Mexico shock Germany with stunning counter-attack goal

1:25                                            Joshua Kimmich knows Mexico have the quality to hurt Germany after facing them in last year's Confederations Cup

Their positive approach was rewarded with the only goal of the game after 35 minutes when Hirving Lozano finished off a flowing counter-attacking move with a crisp drive.

It was a just reward for their positive play before the goal.

Juan Carlos Osorio's side had other ideas, however, holding their own against the favourites' fearsome but slowing midfield and finding space at the back and seeking to end 33 years without a win against Germany.

Mexico's aggressive approach unsettled the entire German team, particularly their central defensive pair - Jerome Boateng and Mats Hummels - and their number 10.

Here's how viewers reacted to Ozil's questionable defending in the first-half...

Osorio said his Mexico team needed "one big game" after losing 2-0 to Denmark last Saturday amid waves of criticism of the team back home. He deserved credit for tracking back, but his tackle was tame.

Melbourne park murder sparks safety audit
Before Mr Todd's arrest, Victorian Police urged people to be careful while walking through the Carlton-North area. It was a good thing that 24 blokes on each side played this morning and we could come over and pay our respects.

But despite nearly constant pressure, they were largely kept at long range, and their poor finishing rarely threatened Ochoa as Mexico held out for only their second victory against the Germans in 12 attempts. A quality ball in from Kimmich on the other side and Germany are awarded a corner. Not a start Germany were looking for. Subs: Reus 5, Gomez 6, Brandt N/A.

Breaking out after stopping a German attack, Mexico absolutely cut through the German team with - at first - a one-two, before Lozano was set free.

Ozil had sparked controversy on the eve of the tournament by posing for photographs with Turkey President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, and the Arsenal midfielder missed Germany's final warm-up with a knee injury.

And after a run of 25 starts for Germany in all major competitions - the only player now on such a run - he will continue that remarkable record in the starting XI, despite concerns that he would be benched. It wouldn't be a surprise to see Ozil drop to the bench and the time has probably come for him to be dropped.

"I think it's definitely the best goal I've ever scored in my life, we all dream of playing in the World Cup".
