Mexico beat South Korea 2-1

Mexico coach Juan Carlos Osorio and Javier Hernandez celebrate victory after the match.  Group F - South Korea vs Mexico - Rostov Arena, Rostov-on-Don, Russia - June 23, 2018.

Mexico moved to the brink of the World Cup knockout rounds with a 2-1 win over South Korea in Rostov-on-Don on Saturday.

An early penalty from Carlos Vela put Mexico ahead, and Javier Hernandez's second-half goal secured the Central Americans' second straight victory after stunning reigning champions Germany in their opening game, despite a late consolation from Son Heung-min.

If Germany fail to beat Sweden later on Saturday, Mexico would go through and South Korea will be eliminated.
