Defending champions Germany crashed to the first defeat in their opening game of a World Cup since 1982 as Hirving Lozano's clinical finish earned Mexico a shock 1-0 victory on Sunday.The highly-rated PSV Eindhoven forward struck the victor on 35 minutes after a blistering counter-attack at the Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow as Mexico beat Germany for just the second time in history.
Germany qualified for the tournament with a flawless record of 10 games played, 10 games won. Chicharito played Hirving Lozano into the box on the left channel, and the PSV winger looked to have a clear close-range look until Jerome Boateng came up with a well-timed slide tackle to block the chance.
Germany's Mesut Ozil, tracking back on defense, caught Lozano from behind so the Mexican pulled the ball back with his left foot, spun around Ozil and put a hard-footed right-footed shot in at the near post.
"Our motto was play with the love of winning and not the fear of losing", Osorio said.
Despite recent mixed results in friendlies, this is a strong team that can score plenty of goals and is strong in the back.
