The FIFA World Cup continued for day four on Sunday with two countries featuring Bianconeri in action.
In one of the top matches of the group stage, Sami Khedira's Germany faced off against Mexico at the Luzhniki Stadium.
Germany struggled to cope with the high pressure of the Mexican side and on 35 minutes Hirving Lozano sent the Mexican contingent into raptures beating Manuel Neuer low to his right to open the scoring.
Germany would have a few chances but could not find the breakthrough against a perfectly-tuned Mexican side falling 1-0 in their opening match.
Khedira played the first 60 minutes of the match before making way for Marco Reus as Germany changed to a more offensive formation.
Meanwhile, Sunday's final match of the day in Rostov-on-Don saw Brazil open their World Cup campaign against Switzerland.
Douglas Costa did not feature in the match as Coutinho opened the scoring with a stunning effort in the 20th minute while Steven Zuber surprisingly equalized in the 50th minute to finish the match at 1-1.
Monday is a unique day of the World Cup group stage as it is the only one that there will not be a team playing that features a Bianconero with Sweden facing South Korea, Belgium playing Panama and England playing Tunisia.
