While most of the Mexican players do not have too much of a physical presence, their superior skills and tactical ability will present a different sort of challenge for the Koreans.
Hirving Lozano, the star for Mexico against Germany, scored the only game of the match and will be eager to go against South Korea to find the back of the net again.
South Korea midfielder Koo Ja-cheol said on Saturday his teammates were preparing to tackle Mexico and had found striker Javier Hernandezas as one of the major threat.
Overall, it will be a herculean task for the Asian outfit to pull off a victory against the Mexicans on Saturday.
