Meanwhile, South Korea were condemned to an early exit after losing their opening two matches despite Heung-Min Son scoring a spectacular consolation strike in stoppage time.
Mexico were looking to build on their famous victory over the defending champions Germany in the group opener and, after a slow start this weekend, Javier Hernandez headed wide from a free-kick by Hector Moreno.
Mexico were awarded a penalty in the 24th minute when Jang Hyun-soo handled a cross from Andres Guardado, however, and Carlos Vela converted from the spot to send his team 1-0 ahead in the 26th minute.
The hapless Koreans, who have no points after two matches and have only won one of their last 11 World Cup fixtures, will be eliminated if Sweden draw or win against Germany.
Vela and Hirving Lozano also had chances for Mexico, before the second goal arrived with 25 minutes to go through Mexican all-time top scorer Hernandez.
But, six minutes before the half-hour mark, El Tricolor were handed the flawless opportunity to open the scoring when opposition defender Jang Hyun-soo needlessly went to the ground in an attempt to block an Andres Guardado cross - only to handle the ball inside the area.

Osorio was heavily criticised leading up to the World Cup but the Mexico coach has been somewhat justified in his decisions by his side's victories in Russian Federation.
South Korea received four yellow cards. Mexico relied on keeping possession and long-range shots, with a powerful attempt from Andreas Guardado forcing an athletic save from Jo in the second half.
While Mexico hasn't yet technically qualified for the last 16, if Sweden draws with or defeats Germany in the match now under way in Sochi, its spot in the second round will be confirmed.
