Joshua Kimmich has questioned Germany's mentality after their shock 1-0 defeat to Mexico at the World Cup on Sunday. "But the fact that we won renews our hope".

Julian Draxler and Matthias Ginter played in both tournaments and Marco Reus missed both with injuries. I am convinced we can do it.

"What happened today was an quake of joy for us - just imagine, we beat the world champions!" said Laura Villegas, a 45-year-old merchant who downed her beer with tequila in one gulp. "We have a pessimist culture in Mexico, but we have a tough mentality". Federation Internationale de Football Association issued 51 penalties for homophobic incidents during qualifying games, but Mexico's fans were persistent offenders, leading the team to be fined during every home qualifying game before the 2018 contest and 11 times overall in qualification matches.

At the other end of the pitch, . a stunning performance by Mexico's goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa, . who made nine saves to help his team to a valuable and historic three points. It was missing (against Mexico).

"We had already talked about things like giving the ball away and lack of cover".

"The team has experience dealing with losses".

"There are not two separate camps". If FIFA and/or the [Mexican federation] can plausibly say, 'Look, we're trying to stop it, ' then they can quiet critics without imposing some form of sanction that has real teeth.

It was the only goal Mexico would need. "That's why the first half was like it was and Mexico obviously deserved to win it".

It's hard not to believe Neuer's positivity, especially because the captain could have fallen back on a host of template statements about what teams do when they're up against it. The game against Saudi Arabia was actually a wake-up call. One of the reasons for the early departure is to get used to the different conditions as temperatures along the Black Sea have risen to 30 degrees Celsius, 6 degrees warmer than in Vatutinki near Moscow. In Sochi - a welcome change of scenery according to Neuer the team can show how good they really are.
