Hummels criticises Germany tactics in Mexico loss

Mexican football fans celebrated their team's World Cup win against Germany so exuberantly they set off natural disaster detectors in Mexico City.

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 ever.

But despite the loss - the first for a German team in a World Cup opener since 1982 - coach Joachim Low remains confident that his side will progress to the knockout stage in Russian Federation. We were not able to impose our usual way of playing, attacking, and there were lots of counter-attacks against us and we were very vulnerable.

"We prepared for the use of Mario Gomez up front". It took Mexico 56 years to win a World Cup opener - their victory coming at the ninth attempt on home soil at Mexico 1986.

South Korea legend Park Ji-sung believes low expectations could help his country in a group that has been blown wide open by Mexico's shock win over Germany. "Our team has experience of losses". "And we're going to prepare for the next match", he said.

At least 3 killed, dozens hurt as quake rocks Japan's Osaka
Two men in their 80s, one from Osaka's Higashiyodogawa Ward, and another from the city of Ibaraki also perished. The Nuclear Regulation Authority said it had detected no problems at any of the region's atomic power plants.

"We will not change our gameplan". "But we have to focus on our first match and then see what happens for the rest of the group". In an end-to-end game, the Mexicans showed nerves of steel, passing from the back even when under pressure and asking Germany all sorts of questions.

With the win, Mexico is now in charge of its own destiny; with another victory in its last two games, it could advance to the knockout stage as the group champion, avoiding a second-round matchup with Brazil.

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.

Joshua Kimmich was among the threats for the Germans, after almost scoring an acrobatic bicycle kick off of a low cross from Jerome Boateng. Their service includes Fox Sports 1, Fox and Telemundo (in most markets) so you can stream the game with English or Spanish commentary.

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

"Tomorrow we will start thinking about [South] Korea because this World Cup is not only about the opening game", Hernandez said.

The finish came just two minutes prior to Toni Kroos' brilliant free kick, which was kept out by an equally-incredible save by El Tri goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa.

Mexico supporters outnumbered Germany fans at the Luzhniki Stadium and made nearly all of the noise, roaring their team forward.

A frenetic finale saw substitute Julian Brandt smack the outside of the post with a thunderous effort from 20 yards.

Mexico won their opening match at a World Cup for the fifth time in their past six tournaments (drawing the other).
