Mexico Proves It's No Fluke at World Cup

Mexico Proves It's No Fluke at World Cup

Korea saw an improvement from their opening defeat to Sweden although their main tactic consisted of searching for Son Heung-min with long balls behind the defensive line. With a win today against Germany, Sweden will tie Mexico for top spot in Group F, depending on goal differential.

Edson Alvarez was brought in as centre back for Mexico's World Cup Group F game against South Korea on Saturday in the only change made by coach Jose Luis Osorio after the Latin Americans defeated defending champions Germany.

Carlos Vela smashed them into the lead from the penalty spot in the 26th minute at Rostov Arena, which had been taken over by Mexico's sea of fanatical supporters.

Mexico were awarded a penalty when Jang Hyun-soo handled a cross from Andres Guardado after 23 minutes.

They have now gone eight World Cup matches without a win - going back to the group stages of 2010 - and face the daunting prospect of Germany in their final group game.

Vela nearly turned provider two minutes later with a neat ball into Layun, but the former Watford man lashed his effort over from close range.

South Korea's slim hopes of qualification hang on Germany beating Sweden and then losing to the Koreans themselves.

Son Heung-min scored a consolation goal for South Korea in injury time, sending a powerful shot past goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa. Chicharito's first goal in the competition was the insurance marker his team eventually needed to vanquish South Korea.

Not to be outdone, Cho was at his best soon after, South Korea's goalkeeper lunging to his right to tip Hernandez's goal-bound shot wide.

The criticism of Mexico's national team heading into the World Cup was loud and scathing.

- South Korea have conceded a goal via a penalty in both of their World Cup games so far in 2018 - in their previous 29 World Cup games combined, they only conceded one penalty goal.
