Mexicans hail win over Germany in World Cup

The United States Geological Survey appears to also have recorded activity in the region near Mexico City on Sunday morning, but it's unclear if it was related to Mexico's goal.

The world champions were stunned in their opening game in Russian Federation, beaten 1-0 by Mexico to start their Group F campaign.

Heading into the match, Germany were strong favourites, but after a traditionally strong start from Die Mannschaft, it was Mexico who took the lead with a goal from Hirving Lozano.

"A wake-up call is too late, we now have to win two games, otherwise the World Cup is over", Hummels said. But neither the US Geological Survey nor Mexico's National Seismological Service reported an quake in Mexico City that day. "We are now under pressure, we have to get six points from the next games", he said.

Seeing pictures of excited fans crowding into Mexico City's Zocalo and elsewhere to view the broadcast, it's easy to see how Mexico beating the defending champs could be a literal seismic shift.

Lozano's goal in the 35th minute meant Germany trailed for more than 55 minutes on Sunday.

While winning the first match of the Fifa World Cup can send fans into a delirium, doing so against reigning world champions is sure to send fans into a frenzy.

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 past year.

Germany now play South Korea and Sweden in their remaining group games but face an uphill task to reach the knock-out stages.

"We talked about what we must improve".

"I don't know if we've sent a message to other teams, but internally we've spread a clear message that that we can, and are completely capable of competing with anyone", defender Miguel Layun said after training Monday.

"One thing I will not be doing is think about the round of 16".
