#WC2018: Hernandez nets as Mexico sees off South Korea

Guillermo Ochoa Mexico

He set up Hirving Lozano's victor against Germany and bagged himself a goal in the 2-1 win over South Korea to put Mexico on the brink of the knockout stage. The Koreans have zero.

German coach Joachim Low had given the team a rest on Sunday after their tense game, which saw Die Mannschaft on the edge of elimination from the tournament until Real Madrid's Toni Kroos scored the winning goal in extra time.

It's admittedly hard to look at Germany's performances against Mexico and Sweden and make a case for a resounding win here, but I was impressed by their second-half display against the Swedes.

The Mexicans have repeatedly failed to go beyond the last 16 in recent decades, but the West Ham United striker nicknamed Chicharito wants this time to be different. Then it's goal scored in games against each other, and that's where South Korea falls out, with only one goal scored in common games to two for the other two teams.

The result in Sochi means Group F is wide open going into the final round of games on Wednesday.

"I am a footballer at the highest level, being criticized is something we live with".

It remains to be seen whether Ozil will be restored to the starting line-up for Germany for their final group game against South Korea on Wednesday.

And given Germany's struggles in this early stage of the tournament, a loss to South Korea is not out of the question with the Asian giants boasting a risky attacking lineup.

In the pre-game press conference, Germany superstars Marco Reus and Timo Werner stressed that they need to be wary of South Korea's pace in the attacking department.

It also prevented South Korea being eliminated, although they need to beat Germany and for Mexico to beat Sweden to stand a chance of qualification.

Germany are priced at a rather prohibitive [1.2] for the win, but you can boost that price to [1.88] if you back them -2.0 on the Asian Handicap.

The Swedish soccer team rallied around midfielder Jimmy Durmaz after he was subjected to a torrent of racist abuse and death threats following his mistake in Sweden's defeat to Germany in the FIFA World Cup on Saturday.

Tottenham Hotspur forward Son Heung-min is thought to be a critical player for South Korea if they hope to pull off the upset against the reigning world champions.

South Korea have lost their last four World Cup matches in a row, their joint-worst run - they also lost four in a row between 1986 and 1990.
