Rio de Janeiro (dpa) - Defending Olympic champions Mexico and Argentina both crashed out of the 2016 football tournament while Germany advanced to the quarter-finals with a 10-0 rout of Fiji on Wednesday.

South Korea ended Mexico‘s campaign with a 1-0 win in Brasilia courtesy of a 77th minute goal from Suwon Bluewings midfielder Kwon Chang Hoon to top Group C.

Germany, after two draws against Mexico and South Korea, cantered to double figures against already-eliminated Fiji in Belo Horizonte to finish second in the group.

Freiburg striker Nils Peterson led the way with five goals, Schalke‘s Max Meyer scored a hat-trick and Arsenal midfielder Serge Gnabry notched a brace against the Fijian part-timers.

The win was the first for a German team at an Olympics for 28 years and the second-highest victory since a 16-0 victory against Russia in a consolation tournament 104 years ago in Stockholm.

In Brasilia, Argentina crashed out while Honduras advanced after a 1-1 draw in Group D in which both sides missed penalties.

Striker Antony Lozano then converted from the spot for Honduras while Mauricio Martinez‘s stoppage-time goal was too late to save the Albiceleste.

Portugal drew 1-1 with Algeria in Belo Horizonte to finish top of the group, and will now meet the Germans in Brasilia on Saturday, while South Korea play Honduras in Belo Horizonte.
