Following their match against Sweden, Mexico's faithful turned their attention to the end of South Korea's game in Kazan.

Korea finished this year's World Cup defying overwhelming odds.

Germany, the winners of the last World Cup in 2014, opened up their campaign in Russian Federation with a narrow 1-0 defeat to Mexico. The Brazilian media is celebrating Germany's defeat because its national team had a crushing defeat against Germany in the semi-finals of the last World Cup. First-half match remain goalless.

"It wasn't only Ozil, a number of other players didn't perform as they normally would".

England and Belgium face off in their final Group G encounter on Thursday, with an eye on who they will play in the knockout.

Mexican airline Aeromexico announced a 20 percent discount on its Korean flights, saying: "We love you Korea!"

Sport often tends to sympathize with the underdogs and it is for that reason that South Korea enjoyed a huge backing not just in the Spartak Stadium but throughout the country.

"We're coming into tomorrow's game expecting that we can do a performance at the top level we've already showed on several occasions".

Mexico fans celebrated in the stands when hearing that South Korea had scored against Germany.

"We're out now, but there's still the European Championship", he said, referring to the European Football Championship coming up in 2020.

After the game, coach Joachim Low refused to lay blame exclusively on Ozil.

Germany have three points from two games, while South Korea are now last in Group F with two losses, but they still have a chance to advance to the Round of 16. Portugal's campaign in Brazil unravelled four years ago after a heavy loss against Germany in the opening match.

Germany salvaged its chances of advancing with Toni Kroos' injury-time victor on Saturday.

The Germans were very poor and deservedly beaten by Mexico in game one and only pipped Sweden thanks to a stunning last-gasp free-kick.
