Mexico's hero Lozano: Strike against Germany is my best goal

Germany

Mexico stunned reigning champions Germany with a 1-0 win in their World Cup 2018 clash , with Hirving "Chucky" Lozano's goal causing an quake back home.

Current holders, Germany begin defence of their World Cup title this Sunday when they take on Mexico.

PSV Eindhoven's rising star Hirving Lozano scored the only goal of the game and Mexico could have had four or five in the first half.

Low refuted suggestions he should have stuck by the younger crop of players he brought to Russian Federation 12 months ago to win the FIFA Confederations Cup in impressive fashion, including a 4-1 thrashing of Mexico in the semi-finals.

Germany's midfielder Mesut Ozil gestures as he sits on the field during their 2018 World Cup Group F match against Mexico at the Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow on June 17, 2018.

However, their attempt to create history got off the worst possible start as they feel to a shock opening game defeat to Mexico.

Mexico continued to threaten, Miguel Layun narrowly unable to latch onto a through ball, but their goal arrived 10 minutes before the break as Germany were again sliced apart. But two minutes after conceding the goal came Germany's best chance of the evening when Kimmich was brought down a few yards outside the box.

White House Economic Adviser: Canada's Trudeau 'Stabbed Us In The Back'
But unity was torn apart when the U.S. president took exception to Mr Trudeau calling United States policy "insulting". Some 75 per cent of Canadian exports go to the USA , making Canada uniquely vulnerable to a United States trade war.

Fans on Twitter quickly laid into the attacking ace following his laboured display against the lively Mexicans, who went 1-0 ahead in the first-half through Hirving Lozano.

Mexico is hoping to end a streak of six straight World Cups where it has lost in the round of 16, and in a bid to end that streak Osorio added a mental coach to his staff in 2016.

"We were nervous and we weren't playing the game we wanted to play, " Germany coach Joachim Loew said. It will be the first match of the tournament for both the teams.

Attention now turns to England as they prepare for their opening World Cup fixture against Tunisia on Monday.

Mexico still has to play South Korea and Sweden, which Osorio called "a tough nut to crack".

"I was massively impressed by Mexico, give them their due", said former Scotland winger Pat Nevin on BBC Radio 5 live. After all, when Germany pulled off a huge upset at the Winter Olympics by defeating Canada 4-3 in the men's ice hockey semi-finals, the Germans couldn't resist a bit of gloating.
