Mexico defeats South Korea, close to 16

  • Actor James Wood highlighted the threat on Twitter

Javier Hernandez scored his 50th worldwide goal, the second for Mexico on the day after Carlos Vela's penalty - the 14th of the tournament already - on 26 minutes after Jang Hyun-soo's handball.

Expectedly, Tottenham star Son Heung-min was their most risky outlet and threatened the Mexico goal a couple of times in the opening exchanges.

Marco Reus equalized in the 48th minute, meeting a low cross from Timo Werner, and despite having Jerome Boateng sent off in the 82nd minute, Germany kept going and Kroos earned them a famous win.

Mexico have arrived in Rostov on the eve of their Group F clash with South Korea, knowing a win will secure passage to the knockout rounds, after their upset win over Germany.

They are on an eight-match winless run at World Cup finals but coach Shin Tae-yong was pleased with the endeavour of his team.

South Korea were guilty of committing a lot of early fouls, Hernandez heading wide just after 10 minutes as Mexico looked to take advantage of one of the resulting free-kicks.

The hapless Koreans, who have no points after two games and have only won one of their last 11 World Cup fixtures, will be eliminated if Sweden draw or win against Germany.

Lukaku, Hazard star as Belgium rout Tunisia
That goal served to halt Belgium's early dominance, but they did grab a third with nearly the last kick of the half. England (three points) face Panama (none) on Sunday in the same group.

But Korea had chances and the momentum of the game turned on another penalty, awarded against Jang Hyun Soo for a blatant handball and converted by Vela.

Telemundo Deportes' complete Saturday coverage averaged 3.1 million television viewers ranking as the most-watched Saturday daytime in Telemundo history, topping by 72% the prior record set during last Saturday's World Cup coverage. In the dying moments, South Korea had a couple of shots blocked by Mexican defenders crowding the box.

Only a Germany win will prevent South Korea being knocked out with a group game remaining.

He also backed star man Son Heung-min to improve on his showing from the opener, saying: "We played defensively in our first match, and so he didn't play to his fullest ability".

No team at the 2018 World Cup has made more fast breaks than Mexico, with the Central American side leading the way with nine spread across their two games.

Mexico so far is one of the teams that has a flawless run in the campaign and has conceded just one goa.

Mexico were quick out of the traps in the opening half, pressing forward and passing well around the Korean team.
