Mexico stun champions Germany 1-0 in World Cup opener

The world champions lost their opening game at a World Cup for the first time in 36 years as Hirving Lozano's first-half goal condemned them to a 1-0 defeat in their Group F clash in Moscow on Sunday afternoon. "I know this generation as everything they need to make it, and Osorio does know that two". Ochoa came to Mexico's rescue many more times in the game, and was one of the main reasons Germany couldn't equalize. After all, when Germany pulled off a huge upset at the Winter Olympics by defeating Canada 4-3 in the men's ice hockey semi-finals, the Germans couldn't resist a bit of gloating. "In many previous tournaments we've always won the first match but we have to accept it".

Spectators watched the match on a big TV screen in the central Zocalo square and after the game, they converged around the iconic Angel of Independence monument waving Mexico flags. "Our team has experience of losses". The 22-year-old winger who plays for PSV Eindhoven, however, went past Ozil with a cutback before arrowing a shot that beat Manuel Neuer at his near post.

From there, they had Germany rattled and fully deserved the goal from Hirving Lozano when it came.

The quake, it added, was possibly caused by "massive jumps" throughout the city in response to Lozano's goal. Now, it's all about using that momentum to propel them forward as they look to realize their World Cup aspirations.

But they were still hoping to hold on to the tradition of winning their opening game at the World Cup as they have done in their last seven consecutive appearances.

Mexico's seismic monitoring network, Simmsa, said the vibrations were picked up by at least two sensors when Lozano scored.

5 people die in South Texas pursuit crash involving undocumented immigrants
Dimmit County officials confirmed Sunday afternoon that five people have died in a crash involving undocumented immigrants. The passenger who was not ejected from the auto also was believed to be an American citizen, and in custody.

Coach Juan Carlos Osorio's bold approach - often leaving three attackers up the pitch even when defending set-pieces - paid off, as celebrating fans in Mexico City caused a minor quake.

"If we go on like this, I'll be anxious", he added. That's why the first half looked the way it did. He responded by talking about remaining group games against South Korea and Sweden.

Germany pressed in the second half but struggled to find the target.

Gianluigi Buffon was in the Italy squad for five FIFA World Cups from 1998 through 2014, but didn't play in his first tournament. "We played with bravery when it was needed, and we also defended with all our hearts".

A second-half header from Steven Zuber cancelled out a sensational early goal from Philippe Coutinho as Switzerland and Brazil drew 1-1 in a tight Group E World Cup opener.

"It's disappointing to lose the first match", said Low, who has lost just three games in three World Cups as Germany's coach.
