Italian goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon was called up to five World Cups but played in only four of them, with Gianluca Pagliuca starting for the national side in 1998.

This will likely be Neuer's last chance to represent his country at a World Cup, if not a major worldwide tournament in general, and the Bayern Munich star will be hoping he gets the nod ahead of Ter Stegen by manager Joachim Löw.

Brazil took the lead in the first half thanks to a long-range curling effort by Barcelona striker Philippe Coutinho in the 20th minute.

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.

"There will always be obstacles to overcome and in the next match we have to be much better".

With key players tiring in the second half, Mexico pulled back and substituted both Lozano and Carlos Vela.

He played in the afternoon wind tunnel Thursday, the spitting morning rain Friday and then the baked-out moonscape late Saturday. Berger's postround news conference started with a question that began like this: "There's a lot of birdies out there today".

"We were nervous and we weren't playing the game we wanted to play", Loew said. Two of them lost their opening matches while the Italians had to settle for a draw. Kimmich's absence meant Ozil was left trying to stop Lozano for Mexico's opening goal.

"The #sismo detected in Mexico City originated artificially".

Mexico become just the first team since Italy to have kept a clean sheet against Germany on more than one occasion.

Nonetheless, Low had no doubt that the team would not fall apart and would respond to the pressure, with Toni Kroos admitting the team would have to put things right ahead of their next match, a June 23 clash with Sweden.

"We want to get the three points".
