Mexicans need just a point to top the group, while win is the only way for Scandinavians to qualify.

From the very first moment that C.Vela scored, S.Korea had no ambitions in the game vs Mexico. Without impressing, the team from central America doubled their score in the second half, while the goal they conceded in injury time just registered the final 2-1. Although Mexico has the maximum with 6 points in two games, they may end up in the third place of 6th goup, if Sweden beat them in today's 'final'.
Sweden should have been rewarded with a penalty resulting in Germany being down to ten men, before scoring their first goal, something that would have changed the flow of the game. It's more than strange the fact that the referee didn't see that penalty, neither had VAR team's help. Even so, Sweden were 15'' away from a draw, that would probably had brought them to last 16 of the tournament, but J.Durmaz conceded a stupid foul, a free kick that gave the win to Germany. I can't see how Scandinavians could get over the shock of that game game so as to play only for the win in today's 'final'.
A draw is enough for Mexico to top the group and qualify, but the offensive way that Sweden are obliged to perform could lead to Mexico's win. The 2,50 on Mexican's win is my call.
