Joachim Low: 'Germany will not change game plan following Mexico loss'

Germany will definitely try to defend their title but it will be a little tough to cope up with the hopes of the fans as several experienced players have retired since the last World Cup.

Just like for Spain four years ago, there are problems in this championship team and Mexico exploited them. "Then they had to hang on in the end". "Everybody is really unhappy and crestfallen but we have to put this behind us", said Low.

"We will certainly not change our match plan". Germany were defeated in their own game of speed for majority of the game, with Mexico's forwards taking full advantage of a slowing German defence, who also appeared to be wearing thin thanks to a glaring lack of a holding midfielder, a role Sami Khedira has played to perfection for his club, Juventus. From there, they had Germany rattled and fully deserved the goal from Hirving Lozano when it came.

Former England captain Terry Butcher said on 5 live: "It was one of the best games I have seen in my life. At least two sensors inside the City detected it".

With Brazil conceding on 10 goals from the last 12 shots on target they've faced at the World Cup, you wonder if goalkeeper Alisson regrets choosing to represent the Selecao over Iceland.

Elsewhere Manuel Neuer continues his road to recovery after featuring in his first game for eight months against Austria earlier this month, and he makes the final cut for Germany, starting between the sticks in his 77th appearance for the national side.

A Herving Lozano goal in the first half proved priceless for a team that has played four times already with the European giants at the World Cup but was yet to record a victory.

Later, Germany pinned Mexico inside their box, creating one chance after another.

"The phrase was "play with the love of winning and not the fear of losing", an emotional Osorio told reporters.

"In all due respect, in the first half we were the better team". "We suffered a lot to get this result". More movement, decisiveness and precision are badly needed, as well.

"We showed we have a bright future and I am very satisfied with what we did". We all ran our hearts out.

Mats Hummels, Boateng's unwitting co-star in this 2018 version of "Home Alone", made the same points but with added spice, claiming that the lessons of the poor 2-1 friendly versus Saudi Arabia, when Germany's game had suffered similar defects, had not been heeded.

The defending champions' ragged defending displayed in their warm-up games was exposed again as Lozano finished off a sharp counter-attack to score in their World Cup Group F opener on Sunday.

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.
