Mexico upsets World Cup champion Germany 1-0

Mexico upsets World Cup champion Germany 1-0

This was also the first time a German side had lost their opening game of this tournament since 1982, when West Germany were upset by Algeria.

Back when Brazil played England at Wembley last Autumn, Dani Alves bore the responsibility with great honour, but has had to sit out of this World Cup due to injury.

Germany are attempting to become only the third side in the World Cup's 88-year history to successfully defend their title.

And former Barcelona star Rivaldo, who tasted World Cup glory in 2002 and scored 35 goals in 75 appearances for Brazil, believes anything less than victory is unacceptable.

"There is no doubt that the Germans are very, very efficient".

‘Race 3’ emerges as biggest opener of the year till now
Salman Khan's latest Eid offering, Race 3 , has been well-received with nearly Rs 30 crore on its first day at the box office. Salman replaces Saif Ali Khan in the film and fans are coming in hordes to watch the action-thriller flick.

Germany showed numerous fault lines that had been there for all to see in recent games, and Mexico had obviously been doing their homework as they exploited them again and again and should have scored more goals.

"Tomorrow we have to look forward and put this behind us".

But Osorio's team has been criticized for some of their performances since qualifying, including a 2-0 loss to Denmark in their final warm-up game, as well as a players' party at the end of their World Cup preparations. "If we win, the credit goes to the players and if not, it's my fault.and that's the world of football". "I see it in my team mates' eyes", Ochoa told reporters. "We just lost the ball up front far too easily, and Mexico had always two or three people up front whom we failed to block efficiently". It is the only way we know how to play.

With that in mind, it is set to change hands once again for Brazil's opening group stage game today, with Real Madrid's Marcelo set to lead out the Seleção for their match against Switzerland.
