Mexico shakes with excitement over Germany World Cup win

The victory may have been in Russian Federation, but the celebration was in high gear at San Jose's Avaya Stadium Sunday when Mexico upset Germany 1-0 in the opening round of soccer's World Cup. Both literally and figuratively.

The celebrations in the victorious country were so wild that football fans caused a literal quake in Mexico City.

The 39-year-old came on in the 74th minute of Mexico's 1-0 win over Germany on Sunday, following in the footsteps of Germany's Lotthar Matthaeus and fellow Mexican Antonio Carbajal.

He was also under fire at the Confederations Cup a year ago for rotating the team, especially after a lackluster win over New Zealand and emphatic defeat against Germany in the semi-finals.

"What we have to do and keep doing is uniting with the fans to abstain from [doing] the chant", said Te Kloese in an interview with ESPN on Monday.

"Sorry. We just had a team meeting that lasted a little longer than planned", Neuer said.

The result leaves Germany three points behind Mexico and Sweden in the table, with their upcoming clash with Sweden on June 23 now a must-win game. "We have a pessimist culture in Mexico, but we have a tough mentality". "We must show what made us so strong in the past".

Toni Kroos crashed a shot against the crossbar for Germany but they were never able to get back into the match as they slid to their first defeat in their opening game of a World Cup since 1982.

It said that "such events are not very big at all". A shabby 2-1 victory against Saudi Arabia was all the defending champions could boast of after defeats to Denmark, Croatia and a draw with Wales.

Die Mannschaft was slammed by the German media for a terrible first-half performance when their defence was brutally ripped apart by Mexico's counter attacks.

Even their own players could see they had fallen into carefully laid trap, with centre back Mats Hummels saying Germany's failure to plug defensive holes had been the subject of "internal" discussions.
