Mexico’s Hirving Lozano goes full-John Terry to block certain goal in their clash against South Korea

This is about as brave as it gets from the Mexican winger

If you’re looking for a second-team to support at the World Cup this summer, we implore you to consider Mexico.

The fast, counter-attacking side have already played out one of the games of the tournament so far, when they defeated Germany in their opening clash of Group F.

Pretty special result.

And up against South Korea today, you can clearly see how desperate they are for the win to secure their place in the last-16.

But in the early exchanges of the match, it was the Koreans who looked the more likely to score.

In fact, on the 12th minute they went very close indeed.

Attacking down the left-flank, South Korea’s Hwang Hee-chan managed to beat his marker Jesus Gallardo before crossing the ball beyond Mexico’s defence and goalkeeper.

Falling nicely for Lee Yong on the right of the box, the marauding full-back then attempted a first-time shot with seemingly just the ‘keeper to beat.

But tracking-back to defend, the brilliant Hirving Lozano managed anticipate his actions and dived head-first in-front of the shot, blocking a certain goal and winding himself in the process.

Talk about taking one for the team, eh?

In fact, it really reminds us of the time John Terry was famously knocked unconscious after throwing himself in for a header against Arsenal’s Abou Diaby back in 2007.
