Quake felt as Mexico football fans celebrate win over Germany

Quake felt as Mexico football fans celebrate win over Germany

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

This wasn't a wake-up call, but the outcome of letting their opponents come all guns blazing.

Interestingly, he mentioned PSV Eindhoven Hirving Lozano as the man to watch for the Mexicans, noting: "Lozano is our star, I have prayed that he scores today, if we win he will certainly matter". The celebrations were so huge their that seismologists in Mexico said that they caused an artificial quake. "But who would you rather play against?"

The reigning champions have endured a rocky build-up to Russian Federation 2018. "He can not go on as he has done in the last 12 years".

Low and his players have a six-day wait to face Sweden and rebuild their campaign, with midfielder Toni Kroos admitting they "are now under pressure - we have to get six points from the next two games".

Mesut Ozil and Ilkay Gundogan, both of Turkish descent, met Erdogan last month with Reuters reporting that both were criticized by German politicians for doing so.

"Mexico played brilliantly on the counter attack, they played at a pace that Germany didn't want to play at".

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

Jerome Boateng's build-up to the finals was also hampered by a groin injury, and the Bayern Munich center-back found himself exposed often as Mexico's speed was a constant threat on the counter-attack.




Those two contrasting moods seemed evident in opening exchanges, as Germany appeared somewhat sluggish and labored.

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

The resulting corner caused panic in the Germany box, before a grateful Manuel Neuer pounced on the ball.

Guillermo Ochoa was huge in goal for El Tri as well, making save after save to keep the mighty Germans out.

Thankfully for Mexico, Marquez has little fear of running into any Americans in Russian Federation, thanks to a tremendous World Cup qualifying strike in Couva from young Carenage resident, Alvin Jones. That's why the first half was like it was and Mexico obviously deserved to win it.

Juan Carlos Osorio's side had other ideas, however, holding their own against the favourites' fearsome but slowing midfield and finding space at the back and seeking to end 33 years without a win against Germany.

They played a high line against the pacy quartet of Javier Hernandez, Lozano, Carlos Vela and Miguel Layun.

"What you saw with Germany is that they've got players now that aren't very athletic". "In the second half, we were able to press more, but Mexico drew back and then carried the ball forward fast". Mexico repeatedly targeted the right flank to great effect with Lozano given the freedom to run the channels.

Mexico and Switzerland stir the pot at the World Cup.
