Both the teams will start their FIFA World Cup journey from Moscow this year as they will come face to face at the Luzhniki Stadium tonight.
Germany looks to become the first team since Brazil in 1962 to defend its World Cup crown. He outpaced Jerome Boateng and with a less than flawless pass found Lozano, who controlled the ball, cut inside Mesut Ozil, held off a charging Toni Kroos and slotted past Manuel Neuer. Left-back Jesus Gallardo, a player who has never played at anywhere near the level of Germany's players, stood up to the challenge as well but it would possibly be unfair to single too numerous players.
Germany needs points from matches against Sweden on Saturday and South Korea on June 27 to avoid elimination.

The highly-rated PSV Eindhoven forward struck the victor on 35 minutes after a blistering counter-attack at the Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow as Mexico beat Germany for just the second time in history.
Germany, on the other hand, took too long to get going and lacked the poise the rest of the world has grown accustomed to seeing on this stage.
An quake was detected in Mexico City after El Tri opened the scoring in their 2018 FIFA World Cup match against Germany on Sunday. The 29-year-old has started every tournament match under Low since making his global debut in 2009, but his place is no longer guaranteed. It took Mexico 56 years to win a World Cup opener - their victory coming at the ninth attempt on home soil at Mexico 1986.
