"We shouldn't underestimate them, even if it was a clear win at the Confederations Cup previous year".

"I don't know if it's the biggest win in (Mexico's) history but doubtless it is one of the biggest for sure", Lozano said.

Reigning champions: Outplayed, exposed, misfiring.

They had a number of chances against Mexico but failed to convert any of them. Spotting Lozano from a distance, he laid the ball forward.

Mexico came flying out of the blocks.

Germany responded through Joshua Kimmich - whose cross was nearly diverted into his own net by Carlos Salcedo - before Werner hit a shot on the turn too close to Guillermo Ochoa. Some German politicians and media questioned whether the players, who are of Turkish heritage, were sufficiently committed to Germany.

After the break, Germany took control.

90' - WIDE! An almighty scramble in the Mexico box and it falls to Brandt on the edge of the area. but he fires JUST wide.

Still, Mexico managed to create. And it's no more than they deserve.

Muslims around the world celebrate Eid al-Fitr
Where can you celebrate Eid al-Fitr in London? After the Eid prayer, there was a bazaar with activities for children. Sixteen years later, the crowd celebrating Eid - and the Islamic community in Saskatoon - has become much larger.

The half ended 1-0 in favour of Mexico. This could very well have been it.

After speculation that Mesut Ozil would be dropped for Germany's clash against Mexico, Joachim Low gives playmaker the nod.

Low's side had no answer to Mexico's counter-attacks in transition and looked fragile, a trait not usually associated with Die Mannschaft. Marvin Plattenhardt is in at left back; German media reported Jonas Hector has an illness.

Germany defeated Mexico 4-1 on the way to lifting last year's Confederations Cup trophy but Kroos believes that result is of little significance now.

Mexico's Hirving Lozano celebrates scoring their first goal with teammates. Despite the loss, you'd still expect them to advance with games against Sweden and South Korea coming up. The German side certainly did that but it wasn't the one they would've wanted.

After eight minutes, Mexico won a free kick 25 yards out when the roaming Carlos Vela was fouled by Hummels, but Miguel Layun's effort was wafted well over the bar. Osorio beefed up his defenses to hang on, pulling off Lozano and then, with a quarter of an hour left, sending in 39-year-old Rafael Marquez at the back to become the third man ever to play in five World Cups.

World Cup fever is everywhere.

The Mexican media had talked up Lozano in the build-up and we saw why after about 30 seconds.
