Son Heung-min and Javier Hernandez start as South Korea face Mexico in Saturday's World Cup Group F encounter at the Rostov Arena.

Son Heung-min and Javier Hernandez have been named in the respective starting XIs of South Korea and Mexico ahead of Saturday's World Cup Group F encounter in Rostov.

For the Taeguk Warriors, midfielders Ju Se-jong and Moon Seon-min come into the team that lost 1-0 to Sweden in their opening game.

Red Bull Salzburg's Hwang Hee-chan, meanwhile, keeps his spot as he looks to add to his two international goals in a bid to kickstart South Korea's last-16 hopes.

As for Mexico, former Arsenal forward Carlos Vela is named in attack alongside Hirving Lozano, who scored in the 1-0 win over Germany.

Coach Juan Carlos Osorio has just one change from the victory over the world champions, with Edson Alvarez coming in for Hugo Ayala in defence.

South Korea and Mexico have met once before at the World Cup, the Central Americans running out 3-1 winners in the 1998 group stages.

South Korea: Cho Hyun-woo; Lee Yong, Jang Hyun-soo, Kim Young-gwon, Kim Min-woo; Moon Seon-min, Ju Se-jong, Ki Sung-yueng, Lee Jae-sung; Hwang Hee-chan, Son Heung-min

Mexico: Ochoa; Alvarez, Salcedo, Moreno, Gallardo; Herrera, Guardado; Layun, Vela, Lozano; Hernandez
