A dramatic stoppage-time goal from Toni Kroos gave holders Germany a 2-1 win over Sweden on Saturday in Sochi, Russia, to keep alive their hopes of qualifying for the World Cup last 16. With FuboTV, World Cup live streams are available in 4K.

Vela put Mexico ahead in the 26 on a penalty kick after the handball in the box by a South Korea defender. Mexico's ball control kept the South Korean side pinned to their half of the pitch until tactical changes took effect at the intermission. South Korea are now last in the group with two losses, but if they beat Germany by a two goal-margin and Sweden lose to Mexico, they could end up second place behind Mexico with a better goal difference.

Mexico will clinch their place in the next round if Germany fail to beat Sweden in the other Group F game later on Saturday. Chicharito bagged his 50th goal in global play on a counter-attack led by breakout star Hirving Lozano - but Mexico was only able to score because referee Milorad Mazic allowed play to continue after Hector Herrera fouled Ki Sung-yueng to gain possession.

Hernandez also scored for Mexico on June 23 at the last World Cup, netting in a 3-1 defeat of Croatia.

Los Angeles FC forward Carlos Vela scored a penalty to open the scoring in front of a vibrant crowd in Rostov-on-Don, with West Ham's Javier Hernandez adding the killer second after half-time.

South Korea will be eliminated if Sweden wins or draws. - Javier Hernandez is only the third player to score at three different World Cups for Mexico (2010, 2014 and 2018), joining Cuauhtemoc Blanco (1998, 2002 and 2010) and Rafael Marquez (2006, 2010 and 2014).

If Mexico's qualification isn't confirmed today, the national team will have the chance to determine its own fate in its third and final group match against Sweden in Ekaterinburg on Wednesday.

Mexican fans avoided using a chant, which is considered to be homophobic by Federation Internationale de Football Association, against the opposing goalkeeper.

Japan lead the way with a success rate of 58.54% while England are second with 58.49%, but Mexico are some way better than defending world champions Germany who have a disappointing success rate of 47.27%.

25' GOAL! It's a clean strike by Carlos Vela straight in the back of the net as Cho drops to the left.
