The First half of the match was full of free flowing football, with Mexico’s Carlos Vela continuously teasing the German defense from the left and the German’s too had  plenty of shots on target (8) as opposed to Mexico’s (9) out which the Germans were more precise with 5 shots on target and Mexico’s 4.

However, it was Mexico who took the lead through Lozano’s fine 35th-minute goal and they deserved it. In pulsating end-to-end game at the first 45 minutes mark, it was Mexico have been quicker and more positive throughout. The world champs have it all to do in the second half!
