Mexico pip South Korea in Group F tie

Donald Trump Jr. rolls an Easter egg with his daughter Chloe Sophia Trump during Easter celebrations in April

Osorio said at his pre-match conference, streamed on FIFA's website, ahead of Saturday's clash with South Korea in Rostov-On-Don: "This week we made sure that we all understand the responsibility - the responsibility is to play up to the high expectations that everybody has of Mexico now".

Looking to continue the momentum after a massive win over Germany to open the World Cup, Mexico takes on South Korea inside Rostov Arena on Saturday.

The goal was Hernandez's fourth strike at a World Cup and took him level with Luis Hernandez as Mexico's leading scorer in soccer's premier worldwide tournament.

MEXICO: Guillermo Ochoa, Edson Alvarez, Carlos Salcedo, Hector Moreno, Jesus Gallardo, Hector Herrera, Andres Guardado (Rafael Marquez 68'), Miguel Layun, Carlos Vela (Giovani dos Santos 77'), Hirving Lozano (Jesus Corona 71'), Javier Hernandez.

South Korea: Jo Hyeon-woo, Lee Yong, Son Heung-min, Ju Se-jong, Hwang Hee-chan, Kim Min-woo, Ki Sung-yueng, Kim Young-gwon, Jang Hyun-soo, Lee Jae-sung, Moon Seo-min.

South Korea are last in Group F with two losses, but if they beat Germany and Sweden lose to Mexico, the Taeguk Warriors may advance to the round of 16 with Mexico.

South Korea remain without a point following narrow defeats to Sweden and now Mexico.

In the last group F matches, Mexico plays Sweden on Wednesday, 27th June 2018 in Yekaterinburg.

"We have to know why Germany are the No. 1 team in the Federation Internationale de Football Association rankings", Shin told reporters during training at Spartak Stadium in Lomonosov, a suburb of Saint Petersburg, Russia.

South Korean forward Son Heung-min scored a scintillating consolation goal in injury time but it was too little too late for the East Asian nation, which now can not qualify for the first knockout stage of the tournament.

The criticism of Mexico's national team heading into the World Cup was loud and scathing.

"We came to Russian Federation with a lot of criticism but we're working hard and have a lot of talent", he said.

Mexico with one foot in the playoffs, Koreans, it seems, will be the last test in Russian Federation - world Champions.

- South Korea has lost its last four World Cup matches, tied for its worst losing run at the World Cup (it also lost four straight between 1986 and 1990).

Mexico appeared in control but allowed the South Koreans to set up a nervy finale when Son struck a stunning goal from range three minutes into injury time.
