World Cup: Mexico vs Sweden – Recap and Highlights

After a dominant start to the 2018 World Cup, Mexico slumped to a 3-0 defeat to Sweden in their final group-stage game. However, with Germany suffering a surprise 2-0 loss to South Korea in the other Group F game, Mexico was still able to advance to the Round of Sixteen.

The game did not start well for Mexico, with Jesús Gallardo earning the fastest yellow card in the history of the World Cup when he was called for an elbow on Ola Toivonen just 13 seconds after kickoff. Then, in the 5th minute, Memo Ochoa was called for handling the ball outside of the box and the keeper then had to come up big to keep out the ensuing free kick from Emil Forsgberg.

World Cup: South Korea vs Mexico – Recap and Highlights

Mexico made it two wins out of two as they beat South Korea 2-1 in their second Group F game. The result puts El Tri on the brink of the quarterfinals, and their spot in the knockout round could be assured later this afternoon depending on the result of the Germany/Sweden game. South Korea, meanwhile, is on the brink of elimination after their second straight loss.

The victory came in front of a largely pro-Mexico crowd in the Rostov Arena, and for once the ubiquitous homophobic goal-kick chant was inaudible as the fans chose instead to chant the names of players, yell “olé”, and sing “Cielito lindo”.

World Cup: Germany vs Mexico – Where to Watch

Group F action gets underway on Sunday, when Germany takes on Mexico in Moscow. The reigning World Cup champions cruised though qualification with a perfect 10-0-0 record, but since then the Germans have won just one of their last six friendlies. Mexico finished first in CONCACAF qualifying with a record of six wins, three draws, and one loss, and are 3-1-2 in their friendlies this year.

In terms of head-to-head results, Germany has dominated, with five wins, five draws, and just one loss, which came back in 1985. In their most recent meeting in the 2017 Confederations Cup semifinals, Germany earned a comprehensive 4-1 victory.
