Germany head coach Joachim Low has said he will not change his target for the World Cup after failing to win against Mexico on Sunday.
Mexico pulled off a historic victory in the opening game of 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia Group F, defeating World Cup holders Germany 1-0 in front of a fervent – and full – Luzhniki Stadium.
Low does not share the excitement about a potential Germany v Brazil match in the last-16. He says: “I certainly don’t care about that. The round of 16, I don’t waste any thought on that. It is all about the next match and being better.”
Low is told that a number of former World Cup winners have failed to qualify from the group phase four years later.
