That’s it! The holders have been beaten! It’s the first shock of Russia 2018 and Germany have lost their opening game for the first time since 1982! The Mexico players are in tears. Their fans can’t believe it. The German players can’t believe it. But they got what they deserved. Mexico were splendid.
77 min: Kroos threads a pass into the Mexico area. The ball comes to Draxler, who earns space for a shot with a lovely dummy. Alvarez heroically throws himself in front of the ball to turn it over for a corner. That looked like it was going to be the equaliser. Not that Mexico can relax. Moments later Muller’s bursting in from the right, drawing Ochoa, but he’s denied as well. Mexico will not give this up easily.Germany almost release Werner but the striker’s forced wide. He retrieves it on the left and finds Kroos, whose shot doesn’t have pack enough of a punch to trouble Ochoa. Moments later Hummels sees yellow for a foul on Alvarez. The German centre-back looks resigned.
