Mexico march on to leave Korea Republic on the brink

Donald Trump Jr. rolls an Easter egg with his daughter Chloe Sophia Trump during Easter celebrations in April

Javier Hernandez scored his 50th global goal, the second for Mexico on the day after Carlos Vela's penalty - the 14th of the tournament already - on 26 minutes after Jang Hyun-soo's handball.

Then, only 25 minutes into Saturday's game, Mexico scored its first goal, taking an early 1-0 lead.

Herrera kicked Ki from behind and made contact with his ankles, causing the South Korean to fall and allowing Mexico to break.

It's the 50th career global goal for Hernandez, known as "Chicharito". Son Heung-min scored a fine curler in added time but it was too late. However, with the history of not making the quinto partido looming over this and every tournament, a win against South Korea would mean Osorio has taken Mexico at least as far as his predecessors.

On the TV-only side, Telemundo averaged 6.6 million viewers for Mexico-South Korea in the two-hour match window and 6.02 million for the full coverage, ranking as the network's second most-watched sporting event ever to last Sunday's Mexico-Germany match.

Nearly 17,000 Mexican fans will visit Rostov-on-Don for the World Cup match between Mexico and South Korea, according to the region's authorities.

Novak Djokovic: 'I'm not one of the favorites in Wimbledon'
Djokovic had an early look at a break point in the second set, but Cilic snuffed it out before facing even more danger at 4-5. I said 50! So it's 19 years (left in his career).

Carlos Vela converted a penalty in the 26th minute to put Mexico ahead 1-0 in the opening 45 minutes at Rostov Arena in Rostov-on-Don, about 1,000 kilometers south of Moscow. Nevertheless, we've still got two games to play and we should prepare well with a positive attitude.

Mexico's breakthrough came when captain Andres Guardado's cross was blocked by a stray arm from Korean defender Jang Hyun-soo, and Vela kept his nerve from the spot, sending goalkeeper Cho Hyeon-woo the wrong way and blasting down the middle. Mexico is 9-2-7 in its last 18 World Cup group games dating back to 1994. With FuboTV, World Cup live streams are available in 4K.

South Korea players protested heavily against the decision of the referee to have given Mexico a penalty, but the referee was not interested. Son Heung-min's later screamer threatened to set up a grandstand finish. Confidence against South Korea is bad.

Given the noise Mexico's fans created and the sea of green shirts visible in the stands of Rostov Arena, it nearly felt as though the match was being played on Mexican soil.

Mexico so far is one of the teams that has a ideal run in the campaign and has conceded just one goa.

Mexico could be in a letdown spot here and although I don't think it loses, a draw bet on perhaps a 1-1 final could be what happens here.
