Mexico cause 'artificial earthquake' after upset win

A 35th minute goal from Hirving Lozano earned El Tri maximum points against the FIFA World Cup holders at the Luzhniki stadium in Moscow, leaving Löw and Co.in a tricky position with Saturday's game against the Swedes to come.

Aleksandar Kolarov scored a spectacular free-kick to give Serbia a deserved victory in their opening World Cup Group E match against Costa Rica.

Mexico would hold on to win the match 1-0, sending them to the top of Group F ahead of matches against Sweden and South Korea.

At that exact time, halfway around the world in Mexico City, the goal caused such fervent celebration that it seems to have caused the ground to shake.

"Everybody is really unhappy and crestfallen but we have to put this behind us", Low said afterwards. "We have to win".

However, the Ticos were not able to take advantage and Serbia was allowed to grow into the game. "We got a draw but this is only the beginning for us".
