A win gave Mexico six points in Group F - and it's looking likely that Mexico can emerge as the victor of the group and avoid a Round of 16 showdown with Brazil. Chicharito's first goal in the competition was the insurance marker his team eventually needed to vanquish South Korea.
Saturday was no different, except their route to victory in a key World Cup group game at Russian Federation 2018 was anything but simple for the four-time world champions.

South Korea lost its opener, 1-0, to Sweden, Monday, the third consecutive game it was held scoreless. Hueng-Min Son tallied the lone goal for South Korea in the dying moments of the match.
"I think this will be a very attractive memory in the future", Osorio said in Spanish through an interpreter.
