The last time that Die Nationalmannschaft lost a World Cup's opening game, it was a 2-1 loss to Algeria, a fixture which they had approached with alarming complacence and arrogance. The likes of Mats Hummels, Toni Kroos, Thomas Muller and Sami Khedira should have stepped up to the plate and guided relative competitive worldwide newbies such as Werner and Marvin Plattenhardt through the match and that never happened. We will not become reckless.
"Everybody is really unhappy and crestfallen but we have to put this behind us", said Low. "We have three matches and ample opportunities to correct this result".
It was not a one-off.
Kickoff: Germany vs. Mexico is under way.
He said: "In the first half, we managed to play defensively with a great deal of intelligence and to hurt them on the counter".
Because, despite Mexico tiring after a relentless hour of football, they were utterly incapable of finding a way through.
Indeed, but for their wastefulness in front of goal and on the break, the score could have been more emphatic. "Then they had to hang on in the end". "We did our best today, and we have to continue on the same path". They lacked a "plan B", as they were unable to adapt after the passing lanes were cut off. "We are aware that we need to improve our game", 2014 World Cup victor Toni Kroos said this week.

"A wake-up call is too late, we now have to win two games, otherwise the World Cup is over", Hummels said. That's what I often say internally. "They have talent and they have to show up".
Mexico probably would've been dreading the thought of facing Germany again.
Lozano's lone strike in the first-half remained a difference between the two sides.
"Possibly by massive jumps at Mexico's goal at the World Cup".
"I think it's a milestone for Mexican football", said Mexico coach Juan Carlos Osorio.
"In all due respect, in the first half we were the better team".
Germany dominated the second half proceeding, but they couldn't find the final touch that would lead to a goal.
"I believe we have a relatively young team here". "We played with bravery when it was needed and we defended with all our hearts".
Mexico faced Germany previous year in the FIFA Confederations Cup where they witnessed a 4-1 defeat in Sochi. We have picked out five of the worst performances from defending champions.
This is the third consecutive World Cup in which the reigning champions have failed to win their opening match - Italy drew 1-1 with Paraguay in 2010, while Spain lost 5-1 against the Netherlands in 2014. Supporters could be heard yelling "puto" - the Spanish word for a male prostitute - when Manuel Neuer prepared to take a goal kick in the 24th minute of Sunday's Group F game.
