That fraught relationship has been transformed into a love affair in Russian Federation, where Mexico stunned 2014 World Cup champion Germany and then dispatched South Korea, 2-1, to close in on a place in the round of 16. With coach Juan Carlos Osorio managing a brilliant tournament in which he's been tactically flexible and made all the right moves, Mexico stunned reigning champion Germany 1-0 in its opener, then beat a physical South Korean team 2-1 in a game in which the Koreans seemed more intent on fouling than scoring.

Hernandez needs one goal to make him Mexico's all-time leading scorer in World Cup play with five.

In the end, Mexico could not get on the scoresheet to add to their goal tally, with the game finish 3-0 although they did finish after Germany had lost 2-0 to Korea Republic.

Star striker Javier Hernandez became the first to score 50 goals in a Mexican jersey when he struck against South Korea - his 104th global appearance. Once again the players have been highlighting the importance and value of the strong unity within the group.

Costa Rica's Bryan Ruiz put the penalty kick off the crossbar, but the ball redirected down and off the back of the head of a diving Sommer, ricocheting into the net as an own goal.
