Mexico over Germany, an upset six months in the making 06/17/2018

Mexico fans celebrate their win over Germany

Mexico was the deserving victor on Sunday, using a goal from Hirving "Chucky" Lozano to give El Tri the lead in the 35th minute that held up.

The goal, 10 minutes from the break seemed to have woken Germany up, but they had failed to build enough attacks in an attempt to equalize in the first half.

"I'm pretty sure that the [Brazil] manager told [the players], "look what happened to Germany, look what happened to Argentina"... the players are telling each other, 'make sure that doesn't happen to us, '" Mourinho said. Mexico has lost six straight knockout matches. "It's a situation we're not used to at all". They've had an unenviable record of having been knocked out in the round-of-16 in six successive tournaments, but after this famous win, they will surely be looking to at least go a step further in Russian Federation.

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

Germany will still be expected to recover and progress from Group F, but Joachim Low's side will have to perform much better in their remaining games against Sweden and South Korea. "Our team has experience of dealing with losses, the next match will be decisive and we have to win it". "And we're going to prepare for the next match", he said.

"We will not change our game plan".

"We need to focus on our strong points, which we haven't been able to do in our last couple of games".

Supporter Miguel Paez, who donned a Mexican wrestling mask in the colours of the national flag, said: "We aspire to win a World Cup this time".

Ravichandran Ashwin and rest of the bowlers lived up to his reputation and put up a clinical show. More importantly, they sucked up 103 deliveries and underlined their approach to play out time.

Loew started 8 of the 9 World Cup 2014 winners in his squad, with Mesut Ozil returning from a knee injury and Manuel Neuer back in goal following his lengthy absence.

In defence Mats Hummels sits alongside Bayern Munich teammate Jerome Boateng in a very formidable centre-back partnership, while Joshua Kimmich and Marvin Plattenhardt occupy the full-back roles.

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

Mexico took control after that and looked the more unsafe team on attack with Manuel Neuer pulling off a great save to deny Hector Herrera from long range in the 11 minute.

David Gauke, the Justice Secretary who collaborated with Ms Martin over her campaign, echoed the dismay within the Conservatives . She said making upskirting a specific offence would send a clear message that perpetrators will be punished.

"Everyone is very unhappy but tomorrow we have to look forward". Germany are reinforced with young blood with quick feet, tricks and flicks under their belt, the right balance of experienced and world class players in their varsity, fully equipped to become World Champions again.

After Lozano's goal, Mexico goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa pulled off a spectacular save to keep the score level, palming Toni Kroos' shot onto the crossbar. The last time Mexico saw a World Cup quarterfinal was 1986 when it hosted the competition.

"And I hope that whoever wins as president also knows how to lead us to victory", she said.
