Defending FIFA World Cup champions, Germany face a tough match to begin Russia 2018 Group F action and take on the tough and well-drilled Mexico outfit.
The two teams have met 11 times in the past, for 5 German wins, 5 draws and a sole Mexican victory. Most recently, Germany won 4-1 over Mexico at the 2017 Confederations Cup in Russia.
Defending FIFA World Cup champions, Germany have an embarrassment of riches with quality players and in Joachim Löw, they have the best coach in international football, who is looking for a second World Cup win.
Löw’s team boasts class and depth across the park and a host of talented youngsters vying for spots in the team. Could potentially suffer from the weight of expectation in a tough group.
Mexico are notoriously predictable in their unpredictability (a bit like of soccer equivalent of the Pakistan cricket team). Mexico regularly beat weaker nations easily but sometimes struggle against the very best. As always with Mexico, it is difficult to know what to expect, depending on ‘which Mexico’ will turn up.
On the upside, there are those Mexicans excelling. Hirving “Chucky” Lozano enjoyed a stellar season with PSV Eindhoven and he was dynamic in Mexico’s thrilling 3-3 draw against top team Belgium.
