Follow along for live updates and highlights of goals and key plays as South Korea faces Mexico in the World Cup group stage.

Mexico returns to action after an impressive opening win at the World Cup when it faces South Korea in Rostov-on-Don, Russia.

Mexico beat defending champion Germany 1-0 to begin play at the World Cup and can take a massive step toward securing a place in the knockout stage if it can beat its Asian opponent. Hirving Lozano was the goal-scoring hero in the opener, while Guillermo Ochoa was brilliant in goal in keeping the clean sheet.

South Korea, meanwhile, conceded a goal on a VAR-aided penalty in a narrow 1-0 loss to Sweden and will be fighting for its tournament life against El Tri. Led by Tottenham star Son Heung-min, the South Koreans will set out to halt Mexico’s momentum and make for a more chaotic finish to Group F play.
