Mesut Ozil and Manuel Neuer are included in Germany's starting line-up for the first game of their World Cup title defence.
Neuer has not played a competitive fixture since September due to a foot injury, while there was strong speculation Ozil could be dropped.
Reports had suggested Julian Draxler would be preferred to Ozil, but both men start for Germany against Mexico in Moscow.
Joachim Low's side for the Group F clash also includes Timo Werner and Thomas Muller, while Marvin Plattenhardt starts at left-back with Jonas Hector suffering from a cold.
