The great performance of Mexico at the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia continued in the second game of the North Americans against South Korea. Mexico won the game against its opponent with 2-1 and in general controlled the whole matchup. The game started with a slight domination of Mexico and the most expected thing happened in the 26th minute when Mexico won a penalty. Carlos Vela turned the penalty into a goal and gave the lead to its nation. After that South Korea tried to come back in the game, but the Mexicans successfully kept the lead.
The second period started off similarly to the first one. South Korea tried to attack with more guys and was almost immediately punished by the amazingly dangerous forwards of Mexico. After a successful counter-attack, Javier Hernandez (66’) scored a second goal which proved the statement that Mexico is one of the most dangerous teams when they play on counter-attacks.
At the end of the game Son Heung-Min (90+3’) scored a beautiful goal from distance and sealed the final score 2-1 to Mexico.
With this score, South Korea still stays with 0 points, while Mexico is with 6 points from 2 games.
