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.

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

Vela's penalty means more spot-kicks have now been awarded in Russian Federation than in the entire 2014 tournament in Brazil. Vela converted from the penalty spot in the 26th minute after Jang Hyun-soo handled the ball while trying to stop a cross from Andres Guardado.

Mexico is now assured of a slot in the round of 16 and now joins hosts Russian Federation and Uruguay from Group A, France of Group B and Croatia in Group and Croatia of Group C. Mexico unsurprisingly overcame Germany in their opening game.

Carlos Vela gave Mexico the lead with that penalty after Korean defender Jang Hyun-soo blocked Andres Guardado's cross with his arm inside the area, before the nation's all-time leading goalscorer Javier Hernandez doubled their lead in the second half with his 50th worldwide goal. Son Heung-min scored a fine curler in added time but it was too late.

If Germany lose to Sweden in the evening's Group F game at the Fisht Stadium in Sochi then Joachim Löw's side will be out.

Mexico carried their momentum from an earthquake-inducing performance on Day One, to their fixture against two-time Asian Cup champs South Korea. A volley from Vela skimmed the bar minutes later.

The 2018 World Cup looks on course to set a new record for the number of penalties awarded.

South Korea will face Germany at the same time in Kazan.
