Sweden coach Janne Andersson refuses to gloat as Germany crash out

We will lick our wounds and come back: Sweden prepare for crucial Mexico show-down

We will lick our wounds and come back: Sweden prepare for crucial Mexico show-down

Ludwig Augustinsson volleyed in his first worldwide goal from close range to put Sweden ahead five minutes after the interval.

Mexico, meanwhile, failed to impose the high-tempo rhythm which had floored Germany and once Ludwig Augustinsson put Sweden ahead with a somewhat fortuitous goal five minutes after halftime, there was no way back.

They were up again on 30 minutes when referee Nestor Pitana of Argentina took a look at a video replay when the ball hit Mexico striker Javier Hernandez on the arm in the box.

Sweden took a 3-0 lead in the 74th minute, however, when Alvarez turned into the back of his own net from close range.

Germany ended up last in Group F while Sweden and Mexico advanced to the round of 16.

Sweden was so dominant against Mexico at the World Cup that the best Mexican plays of the night were made 600 miles away by South Koreans. Captain Andreas Granqvist made no mistake from the spot.

Five minutes later, Guillermo Ochoa was whistled for handling the ball just outside of his box, and as a result was forced to make a big save to stop Emil Forsgberg's free kick.

Mexico's supporter gestures during the group F match between Mexico and Sweden, at the 2018 soccer World Cup in the Yekaterinburg Arena in Yekaterinburg, Russia, Wednesday, June 27, 2018.

Germany, the clear favorite in this match, generated danger early on, but could not make it count.

Sweden then went 2-0 up and their goal came from the penalty spot as Hector Moreno's clumsy challenge on Berg was penalized.

"I have to say that we qualified because we beat Germany and Korea, but nevertheless I am very hurt", coach Juan Carlos Osorio told reporters.

"We want the players to recover mentally and physically (from this match)".

El Tri's faithful could be seen frantically checking their phones for scoring updates in Germany's game soon after Sweden's second goal.

After the match, a delighted Andersson said: "We worked as a team".

That left Mexico in a perilous position, as a late German victor would have sent them crashing out, but two injury-time South Korean goals ensured Osorio's men edged through as runners-up.

But the Mexicans also threatened several times to score. Mexico just need a draw to qualify but will be desperate for a moral boosting third win on the bounce.

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.
