One fan was convinced Mexico beat Germany 1-0 because her grandmother blessed each of their players in turn as they sang their national anthem.
With the camera panning across the Mexican team singing, the grandma uses her hand to make the sign of the cross on each face that appears onscreen.
Mexico emerged victorious against the reigning World Cup champions thanks to a first-half goal from PSV Eindhoven forward Hirving Lozano.
