South Korea has been a headache for the Mexican Olympic soccer team
The Reds will face the CONCACAF side on Saturday 31 July in the quarter-finals of the 2020 Tokyo Olympic soccer campaign.
Mexico defeated South Africa 3-0 on Wednesday and finished in second place in Group A to advance to the quarter-finals of the Olympic soccer tournament at Tokyo. The CONCACAF side will face South Korea in the next round and the winner will book their ticket to the semi-finals.
South Korea is a ‘headache’ for Mexico
The teams will face each other at the Yokohama International Stadium on Saturday 31 July and this will be a tough game for the Mexico Olympic team. The last time the CONCACAF side scored against the Reds in an Olympic tournament was in 1948 and they have never been able to defeat them.
Mexico and South Korea have played against each other five times in the history of the Games and four of them have been during the group stage in Atlanta 1996, Athens 2004, London 2012 and Rio 2016. In those four group stage matches Mexico was unable to score and they have a record of W0-D2-L2.
The only time the Mexico Olympic team was able to score against South Korea was in London 1948 and they lost 5-3 in the quarter-final match. Raúl Cárdenas, Fernando Figueroa and José Ruiz scored for Mexico, but the Asian side booked the ticket to the semi-final.
