MOSCOW, Russia (AP) — Mexico is in nearly complete control over South Korea at halftime at the World Cup despite just a 1-0 lead courtesy of a Carlos Vela penalty kick.

The forward scored from the spot in the 26th minute after defender Jang Hyun-soo handled the ball while sliding to block an Andres Guardado cross.

The South Koreans managed successive counterattacks by targeting striker Son Heung-min but caused few problems for Mexican goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa.

Mexico upset Germany to start the tournament and would be in strong position to advance with another win. South Korea lost its opening match.
