Mexico beats defending champion Germany 1-0

Watch Germany vs Mexico Online Free Fox Sports 1 Live Streaming World Cup Soccer Game

Timo Werner insists Germany can still win the World Cup despite losing the opening game of their title defence 1-0 to Mexico.

"We will play good football, attractive football, you will see a great match and feel good about your team", he told reporters before the match.

The architect of the upset was the much-maligned head coach Juan Carlos Osorio. "Just imagine, we beat the world champions!"

Being defending champions can bring it's own brand of pressure.

Germany's preparations for the tournament were plagued by poor results and controversy, and their problems were magnified in the Russian capital, leaving their proud record of never being eliminated in the group stage of a World Cup already in danger. They always had men back.

4-time champions and the current holder of the FIFA World Cup takes on Mexico.

For the most part, it was ponderous and laborious and suited Mexico perfectly. He flopped to the ground looking for fouls and dropped deeper and deeper to try get on the ball.

It wasn't Low's only call to backfire. With Niklas Sule and Antonio Rudiger waiting in the wings, Low is unlikely to remain patient much longer.

Lozano, Javier Hernandez, Carlos Vela formed a three-man frontline and they had the Germans on their toes from the start with their slick passing and running. "He can not go on as he has done in the last 12 years". "It's not a situation we're used to at all".

It will be a stiff test for Mexico, who is looking to break the curse of six-straight tournaments in which it was unable to get out of the Round of 16.

The Mexicans' tactics were clear; they drove at the Germans with pace and threatened once again in the 15th minute.

Mexico found themselves in similar situations, often on the desirable end of a 2-on-1 or a 3-on-2 positions but for the final pass to let them down.

The Europeans were also very lethargic in attack, devoid of ideas and execution.

It was soon evident the first half was following a certain pattern: Germany attacking, Mexico hitting their opponents on the counter-attack.

Neuer hasn't played for his club, Bayern Munich, since September, only playing the two warm-up games against Austria and Saudi Arabia, but Loew had been insistent that he was his first-choice goalkeeper.

He added: "In the second half we pressed more but Mexico also dropped back".

Mexico missed several chances in the first 45 minutes and, while German substitutes Mario Gomez and Julian Brandt went close late on, they could not recover from their slow start. They lacked a "plan B", as they were unable to adapt after the passing lanes were cut off.

Mexico is scheduled to train at its complex outside of Moscow on Monday morning in preparation for its match against Korea on June 23 in Rostov.
