Colombian Player Makes Racist Gesture VS. S


Edwin Cardona

Colombia midfielder Edwin Cardona could face Federation Internationale de Football Association punishment after allegedly making a racist gesture during his country’s 2-1 loss to South Korea on Friday. During the second half, Colombia’s Edwin Cardona made a racist gesture toward South Korean players during a scuffle.

Last Sunday, Son had just become the EPL’s highest-scoring Asian as his goal in Tottenham’s 1-0 win over Crystal Palace saw him surpass the previous record of 19 goals by fellow countryman and retired Manchester United midfielder Park Ji Sung.

“I didn’t mean to disrespect anyone, a country or a race, but if anyone felt offended, or interpreted it in that way, I am sorry”, he said in a video published on the Colombian national team’s official Twitter account. “I am sorry that something that happened during the game has been misinterpreted”. But Ki, who clearly did see Cardona’s action, called it “absolutely unacceptable”. “But racist behavior is absolutely unacceptable”.

That’s when Carmona, who plays his club soccer for C.F. Monterrey on loan from Boca Juniors, made the racist slant-eye gesture toward the South Korean players. “Colombia is a team full of world-class players and it was disappointing to see this kind of thing”.

Colombia gave themselves hope in the final 15 minutes as AC Milan defender Cristian Zapata scored, but it was not enough as South Korea earned an unlikely victory.
