Mexico can book a spot in the knockout rounds of the World Cup when they meet South Korea in their Group F game on Saturday.

Juan Carlos Osorio's side stunned Germany in their opening game, with Hirving Lozano's superb strike sealing a 1-0 win and another three points would secure their spot in the last 16.

However, manager Osorio says Mexico will not be overconfident at the Rostov Arena: "I hope that we're not going to rest on our laurels and take our foot off the gas. We know all too well that in football, things can change overnight.

"We're going to be playing a very robust opponent, even if we have all the chances to win. All the players are focused. We did not come to the World Cup just to beat Germany."

South Korea slipped to a narrow 1-0 defeat to Sweden on Monday, but manager Tae-yong Shin is hoping forward Heung-min Son can show off his talents in Rostov-on-Don.

"I think he's the best of all the Asian players but if you look at the game against Sweden we faced a lot of difficulties, we had to play defensively and he had to sacrifice himself a lot and couldn't play to the best of his abilities," he said.
