Mexican fans were a bit excited Sunday when their national team beat defending champ Germany 1-0.

Rafael Marquez became just the third player to appear in five World Cups, joining his compatriot Antonio Carbajal (between 1950 and 1966) and Lothar Matthaus (1982 to 1998) of Germany. "We are now under pressure, we have to get six points from the next games", he said.

The historic win was earned through Hirving Lozano's goal.

Both teams were competing for the main spot of Group F, which also includes Sweden and South Korea.

He told The Telegraph: "I thought these issues had been resolved hours ago, but at the last minute an element has been changed in a way that is unacceptable".

Mexico, however, contained and frustrated a star-studded side for long periods, with Hirving Lozano snatching what proved to be the decisive goal 10 minutes from half-time.

For a defending World Cup champion, however, the situation is more common. Lozano's goal in the 35th minute meant Germany trailed for more than 55 minutes on Sunday. "In the first half we played very badly".

In the first game of the day, Aleksandar Kolarov produced a moment of captain's inspiration as he curled home a superb free kick as Serbia got their World Cup Group E campaign up and running with a 1-0 victory over Costa Rica.

"When it came to passing, we were a bit negligent, which is quite unfamiliar when I look at this team".

He adds: "We are so polarized and against each other these days, with the elections and everything else going on, that this brings us back together and makes us feel like things are possible".

In his first competitive start since September 16 because of injury, Neuer was kept busy saving a stinging long shot from Hector Herrera in the 10th, then a header shortly after a free kick.

He puts 29-year-old winger in the same bracket as Brazil team-mate Neymar, the world's most expensive player after his £200m move to Paris St-Germain last year.
