Mexico’s lone goal against Germany gave us shades of Danny Williams.

Trickery was perhaps the only way Mexico was getting past German backstop Marc-Andre Ter Stegen on Thursday, a quick restart from El Tri followed by Fabian’s knuckling rip.
The goal briefly made it 3-1, though Germany came back moments later to restore its three-goal margin and insure a trip to Sunday’s final against Chile.
