A controversial Chicharito goal gave Mexico a win over South Korea

Mexico coach Juan Carlos Osorio

Mexico will qualify for the last 16 if they win and Germany fail to beat Sweden.

El Tri's form, confidence and collective spirit in Russian Federation surprised everyone in its World Cup opener, and Juan Carlos Osorio's team won't pass up the chance to announce itself as Group F's team to beat when it faces 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.

Let's look at the South Korea vs. Mexico betting lines.

Mexico will finish their group-stage campaign against Sweden on June 27, while South Korea face the world champions Germany on the same day.

Vela nearly turned provider two minutes later with a neat ball into Layun, but the former Watford man lashed his effort over from close range.

Son Heung-min scored a consolation goal for South Korea in injury time, sending a powerful shot past goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa.

The record for penalties at the World Cup stands at 18 in 2002.

Javier Hernandez's second goal against South Korea helped him hit 50th for the country.

South Korea wanted a penalty of their own after the restart when Moon Seon-min's strike clipped Carlos Salcedo's arm, but the referee correctly waved away their appeals. Chicharito's first goal in the competition was the insurance marker his team eventually needed to vanquish South Korea.

- South Korea have lost their last four World Cup matches; their joint-worst losing run at the World Cup, also losing four between 1986 and 1990.

"But as of tomorrow we will be working hard thinking about Sweden and regardless of the results of the matches against Germany and South Korea, we are going to go out there to get the three points".

Mexico so far is one of the teams that has a ideal run in the campaign and has conceded just one goa.
