Cancún-born Carlos Vela put El Tri in front in the 26th minute of the match with a penalty kick the team was awarded due to a South Korean handball.

Thousands of soccer fans gathered in sports bars, churches, restaurants, pubs, football clubs and makeshift viewing stands all over Southern California on Saturday to watch Mexico take on South Korea in the World Cup in Russian Federation.

South Korea's lone goal, in extra time, came too late and Mexico won 2-1. "We are going to enjoy it", Hernandez said.

"In spite of those of us who are Mexicans knowing that it is not offensive and isn't homophobic as Federation Internationale de Football Association see it, if there is a rule or something that bans it, it's great that it has been respected in this game and hopefully it'll continue during the World Cup", Guardado said.

South Korean forward Son Heung-min scored a scintillating consolation goal in injury time but it was too little too late for the East Asian nation, which now can not qualify for the first knockout stage of the tournament. The Mexicans were awarded the penalty after Jang Hyun-soo handled the ball while trying to stop a cross from Andres Guardado.

Mexico coach Juan Carlos Osorio said he prepared more for the match against South Korea than for the game against Germany.

The South Koreans, who have lost their opening two matches, kept Ochoa under pressure throughout the match with Son often out-sprinting the Mexican defense.

Carlos Vela got the Mexicans on their way at the Rostov Arena with a 26th-minute penalty, before Javier Hernandez wrapped up the three points with a second six minutes after the hour mark. "All of the players became one, and they did their utmost until the very last minute".

Ki Sung-yueng threatened in the 56th minute with a ferocious drive that Guillermo Ochoa could only gather at the second attempt, before Cho did well two minutes later to keep out a curler by Guardado at full stretch.

After the match - as is usual - passionate soccer fans spilled into the streets all over the country to celebrate the victory, including Mexico City where the capital's annual gay pride march is also being held today.

South Korea still have a slim chance of reaching the last 16 on goal difference if they beat defending champions Germany and Mexico beat Sweden in the final round of Group F matches.
