Germany: Joachim Low insists Sweden match is must-win after loss

Neuer and Ozil start for Germany with Plattenhardt a surprise inclusion

"We are now under pressure, we have to get six points from the next games", he said. "I'm here with my son and my dad".

"We were warned (in the warm-up games)".

Meanwhile, Eric Perez and his girlfriend Manuela Gravosch found themselves cheering for opposite sides during the match. Mexico's only win in 11 games against them dates back to 1985.

"I'm actually quite sad and quite surprised", she said. Germany had 60 percent of the possession, 25 shots, nine on target, yet couldn't crack El Tri's defense.

Perez couldn't help being swept up in a patriotic feavor.

The goal decided the match - a match Germany didn't expect to lose.

Hirving Lozano struck the only goal of the Group F clash, but Mexico wasted numerous chances on the break to record an even larger margin of victory.

"It's great to start on the right foot when you're playing against the world champions".

Switzerland's well-organized defending held Brazil on Sunday to a 1-1 draw in their World Cup opener, keeping Neymar and other attackers at bay for the most part. Winning the first game of the group stage will put either team that much closer to advancing to the round of 16.

World Cup 2018 is officially underway and Mexico has already pulled off the tournament's first major upset.

Although Germany improved in the second half, they lacked end product and were unable to find an equaliser, condemning them to their first opening-day defeat at the tournament since 1982.

Osorio became more cautious, taking off Vela and Lozano for Raul Jimenez and Edson Alvarez, before introducing Mexico legend Rafa Marquez, who became only the third player to play at five World Cups and the first in history to captain a country in five. This year, Mexico has something to prove.

Timo Werner could have scored when he picked up a ball near the penalty spot, but his shot went straight to Ochoa.

"Mexico were clever, we did better in the second half and Mexico got exhausted". The Germans were being dominated in midfield and every time the ball broke in the centre, the Mexicans swarmed in numbers.

Mexico's top worldwide scorer, Javier Hernandez, may not be an automatic starter these days but his speed will come in handy for Juan Carlos Osorio's team.

Kimmich's charging runs far up the field can be a blessing and a curse for Germany.

His calming influence was crucial, marshaling the space in front of Mexico's back four as wave after wave of German attacks descended on the area.

The reverberations after Lozano's angled strike had nestled into the bottom left-hand corner of Manuel Neuer's goal could be felt all the way from Moscow to Mexico City. Guillermo Ochoa will be heavily tested.
