On day 4, defending FIFA World Cup champion Germany suffered a shock defeat at the hands of Mexico in the Group F opener at Moscow’s Luzhniki Stadium as the struggle of the favourites to put their stamp on the tournament continued.

Despite enjoying a 61 percent possession and launching attack after attack, the FIFA World Cup 2014 winners failed to find the back of the Mexican net who had taken the lead in the 34th minute through a Hirving Lozano stunner. Germany had 25 shots on the goal with nine on target compared to 12 by Mexico out of which just four were on target. But Lozano’s strike made all the difference.
Mexican goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa was one of the heroes as he kept on denying the German attackers. Germany have two more games left to bring their title defence back on track.
