World Cup 2018 South Korea vs Mexico Pressure On Son Heung Min To Save South Korea

Javier Hernandez hit his 50th global goal as Mexico edged closer to progression from World Cup Group F with a 2-1 victory over South Korea.

Mexico were awarded a penalty in the 24th minute when Jang Hyun-soo handled a cross from Andres Guardado, however, and Carlos Vela converted from the spot to send his team 1-0 ahead in the 26th minute.

Here's how to watch South Korea vs. Mexico online.

Meanwhile, South Korea were condemned to an early exit after losing their opening two matches despite Heung-Min Son scoring a spectacular consolation strike in stoppage time.

- Javier Hernandez is only the third player to score at three different World Cups for Mexico (2010, 2014 and 2018) after Cuauhtemoc Blanco (1998, 2002 and 2010) and Rafael Marquez (2006, 2010 and 2014).

The South Koreans managed successive counterattacks by targeting striker Son Heung-min but caused few problems for Mexican goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa. South Korea lost its opening match.

However, Mane helped set up Senegal's opening goal and combined well with Torino winger Mbaye Niang to pressure Poland's defence. Lewandowski sprang into life five minutes after halftime as he won possession, burst clear and was up-ended by Salif Sané.

A win gave Mexico six points in Group F - and it's looking likely that Mexico can emerge as the victor of the group and avoid a Round of 16 showdown with Brazil. Defender Edson Alvarez replaced Hugo Ayala at the back.

South Korea will be eliminated if Sweden wins or draws. El Tri took down the defending World Cup champions 1-0 to take charge of Group F. Hirving Lozano scored in the 35th minute, and then the Mexicans held on as Germany gave all their best punches. Chicharito bagged his 50th goal in worldwide play on a counter-attack led by breakout star Hirving Lozano - but Mexico was only able to score because referee Milorad Mazic allowed play to continue after Hector Herrera fouled Ki Sung-yueng to gain possession.

The 20-year-old Alvarez, one of Mexico's hottest prospects, replaces Hugo Ayala.

Mexico lead Group F on six points after two games, having backed up their shock victory against Germany with another display to suggest they can go deep in this tournament.

Vela was made to wait by goalkeeper Jo Hyeon-woo, who played for time by swigging his water and chatting to his team-mates, but there was no mistake.
