According to USA Today, fans celebrating Hirving Lozano's lone goal to help Mexico defeat defending World Cup champion Germany 1-0 on Sunday may have caused a literal quake in Mexico City.

Painted German flags on cheeks - along with plenty of German soccer jerseys and pints of beer in their hands - fans of Germany could only stare at the television screens in disbelief. "We are now under pressure, we have to get six points from the next games", he said. After the stupendous performance by the team, a video is going viral where a Mexican fan bent down to his knee and proposed to his girlfriend.

The 28-year-old, playing in his second World Cup, suggested that Mexico fans make more use of a chant that invokes the country's name, as well as another based on a well-known song in his homeland, "Cielito Lindo".

Brazil failed to win their opening game for the first time since 1978, but still haven't lost an opening match since 1930.

"They will be more focused later".

While winning the first match of the Fifa World Cup can send fans into a delirium, doing so against reigning world champions is sure to send fans into a frenzy. Now it is up to us to react. "We will show that in the next match against Sweden".

It is a habit drilled into citizens from a young age, with students expected to clean their school classrooms and hallways. With their surprise win against Colombia on Tuesday, the Japanese soccer team won their first World Cup game since 2010.

"It's important we say things straight into our face".

"We started drawing up a plan six months ago, we had to change some parts because of injuries, but basically using players who are very fast down the flanks", he told reporters after the match.

"Mexico deserved the game because we made it too easy for them, knowing we should not have allowed that to happen". "We chose Hirving, who is our fastest player".

"What I didn't like was that they played defensively from very early on".

After the defeat, Germany's next fixture is on June 23, against Sweden, before they finish the group fixtures against South Korea on June 27.

"Every player must ask himself, 'am I ready to give everything?", said Germany's shot-stopper.
