ICYMI, South Korea defeated Germany 2–0 in its World Cup matchup on Wednesday. Germany, previous World Cup champions, will not even advance to the knockout round. Some may call the loss unprecedented; others might call it humiliating.
@FoxSportsBrasil simply tweeted:
Now, South Korea's win also means that team Mexico, which was defeated by Sweden, will also advance. And its passionate fans, realizing this, reacted accordingly to the game.
Some celebrated like it was their own team!
After the Germany vs. South Korea match, a parade of Mexican fans in Mexico City swarmed a single Korean fan and lifted him up.
Individual, random Koreans are being celebrated.
This guy's friend, in a cowboy hat and boots, danced to "Gangnam Style."
Mexican American fans announced that they're flooding to Koreatown tonight to give their regards in the form of eating at Korean establishments and tipping well.
"I’m going to Korea Town today and will hug and thank every single person I run into. Gracias Korea," one person tweeted.
According to social media worldwide, Korean citizens everywhere are officially "invited to the carne asada."
Mexico soccer fans vowed to "start listening to K-pop" and "continue watching more Korean dramas."
There were jokes.
And one guy, who identified himself as Korean, said he'd already been approached by a group of Mexico fans in public who shook his hand.
