Germany coach rues 'very bad' first half in Mexico loss

Despite facing some sustained late pressure, Mexico held on to inflict a first World Cup defeat on Die Mannschaft since they lost to Spain in the 2010 semi-final.

It is true that few would bet against Germany turning things round in their remaining games against Sweden and South Korea, but all is clearly not right with the four-times winners.

Brazil's squad will be considered failures should they not claim their sixth World Cup title in Russian Federation, according to the legendary Rivaldo. It hadn't lost an opening game since 1982.

Germany are attempting to become only the third side in the World Cup's 88-year history to successfully defend their title, after Italy (1934-1938) and Brazil (1958-1962).

"There is no doubt that the Germans are very, very efficient".

"We decided on (goalscorer) Hirving Lozano as he is our fastest player".

The lawsuit seeks $2.8 million in restitution, additional unspecified penalties and the foundation's dissolution. The attorney general wants the foundation to give its remaining $ 1 million in assets to other charities.

"Not only for me but for all the players, if it is not the most important it is one of the top three matches (of their careers)".

"When it came to passing, we were a bit negligent, which is quite unfamiliar when I look at this team".

But Osorio's team has been criticized for some of their performances since qualifying, including a 2-0 loss to Denmark in their final warm-up game, as well as a players' party at the end of their World Cup preparations.

But experienced goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa shared his coach's optimism, saying his team mates were ready for an upset.

"We simply have to concentrate on our strong points that we have not been able to bring to bear in the last two matches". We got the excitement.

With that in mind, it is set to change hands once again for Brazil's opening group stage game today, with Real Madrid's Marcelo set to lead out the Seleção for their match against Switzerland. "We feel ready and we are convinced we can do something great tomorrow".
