  • Mexico's Hectro Herrera center trains with his teammates during a training session of Mexico at the 2018 soccer World Cup in Moscow Russia Wednesday

Marquez played his first World Cup in 2002 at the age of 23, and has played all four of Mexico's games in every campaign, all of which ended in the round of 16.

"There is no division". "We are now under pressure, we have to get six points from the next games", he said. "We were straight-shooting".

Marquez denies the allegations that he and his associates held assets for Hernandez on behalf of his drug cartels - but has remained a part of the Mexico World Cup squad for Russian Federation despite some consternation in his home country.

After the video went viral, Gonzales told Telemundo that she will continue to make the sign of the cross on each player as they compete in the World Cup.

Defeat by Sweden could mean the earliest exit the four-time champions since the 1938 World Cup and 32-year-old Bayern Munich keeper Neuer was addressing a news conference that was delayed by nearly an hour because of ongoing team discussions.

He did, however, admit that following the defeat to Mexico, several issues were addressed within the team.

"We have actually been saying that for the last 10, 15 years, I would say".

Heading into the match, Germany were strong favourites, but after a traditionally strong start from Die Mannschaft, it was Mexico who took the lead with a goal from Hirving Lozano.

This was the first time Germany have lost an opening game at a World Cup finals since going down 2-1 to Algeria when Spain hosted the 1982 tournament. "I can't say why. I can not say why it was missing but from our body language and readiness of the past, it was not on the pitch".

"I dedicate this win to my parents.and to God who gave me the patience to endure so much here".

A fan of Mexico cheers prior to the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia group F match between Germany and Mexico at Luzhniki Stadium on June 17, 2018 in Moscow, Russia.
