It was a game Mexico wasn’t supposed to win. Germany, the defending World Cup champion, isn’t the kind of team to lose their opening game. Many believed that Mexico had drawn the short straw in Group F.
But then, something of a miracle. Around the 35th minute, winger Hirving Lozano curved one in. It was the only goal Mexico would need.
The home country went wild. So wild, in fact, that there was a human-induced earthquake.
That’s gotta be the epitome of GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL!
¡No es broma!
