Mexico Vs Sweden

Ekaterinburg, June 26: Mexico will aim to cement their place at the top of Group F while Sweden will battle for survival in what could be a tricky World Cup clash at the Ekaterinburg Arena here on Wednesday. Mexico have been one of the biggest attractions of this World Cup. They started their campaign in spectacular fashion, stunning defending champions Germany 1-0. A 2-1 win against South Korea in their next match strengthened their position at the top of the group. A draw will see them make sure of a berth in the next round and cement their status as group winners.

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