World Cup match report Korea Republic v Mexico 23 June 2018

South Korea will take on Mexico at 11 a.m. ET on Saturday in their second World Cup Group F game.

A first-half penalty and a second-half strike from Javier Hernandez were enough to see off South Korea, even after their late goal from Son Heung-Min.

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.

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

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. Lozano probed the South Korean defense and laid the ball off to Hernandez, who became the first Mexican worldwide to score 50 goals for his country.

Saturday was no different, except their route to victory in a key World Cup group game at Russian Federation 2018 was anything but simple for the four-time world champions.

Mexico showed their quality on the break again when Miguel Layun fired in a cross that Lozano very almost got on the end of, but they did not have to wait much longer to take the lead.

Hernandez and Carlos Vela scored a goal each at Rostov Arena.

- South Korea has lost its last four World Cup matches, tied for its worst losing run at the World Cup (it also lost four straight between 1986 and 1990).

"I think our players had a game they will not regret", South Korea coach Shin Tae-yong. Looking forward, even if they have nothing to play for in their last game against Germany, you can bet they will give it their all to try and cause upset.

Ki Sung-yueng threatened in the 56th minute with a ferocious drive that Guillermo Ochoa could only gather at the second attempt, before Cho did well two minutes later to keep out a curler by Guardado at full stretch.

Despite their overall boisterousness, Mexico's fans didn't use their usual controversial "eh, puto!" chant during goal kicks taken by the South Korean goalkeeper.

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

South Korean President Moon Jae-in, in Russian Federation on an official visit, attended the match at Rostov Arena.
