Germans awake to doom and gloom after Mexico loss

Lozano caused a small artificial natural disaster when he scored a historic winning goal for Mexico against Germany in their first World Cup match at Russian Federation 2018.

The Germans are bidding to become the first team to retain the World Cup title since Brazil in 1962. The Lozano goal prompted what Mexican authorities claimed was a minor quake in the Mexico City area, probably prompted by the entire city jumping into the air and landing at the same time.

"We simply have to concentrate on our strong points that we have not been able to bring to bear in the last two matches".

Germany will still be fancied to qualify from Group F with South Korea likely whipping boys. Time and again their backline was caught out by blistering Mexican counter-attacks and, were the opponents that bit more ruthless, they would have conceded far more than just one goal.

"Mexico deserved the game because we made it too easy for them, knowing we should not have allowed that to happen".

"Whenever you play against world powers, champions and potential champions, it's a little special", Ochoa added.

After the result, center-back Hummels said Germany had ignored the warnings from their shaky 2-1 win over Saudi Arabia in their final warm-up game.

The victory was a redemption of sorts for the team's Colombian coach, Juan Carlos Osorio, who has been widely criticized by pundits and a football-loving public for his tactics and management of the national team, but analysts praised Mexico for the pace of their attack. "There is no need to break out in panic just because we have lost a match". His midfield colleague Toni Kroos, said, "I think we did not find any solutions in the first half".

Gareth Southgate praises England's fighting spirit after late Tunisia win
I think England rolls to an easy tournament opening win on Monday, so I'll back the Three Lions with a -1.5 handicap. England will be back in action on Sunday, when they face Panama in the second round of Group G fixtures.

SIMMSA, the "seismic monitoring network" from the Institute of Geological and Atmospheric Research, is reporting that tremors were detected in Mexico City during the country's World Cup match against Germany on Sunday. "Our team has experience of dealing with losses, the next match will be decisive and we have to win it".

"We won't fall apart", insisted Loew, but that is exactly what his defence did in the first-half.

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.

However, when they faced off with Mexico, things didn't go as planned for them.

"Our motto was play with the love of winning and not the fear of losing", said a delighted Osorio.

After a scoreless first half, Costa Rica goalkeeper Keylor Navas withstood a barrage of Serbian challenges to open the second with the boisterous Costa Rican fans cheering him on at Samara Arena. Not only are the Germans the defending the World Cup champions, they are also ranked No. 1 in the Federation Internationale de Football Association rankings.

Speaking to ESPN FC in his role as ambassador of Germany's Euro 2024 bid, the 34-year-old captain of the 2014 winners said the team faced similar difficulties in 2010 and four years ago, when poor results in their second games (against Serbia and Ghana, respectively) had put their progress from the group stage temporarily in doubt.
