The victory may have been in Russian Federation, but the celebration was in high gear at San Jose's Avaya Stadium Sunday when Mexico upset Germany 1-0 in the opening round of soccer's World Cup.

Federation Internationale de Football Association said on Sunday it was looking into reports of alleged homophobic chants by Mexico fans during their country's 1-0 World Cup win against Germany at Moscow's Luzhniki stadium.

Elsewhere there were a couple of surprise results as defending champions Germany slipped to defeat to Mexico, and Brazil were held to a 1-1 draw by Switzerland.

Mexico, however, contained and frustrated a star-studded side for long periods, with Hirving Lozano snatching what proved to be the decisive goal 10 minutes from half-time.

The Roma defender scored the only goal of the game with a superb strike from 25 yards.

"It's great to start on the right foot, against the reigning world champions", 22-year-old Lozano said.

Hodeidah is a city of around 600,000 people, and the lone port city under the control of the Shi'ite Houthi rebels. On Wednesday, Saudi-led coalition forces began an assault on the country's largest port, June 13, 2018 .

After getting a lead in the first half, all the once fearsome La Roja had to do was keep the Dutch at bay. "We played without fear and my team-mates were incredible". "In the second half we were better, Mexico got exhausted, but we did not score, although there were enough chances for at least one".

The four-time winners have reached at least the semi-finals at every World Cup since 2002.

Centre-back Hummels said Germany had ignored the warnings from their shaky 2-1 win over Saudi Arabia in their final warm-up game.

"We have to concentrate on our strong suits that we simply haven't been able to produce in the last few matches".

"We were nervous and we weren't playing the game we wanted to play, " Germany coach Joachim Loew said.

Both teams were competing for the main spot of Group F, which also includes Sweden and South Korea.
