South Korea 2 Colombia 1: Son shines to give Shin first win

South Korea 2 Colombia 1: Son shines to give Shin first win”

South Korea and Colombia had both already qualified for World Cup 2018 in Russian Federation next summer, so there wasn't a lot at stake in this morning's worldwide friendly match in Suwon.

Tottenham attacker Heung-Min Son face Davinson Sanchez's Colombia on Friday.

It all started when Colombia's James Rodriguez picked up Jin-Su Kim after Kim was fouled.

With the score at 2-0 approaching the hour mark, a hard tackle on a Korean player sparked a bit of pushing and shoving between the two sides, and as the referee struggled to make the crowd disperse, a racist gesture was clearly captured by the live TV broadcast.

But the game's major talking point arrived in the 17th minute of the second half, when the 24-year-old, who is on loan at Boca Juniors from Monterrey, appeared to make a squinting-eyes gesture towards the home players.

With the actions of the player caught on camera and televised across the East Asian country, Cardona has received significant criticism from South Korea supporters.

His head coach, Jose Pekerman said afterward that he never saw the gesture.

Korea midfielder Ki Sung-yueng branded any type of racist behaviour as "absolutely unacceptable".

"But racist behaviour is absolutely unacceptable". Colombia will play at China on the same date.

"I didn't see that gesture and I can not comment on that", he told reporters.
