Quake felt as Mexico football fans celebrate win over Germany

Germany and Mexico have played each other three times during World Cup play with the Germans reigning triumphant on all three occasions.

"We started drawing up a plan six months ago, we had to change some parts because of injuries, but basically using players who are very fast down the flanks", he told reporters after the match. Not only were fans in tears, but players and coaches were as well. Find out by following our live matchcast.

Those recent struggles were evident from the outset against a vibrant Mexico, who scarcely gave its more illustrious opponents a chance to settle during a pulsating opening. "We are aware that we need to improve our game", 2014 World Cup victor Toni Kroos said this week.

Mexico can dream of going better than a consistent record of reaching the last 16 of the last six World Cups and perhaps of improving on the quarter-final they last reached in 1986.

"There will always be obstacles to overcome and in the next match we have to be much better".

A bit of complacency and real lack of urgency washed over Brazil as soon as they went ahead, affording Switzerland every opportunity to get back in the game.

The defeat is also Germany's first at a World Cup since the 2010 semi-final against Spain.

In a titanic upset, Mexico secured a 1-0 victory over defending world champion Germany.

Osorio beefed up his defenses to hang on, pulling off Lozano and then, with a quarter of an hour left, sending in 39-year-old Rafael Marquez at the back to become the third man ever to play in five World Cups.

Try as they might, the rest of the game Germany was unable to score. He responded by talking about remaining group games against South Korea and Sweden. Their flawless 10-0 record during qualifiers feels like a distant memory after narrowly beating Saudi Arabia 2-1 a little over a week ago.

"Mexico deserved to win and we made it too easy for them, even though we knew exactly how not to play against them".
