  • World Cup

Lozano, a 22-year-old forward from the Dutch league nicknamed "Chucky", got Mexico going with a deflected shot over the bar in the first minute.

Hirving Lozano scoring the lone goal in Mexico's 1-0 victory over reigning World Cup champion Germany appears to have led to an artificial quake in Mexico City on Sunday. A shock loss as it was, it was not a complete surprise given Germany's sloppy display and the Fifa World Cup defending champion jinx.

With this disappointing start by the Germans, it is yet to be seen if they can match Brazil's long-held record.

Spain came into the 2014 World Cup as world Champions and two-time Euro champions. "We did not cover the spaces, we did not play our usual attacking game, we lost possession too often and so had to cover big distances, so the Mexicans had space to counter-attack", he said.

Their next game is against South Korea on Saturday 23 June, and then against Sweden on Wednesday 27 June.
