FIFA WC 2018: Mexico Beat South Korea To Close On Last 16

Moscow (June 23, 2018): Javier Hernandez scored his 50th international goal to help Mexico take a big step towards the last 16 of the World Cup with an impressive win over South Korea, despite Son Heung-min’s stunning late strike.

Having upset defending champions Germany in their opening game in Group F, Mexico proved again they will be a test for any side should they reach the knockout stages.

They took the lead through Carlos Vela’s penalty – the 14th of the tournament already – on 26 minutes after Jang Hyun-Soo’s handball.Although they dominated possession against lacklustre opponents, Mexico also displayed their thrilling counter-attacking game with their second goal, when West Ham striker Hernandez added a neat finish to Hirving Lozano’s surging run.As South Korea’s sole threat, it was fitting that Tottenham striker Son gave his side fleeting hope in added time with a sublime, curling strike from 25 yards.

Mexico will reach the last 16 if Sweden beat Germany in Saturday’s final game.
