Mexico striker Javier "Chicharito" Hernandez shed tears of joy after El Tri's 1-0 upset win against Germany in its opening game of the World Cup, but he won't be celebrating or dwelling on the victory for long.

Tremors were recorded in Mexico City after Hirving Lozano fired the winning goal past German goalkeeper Manuel Neuer in Russian Federation, according to seismic monitoring agency Simmsa.

With Jogi Low's side seen by many as the favourites to leave Russian Federation with the trophy, the pressure is certainly on for the 2014 champions to complete that rarest of feats by retaining the famous cup.

Mexico and Switzerland stir the pot at the World Cup. Three of the past four have failed to make it out of the group stage.

Mexico's Hector Moreno heads a free kick toward Germany's goal from close range, but it bounces to Neuer.

Germany is bidding to become the first team to retain the World Cup title since Brazil in 1962, and until Sunday hadn't lost an opening game since 1982.

Neuer hasn't played for his club, Bayern Munich, since September, only playing the two warm-up games against Austria and Saudi Arabia, but Loew had been insistent that he was his first-choice goalkeeper.

Less than a year ago, Germany and Mexico met in Russian Federation. Moving out from defence after stifling the German attack, Mexico broke with the sort of efficiency and speed we have come to associate with Germany, before a quick one-two on the edge of the box left the ball at Hirving Lozano's feet. We'll always go toe-to-toe'. But when Lozano scored a goal in the 35th minute, the Mexicans jumping in jubilation set off natural disaster detectors.

"We had a couple of shots on goal but somehow it seemed jinxed, the ball wouldn't go in".

Mexico pulled back into a more defensive formation midway through the second half as key players exhausted and had to withstand heavy pressure from Germany.

Coach Juan Carlos Osorio's bold approach - often leaving three attackers up the pitch even when defending set-pieces - paid off, as celebrating fans in Mexico City caused a minor quake.

Kimmich's charging runs far up the field can be a blessing and a curse for Germany.

Kimmich is a risk-taking defender who likes to venture forward but will have to be careful against Mexico as Lozano is a very risky player and who when given space will exploit it to Mexico's advantage. "We decided on Hirving Lozano as he is our fastest player".

Germany had the more possession but it was Mexico who were more creative. Coach Juan Carlos Osorio and the players have stated they are up to the challenge and are not afraid.

The Group F consisting of Germany, Mexico, Sweden and South Korea is a challenging group. Mexico are a defensive team who play counter-attacking football and like to frustrate their opponents.
