Trying to have a table cell span 2 columns, but the cell only spans one column. What am I missing in my code?

<!DOCTYPE html> <html> <head> <title>HTML Tables Challenge</title> </head> <body> <h1>HTML Tables Challenge</h1>

<!-- Write your code below -->
<table>
  <thead>Table Heading
    <tr>Row
        <th>Direct</th>
        <th>Indirect</th>        
    </tr>
  </thead>
    <tbody>
    <tr>Row 2
      <td>One</td>
      <td>Two</td>
      <td>Three</td>
    </tr>
    <tr>
      <td col span="2"> The information in this cell needs to span 2 columns.</td>
      <td>One column span</td>
    </tr>  
  </tbody>
</table>

</body> </html>
