FIFA World Cup 2018, highlights, Rostov, Mexico beat South Korea

Actor James Wood highlighted the threat on Twitter

The answer has been emphatic.

South Korea is 0-5-2 in its last seven World Cup games dating back to 2010.

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. "It was just noise".

Mexico had defeated defending champions Germany in the opener.

It is Mexico's second successive win in the tournament. "We want to express our regrets over this decision". "We are going to enjoy it", Hernandez said.

Mexico's veteran captain Rafael Marquez replaced Guardado with 20 minutes to play, but nearly gifted South Korea a lifeline when his attempted backpass was collected by Son, but the 39-year-old defender managed to track back just in time. Carlos Vela sent Jo the wrong way for the first goal of the game.

A KFA official claimed that referee Milorad Mazic missed a call before Mexico scored their second goal in their Group F match at Rostov Arena in Rostov-on-Don, Russia, on Saturday.

South Korea's hopes of advancing to the knockout stage would officially end with a loss and a tie or victory by Sweden against Germany. "Our talent and hard work have paid off".

Mexico will be looking for their second victory in as many games against a Korean side who lost their opening match against Sweden courtesy of a VAR penalty.

"Very often, sometimes when you play countries that have less of a footballing history, human beings tend to rest on their laurels a little bit and are too relaxed".

"If you look at the Korean team, we are facing a lot of difficulties".

Son Heung-min pulled one back for South Korea in stoppage time with a spectacular left-foot strike from outside the area. Hueng-Min Son tallied the lone goal for South Korea in the dying moments of the match.

"All of the players became one and until the last minute they really did their utmost".

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.

If the appearance of amorous songs of tribute for Osorio felt remarkable, so, too, did the sudden absence of another chant - the homophobic taunt that Mexico fans have traditionally cried out in unison whenever opponents take goal kicks.

The result leaves Mexico top of Group F and they only need to avoid defeat against Sweden next Wednesday to secure their place in the last 16.

South Korea will face off with GermanyMexico in Kazan at the same time. The team insists it is focused because that's what it came to the World Cup to do - to win every game.

Winning the group with three straight victories will be a good sign, but getting past the next round is the ultimate goal.
