KXIP vs KKR Live Score

"We will not suffer that fate, we will make it to the next round", he said. The proof is in audio clips of his narration of the moment when Lozano placed a ideal kick to secure Mexico's early lead.

Mexico pulled back into a more defensive formation midway through the second half as key players exhausted and had to withstand heavy pressure from Germany.

Germany face Sweden in their next match on June 23 in Sochi before concluding their group campaign 4 days later in Kazan against South Korea. Mexico fans, however were confident early in the game.

Petkovic kept his promise to frustrate Brazil, which was seeking redemption from its disastrous 2014 World Cup exit with a 7-1 semifinal defeat on home soil by Germany.

El Tri topped CONCACAF qualifying for the first time since 1998 and the feel good factor continued last week as they were awarded the right to co-host the 2026 World Cup alongside the USA and Canada.

Interestingly, he mentioned PSV Eindhoven Hirving Lozano as the man to watch for the Mexicans, noting: "Lozano is our star, I have prayed that he scores today, if we win he will certainly matter".

The 2018 World Cup is not yet a week old but has already provided a handful of surprise results - mostly involving the tournament's top teams.

Lozano, on the counter, was the hero on the day in attack, beating Manuel Neuer.

"It's pretty simple: we played like we did against Saudi Arabia, but this time it was against a better opponent", fumed the Bayern Munich player, who was booked for a foul in the dying stages.

"(Osorio) deserves this win the most", said midfielder Rafael Marquez, who is playing at his fifth World Cup.

What followed in Moscow was a strong show of confidence by Mexico and a morale-boosting (and fully deserved) 1-0 victory, while a beaten Germany side have some big questions to answer.

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. Only two teams prior, Italy in 1938 and Brazil in 1962 had managed to do it. "Teams develop and change, players finish their careers and you must bring in new players which makes it the most hard achievement". We did not want this situation. Furthermore, it had taken him until the 60th minute to replace the huffing and puffing Khedira for Marco Reus and move Mesut Ozil into a deeper role, which finally brought a bit more composure and structure. But the North Americans had other ideas as they pulled off a massive upset with a 1-0 win against the current world champions.

"I'm more angry than shocked", asserted team manager Oliver Bierhoff in reference to a "lack of pace, a lack of solutions" in the final third.

Germany nearly responded immediately, as Kimmich won a free-kick at the top of the box that Kroos curled on target only to see Ochoa tip it onto the bar.
