Son's Brace Not Enough As Colombia Grab 2-2 Draw In Klinsman

Son Heung-Min Celebrates Goal

Coach Juergen Klinsmann's first game in charge of South Korea's Taeguk Warriors ended in a 2-2 draw against Colombia despite Tottenham Hotspur forward Son Heung-Min's brace.

The Koreans started strong, with Son netting two goals in the first half to give his team a two-goal lead at halftime.

However, two goals in quick succession from James Rodriguez and Jorge Carrascal early in the second half brought Colombia level with the Koreans.

Son's first goal came in the 10th minute, where he capitalized on his team's possession deep inside the Colombian half to score from a distance.

His second goal was even more impressive, with the Tottenham Hotspur striker bending a dipping free kick past Camilo Vargas from 25 yards with his right foot.

Colombia fought back hard in the second half, with Rodriguez slotting in a goal within a minute of the restart, and Carrascal sweeping in the equalizer three minutes later.

Although Celtic striker Oh Hyeon-gyu came close to winning the game for the Koreans with two minutes remaining, his goal-bound effort was cleared by the Colombian defense with Vargas absent.

South Korea will host Uruguay in Seoul on Tuesday for Klinsmann's second game in charge, while Colombia will travel to Osaka to take on Japan.

The Koreans will be hoping to bounce back from the disappointment of their draw against Colombia and secure a win under their new coach's leadership.
