Sweden routs Mexico, but both advance

Germany's Toni Kroos scores against Sweden

Ludwig Augustinsson volleyed a left-footed shot past goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa from close range five minutes into the second half, and captain Andreas Granqvist converted a penalty kick to help Sweden take control.

Sweden opened the scoring five minutes after the break thanks to Augustinsson's first worldwide goal.

But Germany failed to score in the simultaneous game, and South Korea's stoppage-time goals ensured Mexico advanced as group runners-up despite their capitulation against Sweden.

Reigning champions Germany were stunned 2-0 by South Korea in Kazan, bringing a shock early end to their campaign.

Sweden, who at half-time were heading home from Russian Federation, scored three times in the second half to top Group F with a deserved win.

Mexico's defender Jesus Gallardo is shown a yellow card by Argentine referee Hernan Maidana during the Russian Federation 2018 World Cup Group F football match between Mexico and Sweden at the Ekaterinburg Arena in Ekaterinburg on June 27, 2018. The main question is whether coach Osorio will play the team's usual attacking game or if he will decide to sit back and wait for the Swedes to push forward, given they likely need to win.

Hirving Lozano will be the main man in Mexico's line-up once again as they seek to confirm their place in the World Cup knockout rounds.

The Scandinavians conceded a goal in the 95th minute in their Group F match on Saturday, with winger Jimmy Durmaz later subjected to racial abuse on social media for giving away the free kick that led to Toni Kroos's goal.

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.

Besides Germany this year, France in 2002, Italy in 2010 and Spain in 2014 were the previous defending champions to get eliminated in the group stage.

Sweden have qualified into the round of 16 after a resounding victory over Mexico in their final Group F match in Sochi. "That match made us stronger, more confident".

KAZAN, Russia - Everyone was waiting for Germany to score another late World Cup-saving goal.

"We are courageous enough not only to dream, but to work on those dreams so that we can make them true", Hernandez said.

Ivan Perisic scored a late victor to send the Eastern Europeans through to the next stage of the competition. "They were so disciplined, so loyal in everything they did", coach Janne Andersson said.

Mexico's Javier Hernandez strikes a shot.

"Today, for the first time I tried to be maybe a purist", he said.
