  • 2018 World Cup match report Germany v Mexico 17 June 2018

The reigning world champions Germany are tournament favourites, but the Mexican fans are confident they've come to beat Die Mannschaft.

Where is FIFA World Cup 2018 Germany vs Mexico match being played?

Defending champions of World Cups haven't had a good time defending their title in the recent past, and Germany's defeat will put them under vast pressure to turn things around in little time. As a result, Mexico are on top of Group F which also includes Sweden and South Korea, who play their first game tomorrow.

And the majority of the 75,000-plus fans went home happy with Hirving Lozano's first-half goal and Guillermo Ochoa's eight saves in goal giving Mexico a 1-0 victory.

Julian Brandt whistled a first-time shot just beyond the post at the other end late on, but Mexico held on for a historic win to leave Germany bottom of group F.

Mexico were also impressive in defense.

It's hard to pinpoint any German player that played well. Perhaps the only player that had an above average game was keeper Manuel Neuer, a relief given his injury issues over the past year.

With key players tiring in the second half, Mexico pulled back and substituted both Lozano and Carlos Vela.

One sheriff’s deputy killed, another critical after shooting outside Kansas courthouse

Loew threw on Marco Reus in place of Sami Khedira and, with 10 minutes to go, switched left-back Marvin Plattenhardt for a second striker, Mario Gomez, to reinforce Timo Werner, who had failed to make much of a mark in the German spearhead.

Given the numbers they were committing forward, Germany were surprisingly toothless in attack. "Our cover was often not good and we were left many times with just Jerome [Boateng] and myself at the back", centre-back Hummels said.

According to German football journalist Raphael Honigstein, Germany manager Joachim Low contemplated dropping Ozil before the match.

They were nearly punished in the last minute when second-half substitute Julian Brandt nearly stole a point for the European giants, but his thunderous volley shaved the left upright. The 29-year-old has started every tournament match under Low since making his worldwide debut in 2009, but his place is no longer guaranteed. Mario Gomez isn't as talented, but he's experienced at this level and will provide a better target for all those crosses.
