South Kore vs Mexico Match Preview
Mexico are coming out for a victory that can get them out of the group stages, after winning against no other but defending World Cup Champions Germany.
South Korea will try to continue their participation in the race by requiring a necessary victory after dropping three points to Sweden.
The Tricolors are in great shape while playing fast and dynamic soccer, their defensive lines are stable and very consistent and compact, we see them in both phases of the game. Mexicans are very dangerous on the counter-attack and have an incredible transition from phase protection to phase attack we saw this lightning transition in the match against Germany. The fast and a technical trio of footballers in the face of Javier Hernández, Carlos Vela and Lozano make every defence to experience disharmony in any chance to attack this great band.The defence is very compact and unified and this shows us, Juan Carlos Osorio, what strong team he created and they played as a tottaly unit.
Shin Tae-yong’s team is not in good shape after losing from the Swedish squad. In the offensive plan, they did not create enough danger attacks against Olsen (Sweden GK) and this shows us that they do not have a good attack effectiveness. But their defensive fronts is helpful where not concede many goals and they are looking solid.
