Mexico's hero Lozano: Strike against Germany is my best goal

  • Marco Reus Germany 2018

Mexico goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa made a key save in the 39th minute - one of nine in the match - from a Toni Kroos free kick and stressed that the surprise three points for Mexico was historic.

It was a just reward for their positive play before the goal.

Exultant supporters who seemed to outnumber Germans in the crowd of 78,011 sang "Cielito Lindo (Lovely Sweet One)", the well-known lilting refrains of "Ay, ay, ay, ay, canta y no llores", imploring everyone "sing and don't cry". It was a very impressive display against one of the strongest sides in Russian Federation and one of the favourites for the tournament. Jerome Boateng and Mats Hummels had their task cut out and were kept very busy at the back - especially in the first half-hour of the game. "That's why the first half was like it was and Mexico obviously deserved to win it".

Sri Lanka defends cricket team over ball tampering allegation
In its second innings, Sri Lanka lost Kusal Perera to a thick edge behind off Shannon Gabriel two overs before stumps. Chandimal is accused of breaching Level 2.2.9 of the ICC Code of Conduct for "changing the condition of the ball".

Paez described the game as a welcome distraction from Mexico's upcoming July 1 presidential election.

While Ozil is not known for his defending, he undoubtedly could have done better in the lead-up to Lozano's effort. He deserved credit for tracking back, but his tackle was tame. Sometimes the criticism has been unfair, and there's no doubting the player's ability. Osorio is nicknamed the "Professor" and his planning famously extends to copious notes and ring-binders, but delve even deeper into his remarkable journey to football's greatest stage and the suspicion only grows that there will be no more meticulously prepared team in Russian Federation.

Both teams had several chances before the opening goal.

France v Australia 16 June 2018
Mile Jedinek rolled the ball to Lloris' left to draw the Socceroos, deservedly, level. France retook the lead with probably the best move of the match in the 81st minute.

Where is FIFA World Cup 2018 Germany vs Mexico match being played? He flopped to the ground looking for fouls and dropped deeper and deeper to try get on the ball. (Khedira & Werner got 5.9/10 and Ozil got 6.3/10). Now, they had to face Germany's "A" team.

Joachim Low's side were lethargic and sluggish at times and often caught on the break by their Central American opponents - and deservedly found themselves behind at the break to Lozano's low near-post finish. It might be time for Low to consider starting Ilkay Gundogan in his place.

Germany's preparations for the tournament were plagued by poor results and controversy, and their problems were magnified in the Russian capital, leaving their proud record of never being eliminated in the group stage of a World Cup already in danger. Germany are reinforced with young blood with quick feet, tricks and flicks under their belt, the right balance of experienced and world class players in their varsity, fully equipped to become World Champions again.
