Mexico beat Germany in first match of Group F

Mexico scores early on in the first-half to secure a 1-0 win against Germany in the first match of Group F.

Hirving Lozano scored the goal for Mexico with his right foot and beat Manuel Neuer down to his right post in the 35th minute of the match, which came from a fantastic counter-attack.

The Mexican team took advantage of the pressure it created on the German side in the first half of the game and relied heavily on counter-attacks in the second half.

The Germans tried to turn the game around in the second half up until the last minute, as Neuer joined the attack for the late corner in the last minutes of added time.

This match resulted in historic records being broken with the German team losing its first game at a World Cup as defending champions, and Rafael Marquez stepping on the field with a fifth World Cup appearance and captaining Mexico in four of them.

Mexico defended firmly throughout the second half to claim their victory, as they go to lead Group F with three points, and move forward with confidence to face Sweden and Korea in the upcoming matches.
