"Despite whatever he does in this World Cup, I don't know if he's going to keep the job", said Mexican goalkeeper and Fox analyst Moises Munoz. The Mexicans were pitted to face the Germans in their opening Group "E" game.

Germany responded through long-range efforts from Toni Kroos and Werner around 20-minute mark.

That defeat in Sochi was one that hurt their ego.

Mexico coach Juan Carlos Osorio dedicated the win to the fans. The Selecao side of 1970 is regarded as one of the greatest ever football teams, but despite boasting names such as Rivelino and Jairzinho in their XI four years later, there was no way through the Yugoslavia back line. That defeat to Germany followed a 7-0 mauling at the hands of Chile a year earlier at the Copa America Centenario. Fubo TV also offers three days of auto recording and 30 hours of Cloud DVR service in case you're busy at work for the Germany Mexico soccer game.

However, on Sunday at the Luzhnki Stadium, it was pretty evident that Osorio and Mexico had learnt from those humblings. "We have to get six points from the next games", Kroos said.

Sami Khedira and Hector Moreno fall after attempting to head the ball. They always had men back. More movement, decisiveness and precision are badly needed, as well.

"I'm pretty sure that the [Brazil] manager told [the players], "look what happened to Germany, look what happened to Argentina"... the players are telling each other, 'make sure that doesn't happen to us, '" Mourinho said.

And it's a victory that may have changed the course of the tournament for both teams.

Mexico continued to threaten, Miguel Layun narrowly unable to latch onto a through ball, but their goal arrived 10 minutes before the break as Germany were again sliced apart.

Carlos Vela, Lozano and Javier Hernandez had all been wasteful from good positions before Lozano gave Mexico a deserved lead in the 34th minute, combining beautifully with Hernandez before cutting onto his right foot and firing past Manuel Neuer into the bottom corner. With Kimmich up ahead, it was Ozil who found himself tasked to stop Lozano.

Ozil, 29, endured an inconsistent season for Arsenal, but such is his brilliance at global level, that the playmaker's position in the national side has never really been under threat.

"It's pretty simple: we played like we did against Saudi Arabia, but this time it was against a better opponent", fumed the Bayern Munich player, who was booked for a foul in the dying stages. The Germans were also visibly slower when faced with frequent runs from Hernandez and Lozano, finding themselves backtracking all too often, and not being able to put bodies behind and in front of Neuer in goal.

Germany nearly responded immediately, as Kimmich won a free-kick at the top of the box that Kroos curled on target only to see Ochoa tip it onto the bar.
