Mexico Players Brought To Tears After Famous Win Over Germany

Mexico Players Brought To Tears After Famous Win Over Germany

Eleven men play football for 90 minutes and in the end Germany win, or at least that's how it's supposed to go down. Instead Mexico were left in tears of joy after shocking the world champions.

You almost never expect Germany to lose in any competitive match, never mind when they're world champions and playing their first game as defending World Cup champions in the next tournament.

On Sunday afternoon though they became the third reigning champions in a row to fail to win their opening game four years later as they went down 1-0 to Hirving Lozano's first half goal.

Joachim Low's side were not at the races in the whole game and their Group F rivals really could have been further ahead before the game was over as they kept hitting Germany on the break.

The celebrations when Lozano scored even created an earthquake back in Mexico and the BBC showed fans at the fan park in Berlin absolutely loving it, surrounded by fans of their opposition.

But the players reaction was a different level as Javier Hernandez and others were seen crying when the final whistle blew, and who could blame them:

Germany will now need to get results against both Sweden and South Korea in order to qualify and whilst that is very possible there's nothing stopping Mexico topping the group right now.

That could mean that the reigning champions taking on favourites Brazil in the second round, as long as Tite's team also manage to top their group as is expected.

If those two things happen it could be very good news for England who could avoid Germany and Brazil till the semis as long as they top their group.

Four years ago Spain lost 5-1 to Netherlands in their opening game of the World Cup, and also lost the first game in 2010 when they went on to be winners, and in 2010 Italy could only draw with Paraguay in their opener.

Both sides went on to get knocked out in the Group Stages. Could the third occasion in a row also see Germany leave Russia early?
