Asian Games gold medalists South Korea faced off against Copa America holders Chile in front of a capacity crowd at the Suwon World Cup Stadium. While the game, which ended 0-0, was largely uneventful, the build up to it was anything but so.

Before the match, Chilean midfielder Diego Valdes was accused of making a racist gesture while posing for a picture with a South Korean fan. The midfielder was forced to issue an apology after the South Korean media widely circulated the image.

While there was no punishment handed out to the 24-year-old by neither FIFA nor the Chilean Football Federation, Valdes was certainly punished on the pitch by Tottenham winger Son Heung-min. Son, who was captaining South Korea on the night, produced an outrageous piece of skill to nutmeg Valdes, who was beaten all ends up.

Watch Son’s brilliant footwork below:


If his pre-match antics didn’t make Valdes feel embarrassed, that nonchalant piece of skill by Son would definitely have done the trick. Let’s hope he 24-year-old learned his lesson and will think twice before doing something stupid next time.
