Mexico Stuns World Champion To Claim 3 Points

The Mexican team became the talk of the town as they condemned Germany to their first World Cup defeat since 2010.

Mexico did the seemingly impossible to grab a 1-0 victory over Germany for a victory over the defending champion.

Coach, Juan Carlos Osario, and his team worked out a master plan to hit the German side on the counter using the duo of Hirving Lozano, and Javier Hernandez ‘Chicharito’.

The team was not in a hurry to get the ball but once they do, they used a direct approach relying on the speed of young players to break the German’s defense line.

The Luzhniki Stadium was lightened when El Tri was rewarded with a goal in the 35th through a quick break. Hernandez and Lozano and Andres Guardado were on the end of a counter-attack beating 4 German players in the build-up to the goal. Lozano was played through by Hernandez and he calmly beat Mesut Ozil to hit a shot beyond Manuel Neuer to score the only game of the match.

Germany tried to equalize but their effort was kept out by the defensive strength of Mexico. Toni Kroos came close hitting a free kick against the crossbar.

Germany would be playing Sweden as the Korea Republic takes on Mexico in the second game of Group F on 23 June.
