Mexico scored an upset victory over 2014 World Cup holders Germany yesterday, with a 1-0 win. Hirving Lozano scored the winning goal early on  in a counter attack but the Germans were unable to come back. quotes Germany’s coach Joachim Löw on the team’s surprising loss:

"In the first half we played very badly. We were not able to impose our usual way of playing attacking and our passing. In the second half we were able to press match but Mexico also pulled back.

"We had a couple of shots on the goal but somehow it seemed jinxed, the ball didn’t go into the net. Of course everyone is unhappy and crestfallen. We have to look forwards, put this behind us. We have to win the next match, it goes without saying. We’re under pressure against Sweden."

Mexico plays next on Saturday, June 23 against Korea Republic and Germany faces off against Sweden the same day. Sweden just beat Korea Republic 1-0 this morning.

Brooks Koepka beat Tommy Fleetwood yesterday to win his second US Open in a row. The last player to win back-to-back at US Opens was Curtis Strange in 1988-89. quotes Koepka on the victory:

“It sounds incredible,” said Koepka of being a multiple U.S. Open champion. “To be honest with you, I probably couldn’t have dreamed of it in my wildest dreams. I’m at a loss for words right now, but it’s really incredible. I couldn’t be happier.”

South Korean player So Yeon Ryu beat Caroline Masson with a two-stroke victory to win the Meijer LPGA Classic yesterday.

Justin Allgaier beat Christopher Bell yesterday to win NASCAR’s Xfinity Series Race in Iowa with 182 of 250 laps. Autoweek quotes Allgaier, who also won the Dover (NYSE:DVD) Xfinity Race last month:

“Incredible. We’re in the middle of cornfields; how could you not enjoy this? … Doing it on Father’s Day, it was really cool having my daughter here.”
