Watch fans cause mini natural disaster in Mexico City after game-winning goal

Germany didn't play the way it usually plays.

"We will not change our match plan because if we are able to play out our ideas then we have players who can deliver".

Germany is now in an unfamiliar position.

If ever there's a place to enhance your reputation, it's most certainly the World Cup.

But his plans to become only the third side in the World Cup's 88-year history to successfully defend their title were in disarray yesterday after the Mexicans tore into his defence from the start.

Reminded of that statistic, Loew offered a guarantee. "We will not suffer that fate".

He adds: "We are so polarized and against each other these days, with the elections and everything else going on, that this brings us back together and makes us feel like things are possible".

Argentina were held by Iceland, Brazil by Switzerland, France squeezed past Australia and Germany lost to Mexico.

"As far as the psychological situation, everyone is unhappy, crestfallen, " Loew said. We put a lot of pressure on them and made their lives very tough and very hard. We have to put this behind us.

"Our team has experience of losses. But the fact that we won renews our hope". "It goes without saying".

Osorio believes his man-of-the-moment Lozano has everything it takes to play in the English top flight, and insists any team willing to take a chance on the 22-year-old will be rewarded. Germany had also put four past Mexico last summer.

"I think that a lot of the hand-wringing is for show. Loew must now change direction", said Die Welt. "You can't compare the two".

Hirving Lozano scored the "Gooooooooolazo" and the Mexicans' solid defense during the second half gave their team a victory.

Mexico fans have long shouted an insult that gay rights groups argue is homophobic at keepers taking goal kicks.
