Mexico played 'with love of winning' in remarkable defeat of Germany - Osorio

Germany remains just as strong as ever, winning all 10 of its matches in World Cup qualifying while taking the Confederations Cup previous year, defeating Mexico 4-1 along the way.

Attention now turns to England as they prepare for their opening World Cup fixture against Tunisia on Monday.

"It's pretty simple: we played like we did against Saudi Arabia, but this time it was against a better opponent", fumed the Bayern Munich player, who was booked for a foul in the dying stages.

The match starts at 17:00 on 17 June 2018. "With all respect, I think in the first half of the match that we were the superior team".

By beating Germany, Mexico put itself in position to possible play Serbia, Switzerland or Costa Rica in the second round and avoid a matchup with Brazil.

Mexico faced Germany a year ago in the FIFA Confederations Cup where they witnessed a 4-1 defeat in Sochi. Germany are the Confederations Cup champions, and had a fantastic season in the World Cup Qualifiers.

But despite the loss - the first for a German team in a World Cup opener since 1982 - coach Joachim Low remains confident that his side will progress to the knockout stage in Russian Federation. That set the tone for Mexico to torment Germany on the counterattack, with Lozano taking full advantage of right back Joshua Kimmich's tendency to go forward.

He then patted Khachanov, a friend from their junior days, sympathetically on the chest before pumping his arms in celebration. The 98th-ranked Putintseva was trying to become the first player from Kazakhstan to advance to a Grand Slam semifinal.

Mexico qualified for the showpiece in Russian Federation after finishing top of the CONCACAF World Cup qualifying table.

"The phrase was "play with the love of winning and not the fear of losing", an emotional Osorio told reporters.

"Everyone is very unhappy but tomorrow we have to look forward". They hadn't lost an opening game since the then-West Germany succumbed 2-1 to Algeria in 1982. Mexico has been bounced from the round of 16 at each of the last six World Cups. Not only were fans in tears, but players and coaches were as well.

One desperate last attack had Neuer come up for a corner, but a towering header from the veteran Marquez and subsequent claim from Ochoa allowed Mexico to close out an unforgettable triumph.

"We need to focus on our strong points, which we haven't been able to do in our last couple of games".
