The current football champions - the team of Germany held the first match of Mundial against the national team of Mexico.

Germany - Mexico 0:1
Goal: Lasano, 35
Germany: Neue r- Kimmich, Boateng, Hummels, Plattenhardt (Gomez, 80) - Khedira (Royce, 60), Kroos-Muller, Ozil, Draxler-Werner (Brandt, 87)

Mexico: Ochoa - Salcedo, Ayala, Moreno, Gallardo - Laiyun, Herrera, Guardado (Marquez, 74) - Vela (Alvarez, 58), Hernandez, Lozano (Jimenez, 66)

From the very beginning of the match, the Germans took the ball and pressed the opponent. But the Mexicans gave them the initiative to get space for counterattacks. And their rare attacks against the gates of Neuer were more dangerous than many positional attacks by the Germans.

As a result, in one of the counter-attacks, which began after the loss of the ball by the Germans in the center of the field, the ball reached Lozano, who, after removing the defender, struck to Neuer. The goal slightly changed the game - Germany continued to press on the tight defense of Mexico. But even if it was possible to bring the case to the goal, the Mexican goalkeeper Ochoa saved the team. 

Earlier Croatia’s team beat Nigeria’s team in the first game of FIFA World Cup 2018.
