VIDEO : #Russia2018 World Cup : Mexico vs Sweden 0-3 || WATCH Match Highlights

Sweden produced a sensational 3-0 win over Mexico as both sides progressed to the last 16 of the World Cup at the expense of Germany.

The Swedes started the day in third place in Group F, but Ludwig Augustinsson’s volley (50), Andreas Granqvist’s penalty (62) and Edson Alvarez’s calamitous own goal (74) saw them leap to top spot with a tremendous display in Yekaterinburg.

That put Mexico in serious danger of elimination, but two late goals for South Korea to defeat Germany 2-0 meant that the six points they picked up in their opening two matches were enough to see them into the knockout stages.
