Cape Town - Mexico shocked Germany as they beat the world champions in their opening game of the 2018 Soccer World Cup.

Defending champions Germany crashed to the first defeat in their opening game of a World Cup since 1982 as Hirving Lozano's clinical finish earned Mexico a shock 1-0 victory on Sunday.

The highly-rated PSV Eindhoven forward struck the winner on 35 minutes after a blistering counter-attack at the Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow as Mexico beat Germany for just the second time in history.

Thousands of jubilant Mexico supporters partied in the streets of the capital Sunday after their team's shock win - singing, dancing, blaring car horns and cheering El Tri.
