Mexico fell to a 3-0 defeat against Sweden in their final Group F match but South Korea’s unlikely usurping of Germany elsewhere saw El Tri sail on through to the knockouts regardless.

As you might imagine, the celebrations of the streets of Mexico City were of the lively variety, with fans seeking out the South Korean embassy to express their gratitude.

Indeed, it wasn’t long before the Korean Republic’s general consul to Mexico, Han Byung Jin was being hoisted aloft and paraded around the square.

According to witnesses, Han also partook in a little of the local libation of choice to help grease the wheels of international relations…

We don’t profess to be fluent in Spanish, but we think the chant is “Brother, you’re Mexican now!”

There were also reports that Mexican radio stations began playing nothing but KPop music in the aftermath of South Korea’s heroic performance as a show of respect for their World Cup saviours.

Ain’t football just bloody brill sometimes?
