Cardona incident overshadows South Korea´s Colombia victory

Cardona incident overshadows South Korea´s Colombia victory

It's unclear if Cardona's intentions were to make a "slanted-eyes" gesture, similar to the one that American baseball player Yuli Gurriel made during the World Series.

Colombian soccer player Edwin Cardona has netizens outraged for the racist gesture he made towards his South Korean opponents during a friendly match between the two teams on Friday.

South Korea captain, midfielder Ki Sung-Yueng, condemned Cardona's actions, saying, "racist behavior is absolutely unacceptable".

"I didn't see that gesture and I can not comment on that", Pekerman told reporters after the match.

"Colombia have world-class players, and it was disappointing for the team to show such actions", Ki added.

The Colombian football association "sincerely" apologized over the incident to its South Korean counterpart, according to South Korean news agency Yonhap.

Korea, which booked its place at the FIFA World Cup despite winning just four of 10 matches in the final stage of qualifying, tallied up eight shots to two by half-time and made its dominance count on the hour.

Days after that incident, Argentina's Ezequiel Lavezzi, who plays for Hebei China Fortune, sparked an uproar when promotional photos emerged of him pulling back the corners of his eyelids in a "slant-eyed" pose.

The incident came after a foul by Colombia's James Rodriguez, which led to him attempting to pick up Jin-Su Kim of South Korea and performing an fantastic flop after Kim brushed him away.
