Brazil, Germany struggles mocked on social media

  • Joachim Loew during a German training session ahead of their clash against Mexico on Sunday

This has to be considered the biggest upset of Russian Federation 2018 so far.

Officials in Mexico said an "artificial quake" was reported in Mexico City that was possibly caused by "massive jumps during the goal from the Mexico national soccer team" on Sunday.

Germany was widely considered to be the main favorite to win this tournament, but maybe their decision to leave out Manchester City attacker and Premier League Young Player of the Year, Leroy Sane, is already hurting their chances to repeat as World Champions.

So beating them was a big deal.

That set the tone for Mexico to torment Germany on the counterattack, with Lozano taking full advantage of right back Joshua Kimmich's tendency to go forward.

Fans had better stop jumping by Wednesday, when the Mexican team plays again, taking on Sweden.

It's 1-0 as Mexico's Hirving Lozano drills one past the German defence.

Coach Joachim Low has, like the Brazilians, transformed the team from 2014 to the extent that the man who scored the World Cup winning goal in Rio, Mario Goetze, is not in the squad.

He passes through two large galleries in the midst of being installed before arriving at a wall hung with several framed prints. It includes around 80 pieces valued at about $35 million and is scheduled to run through July 11, authorities said.

A second-half header from Steven Zuber cancelled out a sensational early goal from Philippe Coutinho as Switzerland and Brazil drew 1-1 in a tight Group E World Cup opener on Sunday.

The first half proved decisive.

In his first competitive start since September 16 because of injury, Neuer was kept busy saving a stinging long shot from Hector Herrera in the 10th, then a header shortly after a free kick.

Gutierrez plays for Alajuelense in Costa Rica's top division.

Waston was an unused substitute while Bolaños replaced Johan Venegas only for the final 30 minutes of the game. Odd notion to be made despite the game only having one goal in it.

It was a strike fit to win any match, and Costa Rica could not find a way back into the game.

There is a silver lining to Monday morning this week, and that means that there will be a handful of matches from Groups F and G tomorrow morning.

Rafael Marquez became just the third player to appear in five World Cups, joining his compatriot Antonio Carbajal (between 1950 and 1966) and Lothar Matthaus (1982 to 1998) of Germany.
