A tremendous second half rally from Sweden saw the team record a 3-0 win courtesy of goals from Ludwig Augustinsson, Andreas Granqvist from the penalty spot, and then an own goal from Edson Alvarez to seal a shock victory against perhaps the strongest team in the group.

Sweden were locked 0-0 with Mexico in their crunch World Cup Group F clash today.

Word of a late South Korea goal arrived at the stadium in stoppage time, providing a massive relief for Mexico and their fans.

Germany ended up last in Group F while Sweden and Mexico advanced to the round of 16.

Mexico were left hoping that Germany did not beat South Korea in the other final group game, as the tension that had bubbled throughout ratcheted up a notch.

Juan Carlos Osorio's side, so brilliant in two previous wins over Germany and South Korea, should have at least a goal from their underwhelming performance but for woeful Vela header in the closing stages.

Sweden makes its first appearance in the knockout stage since 2006. The under 2.5 goals should win.

Paulinho met a lofted ball from Philippe Coutinho in the 36th minute. Making a run from the midfield, Paulinho closed on the bouncing ball, recognized keeper Vladimir Stojkovic coming out for it and flicked it up and over into the vacated net.

Brazilian left back Marcelo left the game less than 10 minutes in with back spasms and was replaced by Filipe Luis.

Sweden only made it to Russian Federation by beating Italy in the play-offs, but were worthy winners at Yekaterinburg Arena, condemning Mexico's large following to a nervy ending as they became reliant on South Korea in Kazan. "This is the Group of Death", he added, saying Mexico had a "magnificent opportunity to break that ceiling" after falling at the last-16 stage in each of the last six World Cups.

SWITZERLAND 2, COSTA RICA 2: In Nizhny Novgorod, Switzerland has qualified for the round of 16 despite twice losing the lead against Costa Rica, which had already been eliminated.

Switzerland found itself scrutinized following its 2-1 victory over Serbia because three of its players used the match to make political statements.

The Serbs almost scored in the 61st when Brazil goalkeeper Alisson pushed the ball into the path of forward Aleksandar Mitrovic, whose shot bounced off the keeper and was bound for goal before being cleared by Silva. The Mexicans just need one point but with Sweden looking to win, it is unlikely that Mexico will be able to park the bus for 90 minutes.
