In Mexico City, the celebrations were so wild when Hirving Lozano scored in the first half, they registered on seismographs, effectively causing a small natural disaster. Hirving Lozano's goal was enough to secure the 1-0 win for Mexico, despite the Germans dominating possession and fighting desperately to get back into the match.

Germany have lost just once in 11 matches against Mexico and have beaten them in all five of their meetings at major worldwide tournaments, including a 4-1 drubbing in last year's Confederations Cup.

Mexicans jumping in jubilation on Sunday shook the ground hard enough to set off natural disaster detectors and throngs danced in the streets after their team scored a surprise victory over World Cup defending champion Germany.

The excitement is quite warranted as the team managed to edge out the World Cup's defending champions, earning one of the most significant upset wins in Mexico's history in the World Cup.

Serbia got off to the ideal start in Group E at the 2018 FIFA World Cup on Sunday, as they beat Costa Rica 1-0 thanks to a brilliant free-kick from captain Aleksandar Kolarov.

Both teams were competing for the main spot of Group F, which also includes Sweden and South Korea.

"If we understand that tomorrow is just a normal football match, we have great chances".


Germany were exposed again and again by Mexico's counter-attacking, and if they had been more accurate with their final pass then they would not have had to endure the tense finale as the holders threw everything forward.

"The team has experience dealing with losses".

"Of course we want to win tomorrow".

Philippe Coutinho, who was making his World Cup debut, gave Brazil the lead in the 20th minute with a volley that bounced in off the right post.

Switzerland midfielder Steven Zuber headed in the equalizer in the 50th.

"We need to focus on our strong points, which we haven't been able to do in our last couple of games". Earlier this month, the United States slapped Mexico with 25 percent steel tariffs and 10 percent aluminum tariffs, as part of the US-led campaign to pressure its neighbors to revise the North American Free Trade Agreement.
