Mexico, Sweden Both Unchanged For World Cup

Germany's Toni Kroos scores against Sweden

Mexico came into the game at the Yekaterinburg Arena in the driving seat in a group where all four teams, including South Korea, could qualify, but they appeared the more nervous.

The 2014 champions were dumped out, with Janne Andersson's Sweden the big winners having started the day in third place.

Marco Fabian believes he and his Mexico team-mates were lucky to advance to the knockout round after an ugly defeat to Sweden, but hopes his team learns from the setback.

It was the second time in Germany's storied World Cup history that it had failed to progress from the group stage.

Ochoa was proving to be the busier of the two goalkeepers and he was called once again in the 31st minute to deny Berg from point-blank range.

Sweden were almost handed a penalty in the 29th minute when Hernandez appeared to handle the ball in the box, but the referee waved it away after consulting with the video review system, though Ochoa was called upon again to deny Berg following to ensuing corner.

Pitana was told to take another look at it by the video referee but, despite replays showing the ball hitting Hernandez's arm, he waved away Sweden's protests.

Peru coach Ricardo Gareca may quit after World Cup exit
The internet has unleashed its indignation on Denmark and France after the pair played out a dire 0-0 draw in Moscow, ending the record World Cup run which had seen every game feature at least one goal.

Vela went close for Mexico with a header just past the post but the Mexican supporters in the stadium were now looking at their mobile phones as all that mattered was that Germany didn't score.

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

It allowed Sweden to relax and they doubled their lead after 62 minutes through Granqvist's second spot-kick of the tournament.

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

Hector Moreno brought down Berg in the area and captain Granqvist stepped up to drive the ball high into the net.

Mexico's desperation proved unnecessary, however, as South Korea gave them a helping hand to the last 16 with a stunning 2-0 win over the holders Germany.
