels like a distant memory after narrowly beating Saudi Arabia 2-1 a little over a week ago. They prepared well and hopefully they can make it.

Mexico, conversely, have been riding the crest of a wave coming into Russian Federation 2018.

Those two contrasting moods seemed evident in opening exchanges, as Germany appeared somewhat sluggish and labored. Javier "Chicharito" Hernandez, who looked shaky early on, sent a long through ball forward for Lozano, racing into the box on the left wing.

Vladimir Putin says football unites planet as World Cup begins in Russian Federation
Putin and Infantino smiled and shrugged as they sat next to Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman. The hosts defeated Saudi Arabia 5-0 - beating the 4-0 scoreline between Brazil and Mexico in 1950.

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.

"With all due respect, I think that in the first half of the match we were the superior team".

Juan Carlos Osorio's men have played some brilliant football against lesser opposition but crumbled in the face of more quality ones.

Lozano's nickname comes from the haunted doll Chucky in the "Child's Play" franchise of horror movies.

Osorio was certainly living up to his pre-tournament promise.

"In the first half we played very badly", Low said.

The last three World Cup holders have all failed to win the first game of their defence.

His calming influence was crucial, marshaling the space in front of Mexico's back four as wave after wave of German attacks descended on the area.
