MOSCOW: The day 4 of the mega football tournament - FIFA World Cup 2018 - is here. Sunday will witness three matches - Costa Rica vs Serbia (Group E), Germany vs Mexico (Group F) and Brazil vs Switzerland (Group E).
Underdogs Mexico are ready to cause a major upset and beat Germany for the first time in a tournament on Sunday, provided the central Americans realise the World Cup clash is just another football game, coach Juan Carlos Osorio said.
Brimming with confidence ahead of their World Cup Group F opener in Moscow's Luzhniki stadium, Osorio conceded the four-times world champions were tournament favourites but said his team was in with a chance.
