Javier "Chicharito" Hernandez provided what proved to be the game victor in the 66th minute-his 50th global goal, most in Mexico national team history.

Carlos Vela and Javier "Chicharito" Hernandez scored for El Tri as they earned their second win of their 2018 FIFA World Cup campaign.

In their last ever meeting Mexico thrashed the South Koreans 4-0 in friendly played between the teams in 2014 while the last ever competitive match between them in the 2001 Confederations Cup ended with a 2-1 victory to the Asian side.

Hernandez added the second in the 66th minute, cutting inside his marker before guiding the ball home to finish off a lightning counter-attack after Mexico won the ball deep in their own half.

As for South Korea, they are in much more of a dire situation after losing 1-0 to Sweden.

Maybe against Germany less will be expected of him so he can try and make an impact under less pressure, but you feel he will need to provide quality if South Korea are to get anything from that game.

Vela was made to wait by goalkeeper Jo Hyeon-woo, who played for time by swigging his water and chatting to his team-mates, but there was no mistake.

It was heard, for instance, in the Mexico-Germany game in Moscow, and the team again received a fine of $10,000. "We could have played a better game if those players were with us".

"In the end we haven't achieved anything", said the 31-year-old.

So, two teams with two very different mindsets heading into this one. Coach Juan Carlos Osorio insisted that his team would not be complacent, however, underlining South Korea's tactical nous.

And now, the Colombian could be dreaming of taking Mexico into the quarter-finals of the World Cup, breaking the fifth game curse - El Tri have only gone past the last-16 once, when they hosted in 1986. The shutout was Mexico's sixth in its past eight games.

Mexico were quick out of the traps in the opening half, pressing forward and passing well around the Korean team.

Rafael Marquez has thanked Mexico supporters for their backing throughout the World Cup, but asked fans to let them rest at the team's hotel. Only Russia's Roman Zobnin (eight) has more.

"Germany probably thought they would be an easy opponent", he said. South Korea is a +460 underdog, while a draw bet is listed at +253.
