Mexico will provide a stern test for Germany in opener

But back in Mexico, the aftershocks of celebration will likely continue through the week.

The world champions were beaten 1-0 by Mexico in their opening Group F match, increasing the pressure on them for their games against Sweden on Saturday and South Korea on 27 June.

"I don't quite understand we played the way we did today, because we had already had a shot across our bow (against Saudi Arabia)".

All throughout the World Cup there are numerous commercials aired showing how the entire planet seems to come to a halt once the tournament starts.

Germany must now worry about a similar outcome to their title defence and Sunday's defeat was their first opening day World Cup loss since Algeria claimed a shock win in 1982.

"I believe we have a relatively young team here".

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.
