What sex scandal? Mexico put tumultuous build-up behind them to stun Germany

They beat the defending champions, Germany by a lone goal in their Group F tie at the Luzhniki Stadium on Sunday.

While the fallout was embarrassing in Germany, the reaction was seismic in Mexico, as crazed fans caused an quake celebrating the historic win, according to officials in the Central American country.

Fans spray foam in the air during the celebration of Mexico's 2018 World Cup win over Germany at the Angel of Independence in Mexico City, Sunday, June 17, 2018.

The Germans had more than 60 per cent of it throughout the game but were unable make it count and break down a disciplined four-man defence, which at every opportunity fed Hirving Lozano, Carlos Vela and Hernandez for counter-attack after counter-attack. It is a great opportunity for Mexican football to compete against the world champions and that is what we will try to do.

The victory puts Serbia in a strong early position in Group E ahead of games against Brazil and Switzerland as they look to reach the last 16 for the first time since becoming an independent country.

Even if voters approve the initiative an actual split would still require the approval of the state Legislature and Congress . College students from Northern California who go to school in Los Angeles (and vice versa) would also be affected.

"Our motto was play with the love of winning and not the fear of losing", said a delighted Osorio. Earlier this month, the U.S. slapped Mexico with 25 percent steel tariffs and 10 percent aluminum tariffs, as part of the US-led campaign to pressure its neighbors to revise the North American Free Trade Agreement. "We weren't able to impose our usual way of playing, our attacking and passing was not effective".

"The team has experience dealing with losses. That's why the first half was like it was and Mexico obviously deserved to win it".

"We want to get the three points".

Twice has this fate befallen Argentina, who lost their opening match after both of their trophy wins, in 1982 and 1990, with Italy stunned 3-2 in 1950 by Sweden.
