YEKATERINBURG, Russia (AP) - Seven teams have won their first two World Cup matches, and six of them are through to the next round.
The exception is Mexico.
El Tri still may need points to secure a place in the round of 16 for a seventh consecutive World Cup.
Victories over defending champion Germany and South Korea weren't quite enough. If Sweden beats Mexico on Wednesday and Germany beats South Korea, three teams would be tied atop Group F with six points, sending it to tiebreakers that start with the best goal differential.
Mexico goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa said there wasn't any panic when he and his teammates learned they had unfinished business in their final game.
