Mexico vs South Korea in the Olympics

Although Mexico has dominated in recent matches, things are reversed when it comes to the Olympic Games. Of the five times these two teams have faced each other, three victories have gone to Korea in 1948, 2004 and the most recent one in Rio de Janeiro 2016.

The other two matches resulted in goalless draws, so this time, Mexico will be looking to break this bad streak in order to advance to the semifinals in search of an Olympic medal. 

6:20 AM2 months ago

Statistics show Mexico's superiority

In the last five matches played between the two teams, three times Mexico has won, one was a draw and one was a victory for the Koreans.

The most recent match was a victory for the team from the American continent, with a score that ended 3-2 in a friendly game played in 2020.

Korea key player

On the Korean side, the player to watch and who will have to mark the Mexican backline very well will be Ui-Jo Hwang, who scored 3 goals against New Zealand in his last match.

He is a youthful striker who is also going through an extraordinary moment, and who will have to play a leading role with his characteristic eye for goal if the Koreans are to advance to the semifinals. 

9:54 PM2 months ago

Mexico key player

Luis Romo has been the driving force of the Mexican national team in the midfield, he has had a very good number of successful passes.

He is currently going through a great soccer level that will allow him to continue leading his teammates when attacking but also moving and looking for every ball when there is a play against him. 

In the match against Korea, his good performance will be fundamental to advance to the semifinals. 

9:49 PM2 months ago

Korea with high hopes for the tournamen

The eastern team began with a stumble against New Zealand and by the minimum that later would correct in a formidable way. 

In the second match they defeated Romania 4-0 and finally beat the Hondurans 6-0, which placed them in first place in their group, with 6 points but a goal difference of +9.

9:44 PM2 months ago

Mexico had an acceptable group phase

The team began by beating the French team with a convincing score of 4-1, and then faced the tournament hosts and lost by a tight 1-2 score. 

Finally, and to everyone's expectation, they managed to qualify with a 3-0 win over South Africa, obtaining second place in Group A. 

They are now looking to decorate Mexico's medal tally and, if possible, bring a gold medal back to Mexican territory.

Welcome to VAVEL.com’s coverage of the 2020 Olympic Games match: Mexico vs Korea Live Updates!

My name is Salvador Espino and I’ll be your host for this game.
We will provide you with pre-game analysis, score updates, and news as it happens live here on VAVEL.

The Tokyo Olympic Games have brought bad results for Mexican athletes in general, who only have the sad amount of 2 bronze medals. 

In view of this, soccer could be a hope to win another medal, and the Mexican players are hoping for a repeat of the gold medal won at London 2012.

On the other hand, the Korean team is looking to add another medal to their current 15 medals, including 5 gold medals, so the match promises to have two teams eager to win.
