Claesson receives a yellow card for a late sliding challenge on Hwang. The corner comes to nothing and Sweden eventually come away with a free kick. South Korea have certainly been the better side in this second half so far. Granqvist is robbed on the edge of the box by Hwang and the South Korean forward can charge into the box.
He tries to find a teammate inside the six yard box but Jansson gets a foot in the way to knock it out for a corner. A Sweden free kick from the left is headed towards goal by Berg at the near post, but Cho reacts well to prevent the goal, before a defender hammers it clear.
He's had a very good game today, Cho. Hwang receives a yellow card for catching the top of the foot of Augustinsson. One of many needless fouls in this game as Kim Min-woo slides in late on Claesson. South Korea are beginning to impose themselves on the game now and have certainly stepped it up a notch. Their midfielders are moving the ball around with a sense of purpose and swagger.
Story continues 51 mins: A cross from the left finds Koo at the front post but he can only direct his header into the side netting. That was South Korea's best attack of the game by far.
Sweden try to play through the centre of a packed South Korea defence but it comes to nothing. South Korea's counter attack comes to a tame end too and Forsberg finds space outside the box at the other end to get a shot away, but he curls it high and wide. Sweden get the game back underway! The second half is imminent but it all still to play for between these two sides. It will surely be more of the same for Sweden but South Korea will certainly need to up the quality of the final ball if they are to cause the Swedes any problems.
It is all square at the break but Sweden will certainly be the happier side after showing glimpses of creative attacking play. Berg could have twice put his side ahead but was denied by Cho and Koo. South Korea have offered little attacking threat themselves and will need to be much more incisive if they are to get anything out of this game.
An excellent cross from the right wing finds Larsson inside the box, but he can only fire his header wide of the right post. The fourth official has indicated two minutes of additional time.

A wonderful lofted pass finds Berg free at the back post. The angle is too tight for the shot and no teammate is nearby to get on the end of his pass. Another big missed opportunity for Sweden. Son goes down inside the box under the challenge from Augustinsson but the referee is quick to wave away the penalty appeals.
They have not really offered much attacking threat in this first half in truth, South Korea. Just over five minutes left to play of this first half and neither side have really taken charge of the game yet.
Sweden have had the better opportunities but Cho and his defenders have been on top form today. South Korea come forward on the counter attack after Forsberg is robbed of possession in midfield, but they lack the pace to trouble the Sweden defence, who clear with relative ease.
Son has too much pace for his marker and bursts free down the right wing. He tries to find a teammate inside the box with a pull-back but Granqvist intercepts and clears.
They have players free on the left wing but Jang's overhit pass is straight out of play. It has been a very physical first 30 minutes or so between these two sides. They have committed 19 fouls between them so far. Neither side have been able to maintain any flow to their play.
A corner from the right wing drops straight at the feet of Berg at the back post. He looks sure to score but Koo reacts excellently to get the block in.
Park will play no further part in the tie after that leg injury. Kim Min-woo comes on to replace him. Concern for South Korea now as Park goes down injured off the field of play. He landed awkwardly as he tried to keep the ball in play with a header. A spell of South Korea possession comes to a tame end as they concede a throw in. Sweden are getting everybody behind the ball and closing down any space beyond them.
The first shot of this game came on South Korea continue to sit off Sweden and they are finding their way to the final third almost unchallenged. South Korea fail to clear their lines and a precise through ball finds Berg with only the goalkeeper to beat, but he fires his shot straight at Cho who stops it with his feet before punching the follow up clear. He should have scored. Excellent play and even better defending! A clever flick from Berg puts Granqvist through on goal but Kim Young-Gwon reacts brilliantly to block the shot and clear the danger.
Sweden are beginning to see more of the ball now. South Korea are content to sit deep and keep their defensive shape.
Sweden finally get numbers forward and a clever interchange inside the right of the box opens up space for a pass. The South Korea defenders react quickly to snuff out the danger. Better from Sweden though. Kim Shin-Wook receives the first booking of the afternoon after a late sliding challenge on Berg around the halfway line. A poor start to the tournament from Germany but Mexico looked fantastic, they played perfectly to counter the German system.
Only one team has ever won the World Cup after losing their opening game that was Spain in Germany need to improve but Mexico can be proud of this historic victory. Into three minutes of added time, Germany are on the verge of beginning their World Cup defence with a defeat. Herrera picks up a late yellow card for a clumsy foul.
There are to be three minutes added on at the end of this game, can Germany find an equaliser? The ball drops to Brandt on the edge of the area and the Bayer Leverkusen man smashes a ferocious attempt at goal which clatters the outside of the post. Was that the chance!? Gomez rises in the area to head at goal and you'd expect to see the net bulge.
However, his effort sails over the bar. Hummels now has his name taken for a clattering challenge, with his frustration clearly showing. I've lost count of the number of times Kroos has tried his luck from distance but, barring the free-kick, hasn't threatened Ochoa enough. It's another comfortable save. Muller picks up Germany's first yellow card of the game for a blatant shirt pull on Herrera. Layun has space following another counter attack and he drives a fierce shot at goal but it whistles past the far post.
Second change for Germany and another very attacking one, with Gomez replaces Plattenhardt.

Layun hits on the counter and has to do it all on his own, trying to beat Neuer from distance but his attempt isn't good enough. Germany ping the ball around, looking to make room, and Draxler looks to have an opening. He fires at goal but it's crucially blocked and put behind for a corner, though Mexico's defence remains firm yet again.
Germany are running out of time but they remain patient looking for an opening. Kroos picks the ball up on the edge of the area and tries to guide an effort into the bottom left-hand corner but it's wide of the mark yet again. A break in play as Gallardo receives treatment after taking a cross from Reus straight in the face.
Hernandez is found by a searching through ball and the West Ham man has the goal at his mercy. He comes under pressure from Hummels, falling to ground but he was certainly looking at it. Story continues 68 Mins: Germany are throwing everyone forward, leaving just Boateng back to protect Neuer's net.
Mexico could exploit that if they're a bit braver but they're content with what they have at the moment. Germany starting to find room as a cross floats over Salcedo and into the path of Draxler, who sees a shot deflected behind.
From the resulting corner, Werner volleys over the bar. Goalscorer Hirving Lozano makes way for Raul Jimenez, he has been fantastic today and may become one of the breakout stars of this tournament. Kimmich latches onto Boateng's cross and tries an acrobatic overhead kick, which loops over the head of Ochoa and lands on the roof of the net.
Mexico have packed the defence to limit the space for Germany to exploit and they're playing a lot deeper in the second half. The question is whether just one goal will be enough to secure the win. Into the final 30 minutes of the game and you expect both sides to have at least one clear-cut opportunity to find the net. Mexico would love to double their lead but Germany are dictating the tempo of the game.

An indication of Low's plans for the remainder of the match as a very attacking change is made. Reus enters the frame, replacing Khedira.
Germany need fresh ideas and it looks like Low is about to make his first change, with Marco Reus getting stripped and ready on the sidelines. Tactical switch for Mexico, as Alvarez replaces Vela in what is clearly a defensive change. Mexico hit on the counter again with two players charging through on goal, exposing the space left by Plattenhardt. Hernandez attempts to cut the ball across to Vela but he fails to get the ball under control.
Mexico always travel well to World Cup tournaments and are being given an immense reception here. Every touch is being cheered by their fans, although they have their backs against the wall at the moment. Werner tumbles on the edge of the box, appealing for a free-kick, but the referee waves play on.
Germany still to craft a direct opening, though Draxler sees a shot blocked and wins a corner. Germany are enjoying the lion's share of possession in the minutes since the restart but they're yet to find a way through the Mexico defence. Mexico will need to keep their heads throughout the match as Germany will certainly increase the pressure as the game progresses but they look solid for now. Doesn't look to be a change of plan for Germany, as Kimmich continues to push forward and leaving plenty of room at the back.
Germany get us started in this second half. Joachim Low will be determined for his side to perform better in the second half and Werner, who has looked threatening when he's found space in behind, needs to be given more of the ball.
Hummels and Boateng need to improve at the back, as they've struggled in the first period. Mexico have been fantastic in the opening half and thoroughly deserved their lead. They haven't allowed Toni Kroos any time on the ball, while Hirving Lozano has been deadly down the left and it's his goal that has been the difference.
The last two defending World Cup winners have exited the competition at the group stage, could Germany continue that trend? Mexico go in up and they deserve their lead.

Osorio's side have looked incredibly dangerous with their pace on the break. They have shown no fear against the defending world champions who have looked off the pace. There will be one minute added on at the end of the first half. Germany continue to look off the pace in attack, misplacing passes and wasting opportunities, while their defence is being torn apart by the pace of Mexico on the counter-attack.
The last time Germany conceded first in a World Cup match and went on to win was back inversus Mexico There have been 9 shots on target in this game - the most in the first half of a WC game since Togo v France in
