Mexico Advances to World Cup’s Next Round Thanks to South Korea. Mexico Totally ❤️s South Korea

A new flag is born

This is what happened. On Wednesday morning, Sweden beat Mexico 3-0, but Mexico managed to advance to the next round of the 2018 World Cup because Germany was eliminated after falling 2-0 to South Korea on the same day.

This, of course, made it for a massive Mexican-Korean party worldwide that I’m sure will last all day long –and probably will go on for the long weekend and until the next Mexico game (Monday, July 2.)

As soon as the news of the German defeat broke, Mexicans in the stadium started to chant and hug each other even when their team was losing 3-0 to Sweden and was clear it will never recover. Chilangos in Mexico City, meanwhile, took to the streets and marched all the way to the South Korean embassy to thank Koreans for “their service” in the most awesome way; singing the popular Cielito Lindo, bringing gifts to the Korean Ambassador and lifting random Koreans in arms and cheering them on. ¡Hermano, coreano, ya eres mexicano!

Similar scenes were recorded everywhere, from New York to Moscow and from Los Angeles to Seoul.

There’s a ton happening right now, but CLICK ON the following slideshow to see only a few of the best memes regarding our new hermanos coreanos.

¡Viva Corea, Cabrones!
