Underdogs Mexico are ready to cause a major upset and beat Germany for the first time in its world cup opener.
Coach Juan Carlos Osorio says his team is well prepared and will make the Central Americans realize the World Cup clash is just another football game.
“If we are going to play in a neutral stadium, with everything that is around the World Cup then I think Mexico can win against Germany.”
Euro sports reports, Germany have lost just once in 11 matches against Mexico and have beaten them in all five of their meetings at major international tournaments, including a 4-1 drubbing in last year’s Confederations Cup.
The Germans are also renowned for delivering when it matters and have a stellar tournament record that includes at least a semi-final spot in every World Cup since 2002.
Germany takes on Mexico at 3am tomorrow.
Meanwhile, Costa Rica plays Serbia at 12 midnight while Brazil will meet Switzerland at 6am tomorrow.
