Osorio's team started on the front foot, with Miguel Layun seeing plenty of the ball in wide positions.

Mexico made it two wins out of two as they edged out South Korea in their Group F match against South Korea in Rostov.

Mexico opened its World Cup by upsetting defending champion Germany 1-0.

Mexico were awarded a penalty in the 24th minute when Jang Hyun-soo handled a cross from Andres Guardado, however, and Carlos Vela converted from the spot to send his team 1-0 ahead in the 26th minute.

Germany (no points) face Sweden (three) later on Saturday.

Meanwhile, South Korea were condemned to an early exit after losing their opening two matches despite Heung-Min Son scoring a spectacular consolation strike in stoppage time. Mexico relied on keeping possession and long-range shots, with a powerful attempt from Andreas Guardado forcing an athletic save from Jo in the second half. A volley from Vela skimmed the bar minutes later.

After the match - as is usual - passionate soccer fans spilled into the streets all over the country to celebrate the victory, including Mexico City where the capital's annual gay pride march is also being held today.

Mexico has reached the round of 16 in six straight World Cups, but the team has not advanced to the quarterfinals since playing at home in 1986.

Mexico will qualify for the last 16 if they win and Germany fail to beat Sweden.
