    2018 FIFA World Cup

    Group Stage

    Matchday 1 FT Scores: June 17, 2018

    From FIFA.com

    Group E
    Two-time FIFA World Cup Fourth Place finishers as SFR Yugoslavia, Serbia edged 2014 FIFA World Cup Quarterfinalists Costa Rica 1-0 inside Samara's Cosmos Arena in a chippy affair.

    Both teams combined for 33 fouls and four yellow cards.

    AS Roma and Serbian captain defender Aleksandar Kolarov scored the only goal of the match in the 56th minute with a superb free kick that gets past Real Madrid goalkeeper Keylor Navas.

    Costa Rica 0:1 (0:0) Serbia
    BB55's Man of the Match: Aleksandar Kolarov, Serbia

    Meanwhile in Rostov-on-Don, Neymar and five-time FIFA World Cup champions Brazil were held to a 1-1 draw to three-time FIFA World Cup Quarterfinalists Switzerland.

    FC Barcelona attacking midfielder/winger Philippe Coutinho unleashed a laser beam to give the Selecao a 1-0 lead after 20 minutes.

    But the Swiss equalized in the 50th minute as TSG 1899 Hoffenheim right winger Steven Zuber took advantage of poor Brazilian marking with a header off a Xherdan Shaqiri corner.

    Borussia Monchengladbach goalkeeper helped the Swiss get a point with five saves.

    Brazil 1:1 (1:0) Switzerland
    BB55's Man of the Match: Yann Sommer, Switzerland

    And we have our first huge scalp of the 2018 FIFA World Cup!

    Two-time FIFA World Cup Quarterfinalists Mexico stunned the Luzhniki Stadium crowd as they defeat the four-time and reigning and defending FIFA World Cup champions Germany 1-0.

    PSV Eindhoven winger Hirving Lozano scored the only goal of the game in the 35th minute as West Ham United striker Javier 'Chicharito' Hernandez grabbed the assist.

    Joachim Loew's Die Mannschaft had nine shots on target and had seven blocked as the Mexican defense stood firm.

    Standard Liege goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa had a nine-save clean sheet.

    Will Germany bounce back and avoid the Graveyard of Champions route of going out of the group stages? Since the turn of the 21st Century, three of the last four winners (France in 2002, Italy in 2010 and Spain in 2014) were bounced out of the group stages in a FIFA World Cup after winning it all in the previous tournament.

    As for Juan Carlos Osorio, a huge feather in his cap as Mexico national team boss.

    Germany 0:1 (0:1) Mexico
    BB55's Man of the Match: Guillermo Ochoa, Mexico
