• Mexico pulls an upset beating Germany 1 - 0.
• This was Germany's first loss opening game since 1982, when West Germany lost against Algeria.
• Just how big was this upset? Well, this was only Mexico's second win against Germany. Their last win against them was in June 1985.
• Mexico coach Juan Carlos Osorio: “In the first half, we were the better team. In the second half, they tried to attack more. We prepared yesterday for their use of Mario Gomez up front. We practiced defending with four midfielders and three players up front and that is almost how we got the second goal. We showed we have a bright future and I am very satisfied with what we did. We played with bravery when it was needed and also defended with all of our hearts.”
• The celebration in Mexico was so big that according to the Institute of Geological and Atmospheric Research, fan reaction immediately after Mexico’s goal against Germany caused an earthquake in Mexico City 🇲🇽 ! No puedo.
• We don't deserve it, huh, Diego? Ajajajajajajajajajajajajajajajajajajajaj
