Javier Hernandez had a controversial penalty claim turned down against German, but was that the right call!
Javier Hernandez thought that he had a penalty, as Germany lost.
The second shock of this World Cup has happened.
After Argentina’s draw to Iceland, Germany has lost to Mexico.
Mexico dominated at the start of the match and scored the goal, Germany was better for the reminder of the match, but just couldn’t score the goal.
In the end, Mexico won 0-1 and got to a great start of this World Cup, unlike Germany.
The most controversial situation happened to a Mexican player.

Javier “Chicharito” Hernandez got controversially fouled inside the German penalty area.
Referee waved play on, but he didn’t use VAR. Replays showed that Chicharito could have easily got a penalty kick for the foul on him.
A very weird decision from the referee, as Mexico could have won this 0-2.
Still, this was a very important win by Mexico, while Germany will need a win against Sweden, or they will face group exit.
