Mexico Proves It's No Fluke at World Cup

Donald Trump Jr.'s four-year-old daughter Chloe was threatened

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. The answer has been emphatic.

Edson Alvarez was brought in as centre back for Mexico's World Cup Group F game against South Korea on Saturday in the only change made by coach Jose Luis Osorio after the Latin Americans defeated defending champions Germany.

"There are no words to express all this we are going through", Hernandez said. "It was just noise".

Germany thumped Mexico 4-1 on their way to winning the Confederations Cup previous year, and Shin feels Die Mannschaft may not have expected to be examined so thoroughly by Juan Carlos Osorio's team, a mistake he does not intend to repeat.

"I think it had an impact on us and now we are very much united having gone through very hard moments", midfielder Andres Guardado told a news conference on Friday.

South Korea lost its opener, 1-0, to Sweden, Monday, the third consecutive game it was held scoreless. Carlos Vela sent Jo the wrong way for the first goal of the game.

They took the lead in Rostov-on-Don through Carlos Vela's penalty - the 14th of the tournament already - on 26 minutes after Jang Hyun-soo's handball.

After the break, the Mexican team doubled their advantage. Carlos Vela calmly struck the ensuing penalty kick to the left of goalkeeper Jo Hyeon-woo, sending the crowd into hysterics and huge quantities of beer into the air above the stands.

And all of them should be afraid of Mexico. "They tend to relax, they tend to lose focus, so every weekend, every match, we insist on being fully focused on not losing that important message", Osorio said. "We have received a lot of praise but remain focused nonetheless", he added.

Son Heung-min's stunning late strike in stoppage time created a tense finish to the game. Looking forward, even if they have nothing to play for in their last game against Germany, you can bet they will give it their all to try and cause upset.

Vela nearly turned provider two minutes later with a neat ball into Layun, but the former Watford man lashed his effort over from close range.

A large group of Mexican fans arrived at the team hotel Friday, singing and chanting outside, in the hope of greeting their heroes.

Germany's later 2-1 win over Sweden means Mexico will have to wait until their final Group F game against the Swedes on Wednesday to clinch their place in the last 16, with a draw guaranteeing they make it through.
