South Korea and Mexico meet in the second round of Group F fixtures with both sides in contrasting forms. While Mexico pulled off a magical win over Germany, South Korea were convincingly defeated by Sweden and looked out of sorts for large parts of the game. A win for Mexico guarantees them a shot at a Round of 16 fixture while it will signal the end of South Korea’s campaign in Russia. It will be interesting to see how the Asian nation lifts itself up for this massive game in the group of death. Below are the relevant details of South Korea vs Mexico live telecast, free live streaming online details in addition to start-time, venue details and their team standings in 2018 FIFA World Cup Group F points table.
Hirving Lozano, the Mexican youngster who was picked by many to deliver at the cup, has had a bright start to his campaign in Russia. He played a pivotal role in several counter-attacks set off by Mexican that helped them in defeating the Die Mannschaft. The link play between Carlos Vela, Hirving Lozano and Chicharito was hitting top gear constantly and looks ominous for South Korea. Although they allowed 25 shots and nine on goal from the Germans, their defense looked in control for large parts.
South Korea has scored once in the last four matches and just did not look like scoring against Sweden which is a cause of greater concern to their management. Son Heung-Min looked subdued in the opening fixture and cannot afford to have another quiet game. The Tottenham forward is his country’s star attraction and has the game in him to trouble any opposition. Midfielder Jung Woo-young has stated his team is drawing inspiration from other Asian nation who have done well in the first round of the tournament.
This is a game of high pressure from the South Korean perspective and whether they have the character to withstand it only time can tell. They must not play to Mexico’s strength and invite counter. Let the Mexicans come up with new ideas to topple them. For Mexico, a routine display at work should see them qualify to the next round.
