Colombian footballer makes 'slant eyes' gesture towards South Korean players during friendly

Tottenham Hotspur's Argentine head coach Mauricio Pochettino speaks to his South Korean forward Heung-min Son during the UEFA Champions League football match between Apoel FC and

South Korea had previously won only one of eight matches in 2017, while Colombia hasn't won in five straight. Just when tensions looked like they were cooling down, Cardona made a squinting gesture to a few South Korean players.

Cardona mocked the opposition with a "slanty-eyes" gesture as his nation were beaten 2-1 in Suwon, with both goals coming through Tottenham's Son Heung-Min.

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.

Colombia head coach Jose Pekerman refused to discuss the incident when questioned by reporters following the game.

"I didn't see that gesture and I can not comment on that", Pekerman stated.

"I thought the Colombians played a physical, rough game today, but it can happen in football", Ki said. "I can't comment further on an incident that I didn't see with my own eyes".

Korea midfielder Ki Sung-yueng, who plays for Premier League club Swansea City, branded any type of racist behaviour as "absolutely unacceptable".

However, in a video posted on the Colombia team's official Twitter account, the Boca Juniors star insisted he had not meant to offend anyone.

The controversy marks an eventful week for Cardona, who could face an global suspension of up to five games if he is found guilty of racist behaviour. "Colombia has world-class players, and I was extremely disappointed to see such action".
