Germany's Joshua Kimmich lashes out at teammates after shambolic defeat against Mexico

Tuesday, 19 Jun, 2018

It is not the first time Mexico's fans have been accused of homophobia by Federation Internationale de Football Association.

"I don't know if its the biggest [victory in Mexico's history], but its one of the biggest for sure".

Germany's Jerome Boateng challenges Mexico's Hector Herrera. Osorio clearly wanted Mexico to break down the left side on the counter through Chucky Lozano, and you could see it from the very first minute onward.

Hummels described the defeat as a "wake-up call too late".

SIMMSA, the "seismic monitoring network" from the Institute of Geological and Atmospheric Research, is reporting that tremors were detected in Mexico City during the country's World Cup match against Germany on Sunday. "We left so many spaces for counterattacks".

Werner caught the eye at last year's Confederations Cup, a tournament Germany won under the captaincy of Draxler, and Low is confident the pair will take on a leading role for Die Mannschaft. Their flawless 10-0 record during qualifiers feels like a distant memory after narrowly beating Saudi Arabia 2-1 a little over a week ago. In addition, two members of the squad have come under the spotlight for being photographed alongside Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdogan. Mesut Ozil an Marco Reus will be up for consideration to be included in the midfield that already includes Real Madrid playmaker Toni Kroos.

Trying to fit so many individual superstars is a problem that has befallen France manager Didier Deschamps, but one would have assumed that Germany manager Jogi Low would have had his team figured out by now.

Yet there were no audible signs of discontent from the sizable German contingent in the crowd.

Germany and Mexico have played each other three times during World Cup play with the Germans reigning triumphant on all three occasions. Up front, Mexico's attack will be lead by Javier "Chicharito" Hernandez. "We had a couple of shots on goal but somehow it seemed jinxed, the ball wouldn't go in and sometimes we didn't keep our cool with our finishing".

In the two friendlies held before the start of the World Cup, Germany were disappointing.

Osorio was certainly living up to his pre-tournament promise. "It's great to start on the right foot when you're playing against the world champions".

For hours after the referee blew the final whistle, revelers chanted passionately, belted out the famous song Cielito Lindo, danced in the streets, drank beer and tequila and dared to dream that just maybe 2018 could be the year that Mexico goes further than it has ever gone before in a world cup.

Die Mannschaft breezed through World Cup qualifying, winning ten out of ten, scoring 43 and conceding just four, and lifted the FIFA Confederations Cup a year ago with a youthful squad, while Low recently penned a contract until 2020.
