Less than a year ago, Germany and Mexico met in Russia. That night at the Fischt Stadium in Sochi, the Germans ran out 4-1 winners to reach the final of the Confederations Cup — a tournament they later won. Germany coach Joachim Loew had taken a ‘B’ side to the tournament, which was considered a dress rehearsal for ...
