With the win, Mexico is now in charge of its own destiny; with another victory in its last two games, it could advance to the knockout stage as the group champion, avoiding a second-round matchup with Brazil. "Then they had to hang on in the end".

"Everybody is really unhappy and crestfallen but we have to put this behind us".

"After this score, we can say that this generation of players is here to achieve big things". "We are aware that we need to improve our game", 2014 World Cup victor Toni Kroos said this week.

SIMMSA reported on Twitter that the natural disaster was "artificially" created by "massive jumps" in the city following the goal and although it did not have any apparent impact, SIMMSA said in their statement - "The quake detected in Mexico City originated artificially".

The organisation later added: "The quake detected in Mexico City originated artificially".

"The #sismo detected in Mexico City originated artificially", the organisation posted on social media.

The earth literally moved in quake-prone Mexico City when Hirving "Chucky" Lozano smashed home the game-winning goal in the 35th minute at Moscow's Luzhniki Stadium - a football "earthquake of joy".

Germany had more strikes at goal and perhaps a lot more possession but it was the North American side that had the better of the glaring chances including what looked like a legitimate penalty disallowed.

Another tweeted: "Ozil is playing like the arsenal ozil and not the Germany one".

"In all due respect, in the first half we were the better team". More reliance was on speed and movement on the counterattack. We had practised defending with four midfielders and three players up front and that is nearly how we got the second goal.

"If we go on like this, I'll be anxious", he added. We all ran our hearts out.

Hummels felt Germany did not heed the warning of their final warm-up friendly against Saudi Arabia that ended in a tight 2-1 win, their only success in seven matches since the end of the World Cup qualifying campaign past year.

Germany pressed in the second half but struggled to find the target and Osorio bolstered his lines, pulling off Lozano and, with a quarter-hour left, sending on 39-year-old defender Rafael Marquez to become the third man ever to play in five World Cups.

Coming into the tournament the pressure was on Juan Carlos Osorio's side, who were booed by Mexican fans during their last warm-up game so the result will go some way toward appeasing them. Thus concluded the trend of defending champions losing their opening match of the following World Cup, as Germany followed in the footsteps of France (2002), Italy (2010) and Spain (2014).

Low's side had 26 shots, the most by a side without scoring in a World Cup match since 2006 (Portugal v England, 29 shots in a 0-0 draw).
