Mexico has beaten FIFA World Cup defending champion in their first opening group game with 1-0, it was never expected from Germany to lose their first game nor from Mexico to play so well and hold the team back while aggressively attacking throughout the game.
Mexico’s Hirving Lozano scored in 35th minute of the first half left Mexico fans into a frenzy, the crowd was loving it. The Germans had 26 shots at the goal out of that only 9 were on the target, since only one shot at the target is needed to score but Mexican’s defended so well.
The team Germany has 67% of possession throughout the game but that didn’t help them convert it into a goal, while Mexico had only 33% possession. Both sides received 2 yellow cards as well.
Germany had 8 corners while Mexico only had 1 corner, overall looking at the statistics Germany had an upper hand but Mexico looked dominant throughout the game, the way they were attacking and reaching their penalty area was enough to take the whole team under immense pressure, and that worked for the team Mexico.
Hot favorite Germany’s next game is with South Korea on Wednesday, June 27, South Korean’s could also give bitter time to Germany since the bad opening pressure would also reflect in that game.
