Hirving Lozano the hero as Mexico stun holders Germany

Germany v Mexico starts at 4pm on Sunday

Germany v Mexico starts at 4pm on Sunday

Mexico supporters outnumbered Germany fans at the Luzhniki Stadium and made nearly all of the noise, roaring their team forward.

With the win, Mexico is now in charge of its own destiny; with another victory in its last two games, it could advance to the knockout stage as the group champion, avoiding a second-round matchup with Brazil.

What seemed like fantasy is now possible.

PSV winger Hirving Lozano scored the only goal of the game when he broke down the left, cut inside past a weak challenge from Mesut Ozil and fired past Manuel Neuer at the near post. After all, his men, the World Cup holders, had shown themselves to be a fragmented team in the Luzhniki in a 1-0 defeat to Mexico on Sunday night.

He added: "They played with bravery when it was needed and we also defended with all our hearts and I think that we need to give all the credit where it is due, and that is with the players". As we saw with Argentina on Saturday, all it takes is one match in which the favourites look a bit shaky and the rest can start to smell blood.

North American soccer has always been magnitudes below Europe and South America's best.

"In the first half, we played very badly, we were not able to impose our usual way of playing, attacking and there were lots of counter attacks against us and we were very vulnerable".

Germany came on strong in the second half but could not breach the Mexican defence, with the legendary Rafael Marquez coming off the bench to do his part - he's now played in five World Cups.

"Our stability is not good, you have to say - often only Jerome [Boateng] and I were at the back, so they mercilessly attacked us".

Patty Jenkins wisely chose a more radiant colour palette in Wonder Woman and she has continued the same in the sequel too. Gadot is, of course, starring, along with Chris Pine as Steve Trevor again and Kristen Wiig as the villainous Cheetah.

But Cuper told reporters, "I can nearly 100 per cent say he will play, save for any unforeseen factors at the last minute". Cuper also entertained a question from a reporter about Salah's prospects of emerging as the top scorer at the tournament.

At least 3 dead in Japanese quake
The authorities said that none of the 15 nuclear reactors in this region have been affected by the quake. Both the high-speed Shinkansen and local trains suspended operations during the morning commuting hours.

By the final minutes, the tired Mexicans were playing more with their hearts than with their feet. If Javier Hernandez and Carlos Vela had been sharper, Mexico could have won by several goals.

Fans in Mexico use the chant to insult opposing goalkeepers as they take a goal kick. "We will have to analyze why that was the case".

Hummels described the defeat as a "wake-up call too late".

Another alternative to watch Mexico vs Germany is to try out the FuboTV 7-day free trial. Fate, and the World Cup draw, had other ideas. "Everybody in Mexico wants that fifth game".

It wouldn't be a surprise, then, to see another faltering display in Volgograd as a youthful Three Lions side dip their toes into the World Cup waters.

Last week in Denmark, Osorio wore a dark T-shirt with "CERO EXCUSAS" in green, white and red lettering.

Hirving Lozano's shot hits the back of the net in Mexico's 1-0 upset of World Cup champions Germany.

Loew threw on Marco Reus in place of Sami Khedira and, with 10 minutes to go, yet another striker in Mario Gomez, to reinforce Timo Werner, who had failed to make much of a mark. "We have our style in the Mexican national team, and we're going to match up their game".
