Germany World Cup games are now finals, says Neuer

Germany World Cup games are now finals, says Neuer

Both literally and figuratively.

Mexicans jumping in jubilation on Sunday shook the ground hard enough to set off quake detectors and throngs danced in the streets after their team scored a surprise victory over World Cup defending champion Germany.

Mexican midfielder Marco Fabian has urged El Tri fans in Russian Federation to end their goalkeeper chant and suggested an alternative, after the anti-gay slur was heard during Mexico's 1-0 win over Germany last Sunday.

"We decided a plan a couple of months ago and confirmed the plan once we saw Germany against Spain, Brazil and their final preparation game against Saudi Arabia in Leverkusen, a game that I watched live".

"A minor setback is not a bad thing to bring the team closer together", Lahm said.

"Complaining about what happened doesn't change anything, we all know that", said Neuer. While Germany has won the tournament four times, Mexico had never advanced past the quarterfinals before.

Germany, meanwhile, had 26 shots without causing Guillermo Ochoa too many problems, although the Mexico goalkeeper made nine saves in keeping a memorable clean sheet.

Dennis te Kloese, the FMF's director of national teams said fans could also be ejected from stadiums if it continues.

It said that "such events are not very big at all".

"The first half against Mexico was a wake-up call.

Our team has experience of dealing with losses, the next match will be decisive and we have to win it".

They face South Korea in their second group game on Saturday before their concluding group match against Sweden next week.

However, they're clearly different from the kinds of earthquakes we usually talk about - those of natural origin - because they're not caused by tectonic or volcanic activity, and don't have a clear epicentre, since the agitation occurs at several points.

Even their own players could see they had fallen into carefully laid trap, with centre back Mats Hummels saying Germany's failure to plug defensive holes had been the subject of "internal" discussions.
