Germany's World Cup defence dealt major blow as Mexico record stunning victory

Marco Reus Germany 2018

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

Kimmich's charging runs far up the field can be a blessing and a curse for Germany.

Sunday saw a historic win for Mexico and a personal milestone for Rafa Marquez, who came on in the 74th minute to replace Andres Guardado. That set the tone for Mexico to torment Germany on the counterattack, with Lozano taking full advantage of right back Joshua Kimmich's tendency to go forward. Mexico were aggressive off the ball, pressing and hounding the Germans, who were often ponderous in possession.

Moreno got a yellow card for timewasting as half-time approached, but Germany were suddenly looking ragged, with passes going astray as they tried to make headway around the Mexico area.

They had a number of chances against Mexico but failed to convert any of them. Ochoa's save to deny Kroos was superb, and he exuded calmness when it mattered as Germany upped the ante in the second half. The restaurant plans to host an event for each one of Mexico's matches.

And when the young PSG talent turned Hummels in with a touch of grace in the 35 minute Germany had been left completely exposed at the back with Neuer at his mercy. Had Mexico been more clinical, than the scoreline could have been much worse.

But that was as close as the four-time world champions would get, as Mexico, to the delight of their fervent following, held on for a famous win and a very rare German setback.

90' - WIDE! An almighty scramble in the Mexico box and it falls to Brandt on the edge of the area. but he fires JUST wide.

Mexico wasted a series of breakaway chances to increase their advantage in the second period.
