The Korean team just played their first match since they were eliminated from the 2022 World Cup. Since then, the team has changed coaches, from Paulo Bento to Jurgen Klinsmann. Their opponent in a friendly match at home is a representative from South America, Colombia.

At Munsu Stadium, Tottenham star Son Heung-min is the name that shines the most. The striker playing in Europe scored the opening goal in the 10th minute, before doubling the lead in the last minutes of the first half.
However, after the break, the visitors quickly equalized by goals from James Rodriguez and Jorge Carrascal, 46 and 49 minutes respectively. No further goals were scored, the game ended 2-2. .
This match will be a boost for Heung-min amid a poor season with Spurs, scoring just six goals in the Premier League this season. Here Korea will have another friendly match with Uruguay.
