Arsenal’s Torreira nailed Tottenham’s Son in South Korea vs Uruguay ‘friendly’

It was the moment that the North London derby came to Seoul’s World Cup Stadium.

Arsenal’s Lucas Torreira didn’t seem to be in the ‘friendly’ spirit of things when he absolutely nailed Tottenham’s Son Heung-min in Friday’s friendly between South Korea and Uruguay.

The combative Uruguayan – who has quickly become a fans’ favourite at the Emirates Stadium since his summer move from Sampdoria – clattered into Son in the first half of the clash in the South Korean capital.

The Tottenham man recovered and went on to play the whole 90 minutes, but the challenge wasn’t the last pain he felt during the game.

The 26-year-old – who avoided military service after South Korea won the Asian Games last month – also missed a penalty in the match, with Hwang Ui-jo following up to open the scoring..

Jung Woo-Young also struck in Korea’s 2-1 victory, with Matias Vecino netting for Uruguay after a Torreira assist.

The North London pair will go head-to-head in the first derby of the Premier League season on December 2.
