Fans flood National City streets to celebrate Mexico’s World Cup win

Germany

There were more anxious moments in the second half as Mexico's goal came under repeated threats from Germany but the determined Mexican side continued to hold off the reigning champions, who hadn't lost an opening game in a world cup since then-West Germany was beaten by Algeria in 1982.

"Possibly by massive jumps during the goal by Mexico in the World Cup".

"We aspire to win a World Cup this time", said Miguel Paez, a 31-year-old who donned a Mexican wrestling mask in the colors of the national flag as he celebrated on Mexico City's main avenue, Paseo de la Reforma.

Sunday's remarkable win over the world champions, however, has suggested that this Mexico team are psychologically stronger than their predecessors and that may just help them take the extra step.

Germany will be looking to become the first team to win back-to-back World Cup titles since Brazil in 1962 and, although Low accepts it will be hard, he says failure would not be due to a lack of desire.

"We were nervous and we weren't playing the game we wanted to play", Loew said. In the first half of the match we were the superior team.

"Overall we had our chances but did not score. In many previous tournaments we've always won the first match but we have to accept it".

"Of course, that doesn't work in football, not in the third division and especially not at a World Cup".

The Group "F" clash pitting the two sides later in the evening invited them to the "Eclessia of Christ" with some of them telling the priests to intercede for their teams.

Mexico play their next fixture against South Korea on Saturday before taking on Sweden on June 27. In the second we knew well that Germany have an outstanding team. "We have to win".

When their gameplan was shredded, none of Loew's senior players could stem the Mexico attacks or fix the disarray in defence. "If we play out our ideas then we have players who are able to deliver", Loew added. "We are aware that we need to improve our game", 2014 World Cup victor Toni Kroos said this week.

"We have 3 matches in the group phase and we have ample opportunities to correct this result".

Mesut Ozil and Ilkay Gundogan, both of Turkish descent, met Erdogan last month with Reuters reporting that both were criticized by German politicians for doing so.

"Our stability is not good, you have to say - often only Jerome [Boateng] and I were at the back, so they mercilessly attacked us". He outpaced Jerome Boateng and with a less than ideal pass found Lozano, who controlled the ball, cut inside Mesut Ozil, held off a charging Toni Kroos and slotted past Manuel Neuer. But this milestone victory, Mexico's first over Germany in a competitive match - and first in any game since 1985 - gave hope El Tri could one day rise to the top.

"At the end of a World Cup, players retire and you have to integrate new players but in terms of the ambition and the hunger, that is clearly there".
