We emphasize that the South Koreans made a good game, had good chances to score, however, they suffered a penalty goal. On this second day of the group stage, coach Tae-Yong Shin must act in the usual 4-3-3, but with a fairly defensive strategy, as the opponent has players of great individual value.

Mexico was one of the big surprises of the first day of the group stage of the World Cup, as it defeated the current champion, Germany, by 0-1: the only goal of the match was scored by Lozano. With that triumph in the theoretically most complicated game of the group, the Mexicans are very well channeled to advance in the competition. In this game against South Korea it will be expected that coach Juan Carlos Osorio will bet again in 4-2-3-1, privileging possession of the ball and organized attacks, always with Herrera and Guardado responsible for transporting the equipment for the attack. It is important to note that the Mexican team has great offensive quality and a defensive sector competent in the air game. Lozano is one of the great highlights of Mexico, being a technically strong and effective player in the finalization. For this game the coach can count on all his players.
