With talk back home of a "historic victory" and sombrero-wearing supporters brightening and deafening the summer streets of Moscow, Mexico can dream of going better than a consistent record of reaching the last 16 of the last six World Cups and a couple of quarter-finals. Fans swinging the Mexican flag.
This wasn't a wake-up call, but the outcome of letting their opponents come all guns blazing.
Germany nearly responded immediately, as Kimmich won a free-kick at the top of the box that Kroos curled on target only to see Ochoa tip it onto the bar.
The last time that Die Nationalmannschaft lost a World Cup's opening game, it was a 2-1 loss to Algeria, a fixture which they had approached with alarming complacence and arrogance.
The Germans, World Cup winners in Brazil four years ago, were one of the pre-tournament favourites but the defeat means there will be no room for error when they face Sweden and South Korea in their remaining Group F games. Juan Carlo Osorio's team shattered Germany with a succession of quick, counterattacking blows in the first half until their individual parts were scattered all over the grass like a broken pearl necklace.
Germany struggled to handle Mexico's counter-attack, with neither Toni Kroos nor Sami Khedira fully operating as a holding midfielder. 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". Even though Germany outshot Mexico 25-12, had 61 percent possession and completed 519 passes to Mexico's 224, El Tri was the most unsafe team for much of the night. "Just imagine, we beat the world champions!" "Our cover wasn't good, too often it was just Jerome (Boateng) and I at the back". Lozano will also have the responsibility of coming back, helping out his defence and preventing Kimmich from delivering a cross into the penalty area.

Trump's legal team emboldened by inspector general report
On the day of Trump's election, for example, Strzok said he was "depressed", and Page said "OMG THIS IS F***ING TERRIFYING". "No. On the inspector general report that found no political bias in the FBIs final conclusions, he said, The end result was wrong.
Mexican football fans celebrated their team's World Cup win against Germany so exuberantly they set off natural disaster detectors in Mexico City.
The holders' game was riddled with lethargy and sloppiness, deficiencies that exposed the main flaw in Germany's setup: The sheer amount of forward-thinking players on the pitch left no room for mistakes in the buildup; or rather, it left far too much room.
The second half continued in much the same vein, with Mexico wasting chance after chance on the break to put the game to bed, first through Hernandez's wasteful pass and then through Miguel Layun's two wayward strikes.
Maybe it's time for Loew to take a leaf out of the successful 2014 campaign, where he adhered to a more conservative plan.
Clearly, Loew got his tactics wrong and Mexico deserved all the three points along with the plaudits.
Germany fired off 26 shots but only once came close. Is this a special edition in the making?
