Sweden maul Mexico 3-0 to top Group F

Sweden's players celebrate the team's second goal scored from the penalty spot during the Russia 2018 World Cup Group F football match between Mexico and Sweden at the Ekaterinburg Arena in Ekaterinburg

Social media quickly filled up with memes and posts praising South Korea for its victory and thanking the team for helping secure Mexico's passage through to the next round of the World Cup.

Federation Internationale de Football Association recorded the foul at 13 seconds, which beats the previous record held by Russia's Sergej Gorlukowitsch, who was booked inside 54 seconds in 1994 in the United States. "This is the World Cup". FIFA's records list first-minute cautions at games in 1950 and 1962, but do not specify the seconds.

Sweden and Mexico finished on six points, with Sweden finishing first on goal difference.

Hernandez missed a chance to pull a goal back soon after but Mexico were reliant on South Korea's result against Germany.

Neither Mexico coach Juan Carlos Osorio nor Sweden coach Janne Andersson made changes to their lineups.

It culminated with Alvarez's own goal, which occurred when he was trying to prevent Ola Toivonen from connecting with the ball, sending it past goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa.

U.S. Extends Sanctions Against North Korea, Citing 'Extraordinary Threat'
In total, more than 36,500 USA troops died in the conflict. "We need to closely watch North Korea's steps toward denuclearisation".

"The mistakes we made during the match cost us the result", Herrera said. "We can't pull it out of our pocket, it's not going to be easy and I think it's a good lesson for what's to come".

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. On 12 minutes Marcus Berg clipped wide from close range with a bicycle kick.

They and Mexico, who were ragged throughout, will next play whichever two teams emerge out of Brazil, Switzerland and Serbia in Group E, which concludes later on Wednesday.

Sweden had penalty claims turned down after referee Nestor Pitana referred to VAR when the ball struck Javier Hernandez high on the arm after half an hour.

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

Knowing this situation, however unlikely it is, exists, Mexico could decide to play a more defensive unit to ensure their place in the knockout rounds.
