Sweden secured their place in the last 16 of the World Cup with a win over Mexico, who also progressed as world champions Germany were knocked out.

In an embarrassingly poor performamance Germany went behind in the game's closing stages when Kim Young-gwon scored following a VAR review with Son Heung-min then breaking away - with Manuel Neuer - out of his goal to add a second.

Andreas Granqvist converted the penalty for Sweden's second goal in a 3-0 win for the Europeans .

Moreno also was shown yellow in the first half of Mexico's 1-0 victory against Germany.

Check back for updates on this developing story.

Sweden, with their greater physicality, were on top, but Mexico were risky on the break.

The coach already is working on his plan for the Brazil match, with plenty of focus on the errors his team made in the defeat, however the wildly different idea of play between Sweden and Brazil mean there may not be many similarities between the two contests. In Osorio's case, it was the first time he hadn't altered his starting 11 in consecutive games since he took over in 2015.

Mexico's Jesus Gallardo was called for a yellow card just 13 seconds in - believed to be the fastest in World Cup history - setting up the first of two quick set-piece opportunities Sweden could not take advantage of.

Berg was just wide in the 12th minute.

Sweden were almost handed a penalty in the 29th minute when Hernandez appeared to handle the ball in the box, but the referee waved it away after consulting with the video review system, though Ochoa was called upon again to deny Berg following to ensuing corner.

As the runner-up, Mexico meets the Group E victor Monday in Samara.

After pressing hard for most of the first half and wasting numerous chances, Sweden finally found the net when left-back Ludwig Augustinsson charged up the field in the 50th minute and angled home a left-footed volley.

Hirving Lozano summed up the North Americans' day when he lashed a shot well over the target from 22 yards out on the right in the 88th minute after receiving the ball from a short corner.
