Here’s How Mexico Fans Are Showing Their Love For South Korea In This Year’s World Cup
Before Mexico’s final group match against Sweden, Mexico fans were extremely anxious about the results of the game. Even though Mexico had won their first two games, they were still at risk of being eliminated from the World Cup with this match. After being defeated by Sweden with a score of 3-0, Mexico needed a Germany draw or a South Korea win to advance to the next round.
Late in the game, South Korea scored twice and defeated Germany, knocking the defending champions out of the tournament and putting Mexico through to the next round. In response to this win, Mexico fans across the internet praised South Korea with memes, GIFs and hilarious Tweets.
Here are just a few of the best ones:
One fan shared this GIF and said, “This was all Mexico fans before and after the Korea goals were announced.”
LOL. This was me! 😂
Everyone’s emotions escalated as soon as South Korea scored those two very important goals.
It went from devastation to celebration in a span of just a few minutes.
Ultimately, South Korea was the push Mexico needed to advance to the next round.
As you can see, Mexico barely made it through. Nonetheless, they freakin’ made it.
South Korea was Mexico’s last spark of hope and they came through with full support.
If it wasn’t for South Korea, Mexico would’ve fallen down hard.
After South Korea’s win, all Mexico fans suddenly became South Korea fans as well.
All of a sudden you start to hear chants like, “¡Vamos Korea!”
To sum it up, this is exactly what Mexico’s advance in the World Cup was like:
LMAO. So accurate.
Even though many Mexico fans put their faith in goalkeeper Memo Ochoa, it was South Korea all along that gave Mexico the miracle they needed.

One Mexico fan shared this GIF with the caption: “When they told Korea that if they win, Mexico advances, they said…”
Thank you a million times South Korea. 🙌🏾
Remember when Chicharito said this?
Well now we know what he was referring to when he said “cosas chingonas.”
As a thank you to South Korea, some restaurants and bars are giving out free tacos.
Lol. This is everything. 🙌🏾🌮
In addition to free tacos, South Korea is also invited to the next family gathering.
Scratch that. They’re invited to all of our parties and carne asadas for the rest of the year.
And if people are not celebrating with food, they’re celebrating with music.
This is exactly what one of my friends said after South Korea scored against Germany.
Some people are taking it all the way back to the K-pop hit “Gangnam Style.”
Who else has this song on repeat?
And it’s this exact level of energy from the “Gangnam Style” music video that Mexico fans are feeling after South Korea’s win.
This is my mood for the day.
A few fans are using their Photoshop skills to make slight adjustments to the Mexico flag.
Soon after, some Mexico fans started making this image the wallpaper on their phones.
Son Heung-min is our hero!
Overall, South Korea was the helping hand Mexico desperately needed.
Forever grateful. 🙌🏾
Here’s a beautiful image that portrays the love Mexico fans felt for South Korea after this suspenseful match.
Some people celebrated with kisses…
The love is real.
…and others celebrated side by side with their country’s flags in their hands.
Mil gracias South Korea. Good luck to all teams moving forward! 🙌🏾⚽️
