Mexico is the fifth team to reach six points this World Cup, and just the second non-European club to do it (joining Uruguay). The answer has been emphatic.

Mexico has won 2-1 the match against South Korea in the match in the southern Russian city of Rostov-on-Don, securing the spot in the playoff stage of the tournament.

South Korea coach Shin Tae-yong said "hot weather could be another factor in this match".

Earlier, NAIJ.com had reported how defending champions Germany got their title defence off to a losing start after bowing to Mexico in their opening Group F encounter at the Luzhniki Stadium.

"I think that your question invites me to say we are our own enemies, however I don't think so", Osorio said when asked who Mexico's biggest enemy was now that so many people have jumped aboard the bandwagon. "The mentally we've had coming here and what we've said nearly every time we've been here is that we came to do something different", he said at a news conference Friday. Carlos Vela sent Jo the wrong way for the first goal of the game. Carlos Vela calmly struck the ensuing penalty kick to the left of goalkeeper Jo Hyeon-woo, sending the crowd into hysterics and huge quantities of beer into the air above the stands.

As an NBA scout told NBA.com's David Aldridge: "If they use him the right way, it's going to be real hard for him to fail". Doncic and Harden both have the ability to decelerate and change pace at the highest levels.

Scoring against Germany and assisting Hernandez against South Korea, Lozano because the first Mexican player since 1998 (Ricardo Pelaez) to score or assist in his first two World Cup games. "Our talent and hard work have paid off".

In Mexico's first game, a 1-0 win against Germany, Osorio orchestrated a counterpunching masterpiece of a game plan, helping the Mexicans sidestep and stun their vaunted opponents. However, it was too little too late for the Koreans who could not find the equalizer. "We've received a lot of praise, we the team, and we've tried to remain focused". Looking forward, even if they have nothing to play for in their last game against Germany, you can bet they will give it their all to try and cause upset.

Ki Sung-yueng threatened in the 56th minute with a ferocious drive that Guillermo Ochoa could only gather at the second attempt, before Cho did well two minutes later to keep out a curler by Guardado at full stretch. A volley from Vela skimmed the bar minutes later. Postgame fines from FIFA for use of the slur have essentially become an everyday part of the Mexican federation's match-day expenditures.

The result from the second Group F match on Saturday, between Germany and Sweden in Sochi, will also have a bearing on South Korea's World Cup fate.
