Editor's note: This is the latest in a series of posts highlighting the most viral moments of the 2018 World Cup.

Mexico stunned defending champ Germany last week and continued its 2018 World Cup reign on Saturday, beating South Korea 2-1 in a game that sent social media into overdrive. Mexican star Javier "Chicharito" Hernández scored his 50th international goal in the victory, becoming the first Mexican player to do so, and the third Mexican player to score in three different World Cups.

And one fan noted, "#Mexico is the team to beat in this #WorldCup! What a team!"

It needed a miracle, and with seconds left, it got it with a winning goal from Toni Kroos. The German national team went a little nuts in a celebratory tweet, simply posting: "KROOOOOOOOOOOSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS ."
