Mexico triggers 'artificial' earthquake celebrating win over Germany

Mexican football fans mock Trump at World Cup in Moscow

France in 2002 and Spain in 2014 were the other defending champions to lose their opening matches.

Philippe Coutinho, who was making his World Cup debut, gave Brazil the lead in the 20th minute with a volley that bounced in off the right post.

"Our cover was often not good and we were left many times with just Jerome (Boateng) and myself in the back", said centre back Hummels, one of several Germans who will not want to watch a replay of Hirving Lozano's 35th-minute goal.

Low went on to blame a poor first-half performance.

"In the first half we managed to play defensively with a great deal of intelligence".

"We are now under pressure", Kroos said.

Football fans from sunny Mexico took in the beauty of Moscow's Red Square and chanted in support of their team ahead of the big match against the cup holders, at the Luzhniki stadium on Sunday.

With Ozil offering precious little and Thomas Mueller having a rare off-day, Timo Werner, Reus and Julian Draxler - none of whom are World Cup winners - looked like the men most likely to equalise.

If Germany finish as group runners-up, they could face Brazil in a clash of World Cup titans in the next round - a flawless chance for the Brazilians to revenge the humiliating 7-1 defeat to the Germans on home soil in 2014.

Looking at the footage from the celebrations in Mexico City on Sunday, it's easy to see how the ground could have shook.

Lozano, a 22-year-old forward from the Dutch league nicknamed "Chucky, " got Mexico going with a deflected shot over the bar in the first minute. Coach Joachim Loew wasn't sure why. Germany then dominated but when it broke through the Mexican defense, the shooting was poor.

Time now for a wrap up of the latest action at the 2018 FIFA World Cup.

It may sound odd to suggest but was Germany too offensive early on against Mexico and too willing to play a high line?

If Germany finish as group runners-up, they could face Brazil in a clash of World Cup titans in the next round - a ideal chance for the Brazilians to avenge the humiliating 7-1 defeat to the Germans on home soil in 2014.
