FIFA World Cup 2018, highlights, Rostov, Mexico beat South Korea

Allison Hrabar said she would protest the administration again

Osorio was heavily criticised leading up to the World Cup but the Mexico coach has been somewhat justified in his decisions by his side's victories in Russian Federation.

At the very least, the Taegeuk Warriors can take pride in the fact that they did produce something better than the insipid display in the 1-0 loss to Sweden.

This win followed one of the World Cup's most confounding upsets, when Mexico toppled Germany 1-0 in its opener.

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

Hernandez and Carlos Vela scored a goal each at Rostov Arena.

Mexico had their second of the game in the 66th minute, however, when Hernandez collected a super pass from Lozano before finishing low into the bottom corner of the net to register his 50th worldwide goal.

Many Roma people are Italian citizens who have been in the country for generations, while others come from Eastern Europe. Seibert declined to elaborate ahead of the meeting, which will be preceded by statements from the leaders.

Mexico dominated possession throughout the match, striking first blood in the 26th minute from the penalty area, when Carlos Vela cooly converted his spot kick.

Conditioned by the dry heat that has been a feature of every game at the Rostov Arena, Mexico did not quite have the same thrust and energy as against Germany although they still controlled most of the play and looked far more risky. South Korea lost its opening match. Heung-Min Son scored in the stoppage time to half the deficit but in the end it was no more than a consolation.

This time, the roles were reversed as Hirving Lozano led the charge up the field before feeding a pass to Hernandez, who calmly skipped inside a defender before finishing into the back of the net. The chant earned the country's soccer federation a fine after the previous match.

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

The result leaves Mexico top of Group F and they only need to avoid defeat against Sweden next Wednesday to secure their place in the last 16.

Winning the group with three straight victories will be a good sign, but getting past the next round is the ultimate goal.
