Hirving Lozano’s goal against Germany causes ‘earthquake’ in Mexico City

World Cup: Germany vs Mexico, Live Scorecard, Goals and Latest Match Stats Updates Online

The measure of a team is how they respond to adversity, and it is what followed that will leave Germany's management team most concern and give genuine hope to rivals such as France, Spain, Brazil and - yes - even England.

The Germans, branded an "embarrassment" in their home press, should still qualify, with a final group game against South Korea. Possibly by massive jumping during the national team's goal at the World Cup.

"We won't fall apart", said Joachim Low after presiding over his first-ever opening defeat at a big competition. "Now it is about survival at the World Cup".

It means Mexico celebrated its goal so hard that it created its own quake.

Meanwhile, Germany, the only team to have made it made it to the second round of every World Cup since 1954, needs at least a tie against Sweden on Saturday to keep that streak from ending.

Lozano's lone strike in the first-half remained a difference between the two sides.

Elated fans waved Mexican flags and donned traditional "sombrero" hats at the iconic Angel of Independence monument in downtown Mexico City as they sang the country's unofficial soccer anthem, "Cielito Lindo", or "Pretty Little Sky", a popular folksong.

Low will need to think hard about going back to 2014's slightly more conservative setup, with three midfielders, to make his side less vulnerable while they're trying to get their passing game going again.

Proceeding to the last eight or beyond has become a Sisyphean task for the Mexicans who have gone out in the round of 16 at the last six World Cups and have not reached the quarter-finals since they hosted the competition in 1986.

"When it came to passing, we were a bit negligent, which is quite unfamiliar when I look at this team".

Coach Juan Carlos Osorio's bold approach - often leaving three attackers up the pitch even when defending set-pieces - paid off, as celebrating fans in Mexico City caused a minor quake.

Sweden and South Korea face each other on Monday, and the victor of that tie will surely now feel as though they can make a very strong argument for progression to the last 16. Eighteen of its shots came in the second half, when it enjoyed a 2-to-1 advantage in time of possession. Whenever they have won the World Cup, they have always brought a transformational change in football.

"In all due respect, in the first half we were the better team".

"I believe with God everything is possible".

Hummels felt Germany did not heed the warning of their final warm-up friendly against Saudi Arabia that ended in a tight 2-1 win, their only success in seven matches since the end of the World Cup qualifying campaign previous year. "We played with bravery when it was needed, and we also defended with all our hearts".

"A wake-up call is too late, we now have to win two games, otherwise the World Cup is over", Hummels said.
