Mexico are in pole position for a round-16 spot from Group F following a 2-1 win over South Korea in their second group game in Rostov-on-Don on Saturday.

Carlos Vela and Javier Hernandez scored in either halves of the game to give the El Tri the advantage in an open Group F.

Tottenham Hotspurs forward, Son Heun Min struck a late stunner in added time, but it wasn’t enough to save the Asians’ campaign.

Having stunned Germany in their first game, the latest win means Mexico have now won their first two group games in a World Cup for the second time in their history.

 

The El Tri now have full control of the group and would require at least a point in their last group game to claim the top spot, depending on the result of the other game between Germany and Sweden.

Mexico will play Sweden in their last group game on Wednesday while Germany who are on a mission to rise from their blip will play South Korea who are already knocked out.
