Mexico defeats South Korea 2-1, leads Group F in World Cup


Osorio also remembered the bitter criticism he was subjected to before the World Cup. And all of them should be afraid of Mexico.

But despite seeing Mexico follow a 1-0 defeat of world champions Germany with another narrow win, Osorio was unhappy with the refereeing from Serbian official Milorad Mazic, who booked four Korea players.

The goal was Hernandez's fourth at a World Cup, taking him to the same level as Luis Hernandez as Mexico's most prolific goal scorer at the premier global soccer tournament. "We have humility but we beat Germany and South Korea and now we have to play against Sweden and stay cool and calm", goalscorer Hernandez said.

Hernandez's 50th goal for Mexico proved to be the match-winner.

Mexico will now have its eyes on Sweden and Germany. He hit the ball low past goalkeeper Jo Hyeon-woo after collecting a pass from Hirving Lozano.

South Korea received four yellow cards. "We've received a lot of praise, we the team, and we've tried to remain focused".

The South Koreans, who have lost their opening two matches, kept Ochoa under pressure throughout the match with Son often out-sprinting the Mexican defense.
