Download Video South Korea vs Mexico 2-1 Highlights & Goals
Twenty years on from their only previous World Cup meeting, Mexico will be hoping for history to repeat itself against South Korea today; the pair clashed in Lyon for their first game of France 1998 with the former running out 3-1 victors. Osorio takes charge of his 50th game at the helm of the national side in Rostov-on-Don; victory and progression from Group F would surely be the finest of ways for him to celebrate his milestone.
Against Sweden in their first match in Russia, South Korea was substantially poor, walked over by their opposition and managing to muster more yellow cards (two) than attempted on-target shots (none). They have failed to keep a clean sheet in 12 of their last 13 World Cup matches too; Tae faces a herculean task today to halt the buoyant Mexican machine in its tracks.
