South Korea Punishes Colombia for Defensive Mistakes in 2-1 Friendly Win

SEOUL – South Korea’s national soccer team made on Friday the most of Colombia’s defensive mistakes to prevail 2-1, their first win in six matches.

Host South Korea started the friendly game in strong fashion attacking Los Cafeteros, especially from the right side.

Their efforts paid off 10 minutes into the match, when Son Heung-min got the ball inside the area to dribble around the defenders before finding the back of the net.

Colombia’s James Rodriguez fired a free kick into the post, while teammate Giovanni Moreno squandered Columbia’s best chance in the first half, when he controlled a long ball but sent it wide of the goal.

Lee Kun-ho missed two chances to double the score in the first half, with a high header and a shot, both of which goalkeeper Leandro Castellanos saved.

Despite putting on a better performance after the break, Colombia conceded a second goal in the 60th minute, when Castellanos failed to stop a weak shot from Son Heung-min.

From a free kick, James played a cross which Cristian Zapata headed into the goal in the 77th minute.

James had the chance to draw level when he fired a shot that hit the bar.
