Mexico's goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa dives to make a save during their 2018 World Cup Group F match against Germany at the Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow on June 17, 2018.

Sunday saw a historic win for Mexico and a personal milestone for Rafa Marquez, who came on in the 74th minute to replace Andres Guardado. Lozano cut inside, steadied himself and fired in what turned out to be the victor at Manuel Neuer's near post.

Within 20 minutes, Neuer, the Golden Glove victor four years ago, had been given more chances to remind everyone of this than he could have hoped for, with Hector Herrera and West Ham's Javier Hernandez both testing him.

The PSV forward then cut inside the wafer-thin resistance offered by the back-tracking Mesut Ozil to crash a shot inside Neuer's right post.

And when the young PSG talent turned Hummels in with a touch of grace in the 35 minute Germany had been left completely exposed at the back with Neuer at his mercy.

The half ended 1-0 in favour of Mexico. Defenders should remember the name and the fact he does not use his left.

Any thoughts that Mexico would be overawed by Germany's assortment of superstars continued to be dispelled during a high-octane first half-hour, Hector Moreno heading straight at Neuer from their clearest opening.

But it was an omen of things to come.

Ozil's start follows weeks of debate in Germany over his decision to pose for a photo with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan along with teammate Ilkay Gundogan. Boateng's cross is behind Kimmich, but he opts for the spectacular and sees his overhead kick loop onto the roof of the net. The 28-year old has been a key part in the success of Germany in the last five years, and his energy in midfield will be a crucial asset as the Germans look to get the better of a spirited Mexico team. Julian Brandt, another late substitute, flashed a shot inches away in the 89th minute.
