Adjust Comment Print

For Mexico, the win was its first in three tries over a reigning champion.

Lozano, a 22-year-old forward from the Dutch league nicknamed "Chucky, " got Mexico going with a deflected shot over the bar in the first minute.

"It's definitely the best goal I've ever scored in my entire life". The four-time world champion was expected to be a solid contender for its fifth overall victory, but couldn't find a path to the win against the stalwart Mexican defense. "We broke out in fast attacks, and we had numerous real chances to open the scoring before we actually did". The central Americans, who have reached the last 16 at each of the last six World Cups, will need to be quick on the break if they are to catch their opponents off guard, as other teams have successfully done recently, including the Saudis.

"We will not suffer that fate, we will make it to the next round", he said.

The fire burning 10 miles north of Durango had consumed 42 square miles as of Thursday morning and was 15 percent contained. A fire reported Tuesday in a part of Colorado known for its ski resorts has forced the evacuation of more than 1,300 homes.

He said: "In the first half, we managed to play defensively with a great deal of intelligence and to hurt them on the counter". The only time the ball was in midfield was when it was passing through to either end, with the teams combined for 18 shots.

Lozano took a pass from Javier Hernandez and got around Oezil and had a clear path to the net in the 35th minute. He came up with another clean stop on Kroos, who fired a left-footed rocket from 20-yards after Mexico had turned the ball over in its own third. A star-studded German line-up, coached by their World Cup-winning manager Joachim Low, were taken aback by Mexico's pace right from the starting whistle, and failed to match their rivals on the pitch. As an interesting fact, Germany has a marvelous average of 3.5 goals per match in their World Cup openers since last 36 years where they last defeated by Algeria. "It's not a situation we're used to at all".
