"It did!?" said the Mexico manager.

It wouldn't be a surprise, then, to see another faltering display in Volgograd as a youthful Three Lions side dip their toes into the World Cup waters.

On both those occasions, they had tried to seize control; snatch the possession and put their stamp on the game only to leave spaces for their opponents to exploit and punish them.

He said: "Of course, everybody is really unhappy and crestfallen, but tomorrow we have to look forward".

"The team has experience dealing with losses".

SIMMSA reported on Twitter that the natural disaster was "artificially" created by "massive jumps" in the city following the goal and although it did not have any apparent impact, SIMMSA said in their statement - "The quake detected in Mexico City originated artificially. But Germany had no plan B, no clear chances and no defensive intelligence". Before the tournament, conventional wisdom said that the top four teams in this World Cup were better than the top four in recent World Cups.

Attention now turns to England as they prepare for their opening World Cup fixture against Tunisia on Monday. The only time it advanced further was in 1970 and 1986, when Mexico hosted and lost in the quarterfinals - the latter to Germany on penalty kicks.

The moment of jubilation in Mexico City was the result of pent-up frustration after the country's club came close on a number of occasions prior to Lozano's goal.

The agency said at least two sensors detected the natural disaster inside Mexico City at 11.32 local time.

A statement released by SIMMSA said: "The quake detected in Mexico City originated artificially".

"We played with bravery when it was needed and defended with all our hearts, I think we need to give the credit where it's due and that's to the players". More reliance was on speed and movement on the counterattack.

"We showed we have a bright future and I am very satisfied with what we did".

It is this, the idea of the German national team which we have grown accustomed to over the years, that made their defeat to Mexico in the World Cup Group F opener so shocking.

Germany came on strong in the second half but could not breach the Mexican defence, with the legendary Rafael Marquez coming off the bench to do his part - he's now played in five World Cups.

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. That night at the Fischt Stadium in Sochi, the Germans ran out 4-1 winners to reach the final of the Confederations Cup - a tournament they later won.

With Jogi Low's side seen by many as the favourites to leave Russian Federation with the trophy, the pressure is certainly on for the 2014 champions to complete that rarest of feats by retaining the famous cup.
