Germany coach Joachim Low makes freakish excuses after shock defeat to Mexico

1:25                                            Joshua Kimmich knows Mexico have the quality to hurt Germany after facing them in last year's Confederations Cup

The PSV winger is the first player in 60 years to score against Germany in their first Finals match as the defending champions and the top scorer for Mexico in World Cup qualifying was also his club's top scorer last season.

The 1-0 stunner, with Hirving Lozano scoring the winning goal, has given Mexicans hope that their team might win the tournament for the first time.

Tens of thousands of green-shirted El Tricolor fans had descended on Moscow's Luzhniki Stadium, part of the enormous South and Central American presence to have arrived in Russian Federation, in the hope of seeing something special.

It seems that Mexico fans may have caused an quake celebrating Hirving Lozano's goal in the firsr half of the match played on Sunday.

Mexico has competed in the Fifa World Cup since the sporting event kicked off in 1930, but the highest they have ever advanced is to the quarter-finals in 1986 and 1970.

Undaunted by their opposition, Mexico adopted a thrilling, attack-minded approach, continually threatening the German defense. Hirving Lozano banged the ball home on a counterattack.

Mexico play their next fixture against South Korea on Saturday, before taking on Sweden on 27 June.

"Mexico deserved the win", Hummels conceded, noting how he and Boateng were left exposed at the back and saying the team had failed to learn from a recent friendly defeat to Austria.

Mexico's win over Germany is like a modern incarnation of the David and Goliath story.

Episode six of Project Russia takes you through Mexico fans' rollercoaster of emotions before, during and after El Tri's historic win over Germany. "It wasn't my boyfriend or my husband, so as long as they continue to play well, who cares".

The reigning champions have endured a rocky build-up to Russian Federation 2018.

Trump approves plan to impose tough U.S. tariffs on China
Spain's newly appointed agricultural minister, Luis Planas, also opposed the tariff's impact, saying it was unjust. But he signaled that whatever the implications, "I have to do what I have to do" to address the trade imbalance.

Marquez, incidentally, has been in the headlines for all the wrong reasons of late, after the US Treasury Department froze his bank accounts a year ago and banned American and United States-based companies from doing business with him-after alleging that the Mexico helped Sinaloa cartel drug lord, Raul Flores Hernandez, to launder blood money.

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 previous year.

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

Elated fans waved Mexican flags and donned traditional "sombrero" hats at the iconic Angel of Independence monument in downtown Mexico City as they sang the country's unofficial soccer anthem, "Cielito Lindo", or "Pretty Little Sky", a popular folksong.

Should Germany change their midfield?

Mexico has taken one huge step towards getting out of the group stage with this victory.

But any ideas that Germany would waltz to three points in Moscow were quickly quashed.

Federation Internationale de Football Association fined Mexico and a number of other Latin American teams several times during World Cup qualifiers over the slurs.

To be precise, right from the first minute of the game, El Tri looked threatening with the ball and off it.
