S. Korea lose football friendly against Mexico marred by COVID-19 outbreak Updated: 2020-11-15 10:41:22 KST

South Korea's national football team lost their match against Mexico on Saturday, 3 to 2, a match they played despite the South Korean side missing half a dozen players out with COVID-19.
It was a friendly, played in Austria, just south of Vienna, but under the circumstances, the loss is not considered very consequential for either team.
The Korea Football Association announced about 20 hours before the match that four players and a staff member had tested positive, and then with a retest, two more had the virus.
Star striker Son Heung-min was not among those infected.
He gave a perfect cross to Hwang Ui-jo in the 21th minute for the team's first goal.
South Korea is due to play Qatar on Tuesday, but the outbreak has put that match in doubt.
