Totteham’s Son on target as South Korea beat Cameroon


By Sedara Oluwadara

Tottenham Hotspur forward Son Heung-min’s first-half header earned South Korea victory over Cameroon in a friendly in Seoul on Tuesday.

The 30-year-old nodded home a rebound in the 35th minute after Kim Jin-Su’s strike was parried by Indomitable Lions keeper Andre Onana.

The Central African nation, who fell 2-0 to Uzbekistan on Friday, have now suffered two defeats in their final warm-ups prior to naming their World Cup squad.

Coach Rigobert Song named a strong side against the Asians in the South Korean capital, but Nicolas Moumi Ngamaleu’s ambitious long-range effort was just wide midway through the first half.

Cameroon, who fielded Brentford’s Bryan Mbeumo throughout, had missed chances through Olivier Ntcham, Martin Hongla, and Pierre Kunde, while LĂ©andre Tawamba saw his stoppage-time effort saved.

The five-time African champions, who begin their World Cup campaign against Switzerland and are also grouped with Brazil and Serbia in Group G at the finals, will host Jamaica in a friendly in Yaounde on 9 November before leaving for Qatar, according to Song.
