Mexico odds of winning the 2018 FIFA World Cup were at 40-1 after their shock 1-0 of favorites Germany in the first group stage game.

Germany suddenly finds themselves at 7/1 odds as the oddsmakers appear to believe the German side may not be as good as opposed to Mexico being on par with the early favorites.

In his World Cup debut, Hirving Lozano scored Mexico's winning goal in the 35th minute, picking up Javier Hernandez's pass inside the penalty area and dodging Mesut Ozil before firing past Manuel Neuer from 10 yards.

After Lozano's goal, Mexico goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa pulled off a spectacular save to keep the score level, palming Toni Kroos' shot onto the crossbar.

This was the biggest shock of the 2018 World Cup so far.
