FIFA probes chants by Mexico fans for homophobia

World Cup trophy

"Whenever you play against world powers, champions and potential champions, it's a little special", Ochoa added.

Mexico shocked Germany 1-0 moments ago in the Group F opener for each team.

- Germany named their oldest starting XI for a World Cup match (27 years, 310 days) since the 2002 final against Brazil (28 years, 166 days).

"We are now under pressure", Kroos said. "In many previous tournaments we've always won the first match but we have to accept it". We will not become reckless. There is no reason to panic.

The event is being considered an "artificial earthquake" created after Hirving Lozano scored the lone, game-winning goal in the 35th minute.

It was not a one-off. For example, wrote Keh: "Osorio deployed Miguel Layún, of Sevilla, as an attack-minded midfielder, tasking him with kick-starting the rapid counterattacks he felt could expose Germany's defense, pushed further forward than Osorio believed was wise". Mexico were relentless at the back, however, and broke downfield on many occasions without success.

"It was an immaculate performance by them". El Tri bypassed the midfield at will, with Germany really missing the services of a number 6.

"I am incredibly happy", said one fan who went to the Angel monument with his girlfriend and son as part of a Father's Day outing. They had a different setup that demanded high-pressing in their own half and break as quickly as possible.

And in the end, they did.

Juan Carlos Osorio's men could have doubled their lead in the 57th minute but poor decision making in the final third let them down. "It goes without saying that the next match will be decisive for us, we have to win it", Loew said.

Low admitted to as much after the game, "In the first half we played very badly".

The hapless bowlers struggled with the "Test match length", especially the spinners who are used to ball flat and quick. Afghanistan will be even more determined as they are the most unsafe among the bunch.


"We have to put this behind us".

How a team can look old and slow, and yet lacking in leadership and experience at the same time, is quite the achievement - and yet Germany managed that here.

Germany needs points from matches against Sweden on Saturday and South Korea on June 27 to avoid elimination. The last time Mexico saw a World Cup quarterfinal was 1986 when it hosted the competition.

Reigning champions Germany were strong favourites heading into the tie against Juan Carlos Osorio's side, but the pendulum swung in Mexico's favour when PSV Eindhoven winger Lozano converted one of their unsafe counter attacks towards the end of the first half.

Germany registered 25 shots to Mexico's 12, but many were from long range and failed to seriously test Ochoa.

"Possibly by massive jumps at Mexico's goal at the World Cup".

SIMMSA, a "seismic monitoring network" in Mexico, tweeted that at least two sensors inside the capital city detected a quake just after 11:30 a.m.

While celebrating fans of our southern neighbor triggered, as my colleague Nancy Tartaglione pointed out earlier today, an artificial natural disaster in Mexico City.

That's why the first half was like it was and Mexico obviously deserved to win it.

"We will not change our game plan".

"We showed we have a bright future and I am very satisfied with what we did. They played with real bravery", he said. We now must win two games, otherwise that is that with the World Cup.
