The 1-0 stunner, with Hirving Lozano scoring the winning goal, has given Mexicans hope that their team might win the tournament for the first time. The proof is in audio clips of his narration of the moment when Lozano placed a flawless kick to secure Mexico's early lead. Even though Germany outshot Mexico 25-12, had 61 percent possession and completed 519 passes to Mexico's 224, El Tri was the most risky team for much of the night.
Mexico is scheduled to train at its complex outside of Moscow on Monday morning in preparation for its match against Korea on June 23 in Rostov.
Paez described the game as a welcome distraction from Mexico's upcoming July 1 presidential election.
Germany lost their opening match at a World Cup for only the second time, also doing so in 1982 against Algeria; they went on to reach the final that year.
The German coach is in the crosshairs after sticking with a lacklustre Mesut Ozil instead of speedy in-form winger Marco Reus, and setting his team up in such a way that allowed the Mexicans to launch countless counter-attacks.
It means Mexico celebrated its goal so hard that it created its own quake.
Germany hadn't been smooth in pre-World Cup friendlies and carried over that form to the first game of the tournament.

They are created to carry between eight and 16 passengers, or a single passenger vehicle, according to the company. This new train would take less than 15 minutes. "Almost like an autonomous, underground, multi-level auto system".
When the clock hit the 35th minute mark, Hirving "Chucky" Lozano made his way into the penalty box and successfully shot the ball past Manuel Neuer.

Although Low admitted that his side need to improve, he also insisted that his tactics will remain the same for Germany's remaining matches. Only two teams prior, Italy in 1938 and Brazil in 1962 had managed to do it. "Teams develop and change, players finish their careers and you must bring in new players which makes it the most hard achievement".
That set the tone for Mexico to torment Germany on the counterattack, with Lozano taking full advantage of right back Joshua Kimmich's tendency to go forward. Let us look at the 3 key battles which will decide today's game. "It's a situation we're not used to at all. Our team has experience of dealing with losses, the next match will be decisive and we have to win it". They hold 4 World Cup titles (1954, 1974, 1990 and 2014) and 3 European Championships (1972, 1980 and 1996). By the final minutes, the tired Mexicans were playing more with their hearts than with their feet.
Germany pressed in the second half but struggled to find the target.
"If we go on like this, I'll be anxious", he added.
Mexico has competed in the Fifa World Cup since the sporting event kicked off in 1930, but the highest they have ever advanced is to the quarter-finals in 1986 and 1970.
