Chile fell to South Korea in a friendly

First game for the Asians ahead of the 2022 Qatar World Cup

South Korea beat this Monday 2-0 to Chile in a friendly match in preparation for the Qatar-2022 World Cup for the Asian team, since the South American did not get a place for the World Cup.

In the 11th minute, the locals pierced the Chilean net in the first arrival of the game with a great right cross from Hwang Heechan from the left side of the area.

And in 90+1 Heung-Min Son, the South Korean star, scored from a free kick into the right corner from the edge of the area to celebrate his 100th appearance with the national team.

And that the meeting began dominated by 'the Red' while the South Koreans took time to get into the rhythm of the game, but an electric vertical play ended with the ball in the visiting net.

From then on the cards changed and South Korea showed superiority against Chile. Son, a player for English Tottenhan Hotspur, was the highlight of the match.

The South Korean captain had them in all colors: only on the run in front of the goalkeeper, in touch play or handing out assists. He got the gift from him at the end of the date with a foul score.

For more complications for Chile, in the 52nd minute they were left with 10 players due to Alex Ibacache being sent off for a double yellow card.

The match is the first prior to the Qatar-2022 World Cup for South Korea, which will soon face Paraguay.

Chile made its debut in this game with the Argentine Eduardo Berizzo on the bench, who took over last week to replace the Uruguayan Martín Lasarte, who could not get Chile to qualify for the World Cup.

South Korea will be part of Qatar-2022 in group H along with Portugal, Ghana and Uruguay.
