Sweden crashes Mexico 3-0 at FIFA World Cup match in Yekaterinburg

Ludvig Augustinsson and Andreas Granqvist scored minutes apart after a scoreless first half, and Sweden got its third courtesy of an own goal on Mexico defender Edson Alvarez.

South Korea, having been eliminated after a 2-1 defeat to Mexico, started the game with a spring in their step and mounted pressure on the Germans both on and off the ball.

Sweden coach Janne Andersson must find a way to pick up his deflated players following their devastating defeat to Germany in a World Cup Group F that stands tantalisingly poised.

Switzerland coach Vladimir Petkovic's gamble to play the two key defenders while they were already on yellow cards backfired in a game where the team only needed a draw to progress.

Sweden thrashed Mexico 3-0 in Yekaterinburg on Wednesday to book a spot in the knockout stage of the FIFA World Cup.

Son Heung-min made it 2-0 in the sixth minute of stoppage time after Neuer came up the field to help his teammates outside the South Korea box. The costly mistakes were capitalized by the Sweden team.

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.

As Mexico pushed for a goal their defence were caught napping as the Sweden broke lose on the counter attack.

Sweden have qualified into the round of 16 after a resounding victory over Mexico in their final Group F match in Sochi.

"For the first time in many, many games when we play against a team that play that approach, direct football, we had this formation".

Germany and Brazil, both early favorites for the title, struggled through their opening two matches. Several members of the squad, including Ochoa, were also lambasted for their presence at a farewell party attended by around 30 prostitutes.

Sweden's Sebastian Larsson was booked in the first half for a high challenge on Hirving Lozano and will miss their last-16 match through suspension, as will Mexico's Moreno. "We need to draw the right conclusions".

Hernandez needs one goal to make him Mexico's all-time leading scorer in World Cup play with five. "However, I am very hurt", said the 56-year-old Colombian.

The four-time champions allowed a pair of injury-time goals while knowing a 1-0 victory would have been enough to advance because of the result in the other group match.

"We have handled the things that have happened - I'm so incredibly proud, moved nearly, by the thought of how we performed in the match", Sweden boss Andersson told a press conference.
