'Proud' Sweden coach revels in last 16 qualification

We will lick our wounds and come back: Sweden prepare for crucial Mexico show-down

Sweden had a big chance to take the lead inside the first two minutes when Berg headed an Emil Forsberg free kick back across goal towards Andreas Granqvist, but the defender just failed to make contact.

When Sweden did push forward, Hernandez was accused of handling in the area, but protests were waved away by the referee, cue apoplectic reactions from Sweden coach Janne Andersson and talisman Sebastien Larsson.

Mexico's Edson Alvarez had an own goal in the 74th minute to put the game out of reach at 3-0.

Mexico are unchanged for Wednesday's Group F match against Sweden at the World Cup, the first time in 50 games that Juan Carlos Osorio has kept the same XI.

Sweden's three-goal success has seen them win the section, while Mexico have gone through in second due to Germany's 2-0 defeat to South Korea, with the reigning champions incredibly exiting the competition.

While celebrations were muted among the players, there can be no doubt that the relief for them - and the team's millions of supporters - was enormous.

"We showed that we can match the reigning champions nearly all the way to the end and that strengthens the self-confidence". So Loew made four changes against Sweden, including dropping playmaker Mesut Ozil from the starting lineup.

Goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa handled outside the box and then flapped at the resulting free-kick. Had Germany won 1-0, Mexico would have been out.

Casey takes lead at Travelers
Open champion Brooks Koepka (nine under), Zach Johnson (nine under) and last year's victor , Jordan Spieth (four under). The field for the 12th edition of this event features two-time former champion Tiger Woods (2009, 2012).

Germany and Brazil, both early favorites for the title, struggled through their opening two matches.

Jesus Gallardo's yellow card after 13 seconds - the World Cup's fastest booking - should have given Mexico an idea they were in for a tricky time.

And there are still 20 more matches to be played.

Fubo TV also offers three days of auto recording and 30 hours of Cloud DVR service in case you can't watch the Mexico Sweden soccer game live.

Even in Yekaterinburg, almost 500 miles away, the Mexican fans expected Germany to score. Both teams missed an array of chances, with the best of them falling to Germany as Mesut Ozil's delightful cross was picked up by Hummels in the box, but his header was woeful, to say the least.

Paulinho and Thiago Silva scored a goal each to give the five-time champions a victory over Serbia and first place in their group. I'm very pleased with all of this. "We don't need to look at who's not there, we need to look at who will be able to play".

Star striker Javier Hernandez became the first to score 50 goals in a Mexican jersey when he struck against South Korea - his 104th worldwide appearance.
