Chicharito Scores as Mexico Beat South Korea in 2018 World Cup

Chicharito Scores as Mexico Beat South Korea in 2018 World Cup

The result ended 2-1, giving Mexico two wins from two and putting them in the driving seat for top spot in Group F, and leaving South Korea without a win in two games and their World Cup hopes all but over.

Mexico had their second of the game in the 66th minute, however, when Hernandez collected a super pass from Lozano before finishing low into the bottom corner of the net to register his 50th worldwide goal.

Germany (no points) face Sweden (three) later on Saturday.

Cancún-born Carlos Vela put El Tri in front in the 26th minute of the match with a penalty kick the team was awarded due to a South Korean handball.

This win followed one of the World Cup's most confounding upsets, when Mexico toppled Germany 1-0 in its opener.

Only a Germany win will prevent South Korea being knocked out with a group game remaining.

When is release date? Is it on PS5? Elder Scrolls gameplay
With E3 serving as little more than a taste of Starfield , there is now no further information or a release date for the title. While Todd Howard introduced the game near the end of the conference, a great deal of mystery still surrounds this new title.

But, six minutes before the half-hour mark, El Tricolor were handed the flawless opportunity to open the scoring when opposition defender Jang Hyun-soo needlessly went to the ground in an attempt to block an Andres Guardado cross - only to handle the ball inside the area.

Given the form the team has shown so far this year in Russian Federation, however, fans will no doubt be disappointed if Mexico doesn't at least make it through to an elusive fifth match for the first time since the World Cup was last held in Mexico in 1986.

Korea improved on their opening defeat by Sweden although their main tactic consisted of searching for Son with long balls behind the defensive line. A volley from Vela skimmed the bar minutes later.

The goal proved to be crucial for Mexico, which allowed a late goal to Tottenham star Son Heung-min.

While Mexico hasn't yet technically qualified for the last 16, if Sweden draws with or defeats Germany in the match now under way in Sochi, its spot in the second round will be confirmed. He hit the ball low past goalkeeper Jo Hyeon-woo after collecting a pass from Hirving Lozano. Mexico relied on keeping possession and long-range shots, with a powerful attempt from Andreas Guardado forcing an athletic save from Jo in the second half.

Son opens his account at the 2018 World Cup with a stunner.
