Mexio stuns Germany in their opening Match
Football world cup 2018 seems to be a bad place for top teams to be in. Just after South American giant Argentina was held to draw, Current champion Germany was defeated by Mexico in another thriller. Lozano’s 35th minute goal off a counter attack proved to be enough for the Mexicans to defeat the giants. It was their first victory against the current champions after the gap of 33 years. Germany was criticized heavily by the experts for the indifferent form during Warm-ups but not many expected these results in their first match.
Germany’s aging midfield is the main reason for the defeat. Once Mexican scored the goal, they beefed up their defense and ensured to keep Germans at the bay. Germany players wasted many chances in both the half’s. They need to win remaining two matches to have any hope of qualifications to knock out stages.
