Mexico Edge Closer To World Cup Last 16

2018 World Cup Report: Korea Republic v Mexico 23 June 2018

By SL International - Jun 23, 2018 07:01 PM

2018 World Cup 

Result: Korea Republic 1-2 Mexico

Date: 23 June 2018

Venue: Rostov Arena

Mexico edged closer to a spot in the last 16 at the 2018 World Cup after beating South Korea 2-1 in their penultimate Group F match on Saturday evening.

Javier Hernandez nearly opened the scoring for Mexico in the 10th minute after leaping highest to meet a corner in the air but his effort sailed wide.

El Tri were building slowly from the back after a quarter of an hour and but were unable to penetrate the Korea defence.

The concession for the Taeguk Warriors came in the 25th minute via a penalty after a handball inside the box. Carlos Vela took the responsibility from the spot and sent the Mexicans ahead, 0-1.

Mexico were dominating proceedings after 35 minutes and looked comfortable at the back. However, Heung-Min Son’s pace up front for the Asian side was causing difficulties for the Central Americans.

Other than that, Juan Carlos Osorio’s charges managed to control the match and took a 1-0 lead into the break.

Shin Taeyong’s men were still struggling to settle and were second best in the opening stages of the second half.

Hernandez eventually doubled the lead for El Tri in the 65th minute, turning a defender inside out before slotting home after a counter attack.

Korea Republic were forceful going forward as the half went on, but their finishing left a lot to be desired.

However, Son netted a stunner for South Korea in stoppage time to give the Asian side some hope, but it was too little, too late as the Mexicans won 2-1.

The win moves Mexico to the top of the group, and they will advance to the next round if Sweden avoid defeat against Germany.
