The Cielito Lindo sounded strong in the Luzhniki Stadium in Mexico's opening game at the World Cup. Mexico managed a historic performance and win against Germany - a team they had never defeated before. A sensational team performance featured a fine showing from Miguel Layún.
The Sevillista had a complete game, performing well in both attack and defence for 90 minutes. Layún had a number of chances on goal, also creating with lethal build-up play. His offensive prowess didn't slow down over the match, with the Sevillista fighting tooth and nail to preserve the lead given by Lozano's goal. He stayed dangerous on the counter, even breaking forward on his own on occasion.
Mexico had to suffer but left a clear message on their World Cup intentions. Mexico play again this Saturday against South Korea at 17:00 CET.
