The Korean national soccer team, led by coach Jurgen Klinsmann (59), lost 0-1 against Peru in an A-match evaluation match held at the Busan Asiad Main Stadium at 8:00 pm on the 16th.
As a result, Klinsman, who failed to win his first victory with 1 draw and 1 loss in the two matches held in March, did not win this match either.
In the 11th minute of the first half, Korea collapsed in Peru attack, which attacked the defense with a short pass. In the end, Peru passed through an empty left-sided conversion to Brian Reina, and Reina scored without error.

He is receiving praise as a legend representing Peru as he led the advance to the 2018 World Cup in Russia.
On this day, Guerrero also contributed to Reina’s opening goal with his rust-free skills. Although they were rivals in the past, they were close friends and expressed joy at the reunion after a long time.
Lare Publica said, “As you will remember, Guerrero and Son Heung-min were close friends while playing as a team in Hamburg.
The media said, “Our Peru national team captain Guerrero and Wallcle Son Heung-min talked in English for a while. Guerrero sometimes used German as well.” he emphasized.
In an interview after the game, Guerrero said, “It felt so good to meet Son Heung-min after a long time. It felt even better because he waited for me.” He said, “Let’s meet again.” said with a smile.
