Germany stunned by Mexico's 1-0 victory

2018 Mesut Ozil runs followed by Sami Khedira during a training session of the German team at the 2018 soccer World Cup in Vatutinki near Moscow

We have to win our next two games or that's the World Cup done with.

"I am incredibly happy", said Pulido, with his girlfriend and son on a Father's Day outing.

He did, however, admit that following the defeat to Mexico, several issues were addressed within the team. He outpaced Jerome Boateng and with a less than ideal pass found Lozano, who controlled the ball, cut inside Mesut Ozil, held off a charging Toni Kroos and slotted past Manuel Neuer.

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

"Mexico were clever, we did better in the second half and Mexico got exhausted".

"Khedira would have had to help Kroos in this case, take over the role and make the game fast, but he did not do that.

Our team has experience of dealing with losses, the next match will be decisive and we have to win it".

"We have actually been saying that for the last 10, 15 years, I would say".

Finishing second in the group could well mean facing Brazil rather than Switzerland or Serbia in the next round.

"The first half against Mexico was a wake-up call".

Macron hopeful on eurozone banking union, to work with Italy on migration
The row centred on the charity ship Aquarius, which both Italy and Malta refused to let dock at their ports. It added that Italy was waiting for French to take action to "heal the situation that has been created".

Germany's Joshua Kimmich (left) and Mexico's Hirving Lozano compete for the ball.

"It went off, the players who weren't involved on Sunday really threw themselves into it", he said. The reason for the Germany captain's tardy arrival though, was more telling.

But it was not to be.

If that doesn't demonstrate just how big of an emotional release the goal was, nothing will. Germany is widely expected to contend for the World Cup again, while Mexico is not among the favorites.

Mexico's team will advance to play South Korea in its next game Saturday in the Rostov area in Russian Federation.

But their reputation is not what it was.

Hummels felt Germany did not heed the warning of their final warm-up friendly against Saudi Arabia that ended in a tight 2-1 win, their only success in seven matches since the end of the World Cup qualifying campaign a year ago.

"A minor setback is not a bad thing to bring the team closer together", Lahm said.

"For example, when (university football team) the Pumas play, and more than 60,000 people are jumping at the same time, it creates a detectable signal", she told AFP.
