Is there any other evaluation that is more valuable than this?

The Korean women’s national soccer team (ranked 25th in FIFA), led by coach Colin Bell, faced off against Zambia (ranked 77th in FIFA) in the first round of the ‘Shinsegae E-Mart Invitational Women’s National Football Team Friendly Match’ held at Suwon World Cup Stadium at 7:00 pm on the 7th. earn스포츠토토

With only 94 days left until the opening, the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup Australia-New Zealand. Korea has been reborn as a new team since 2019 under coach Bell. Based on the experience he has accumulated while directly facing the world stage, he has continued to grow.

It also bore fruit. Belho achieved her first ever runner-up finish at the 2022 Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Women’s Asian Cup. This will also allow her to step on the Australia-New Zealand World Cup stage in 2023. It is the third consecutive advancement following the 2015 World Cup in Canada and the 2019 World Cup in France.

Coach Bell prepared for the World Cup under a long-term project. In order to prepare for Colombia (No. 26 in FIFA rankings), Germany (No. 2 in FIFA rankings), and Morocco (No. 73 in FIFA rankings), which will face each other in Group H of the group stage, he planned a ‘customized sparring stage’ and played evaluation matches.

The match against Colombia was replaced by Jamaica (ranked 42nd in the FIFA rankings), which is geographically close and has a similar color. Germany participated in the Arnold Clerk Cup and accumulated data by competing against England (FIFA ranking 4th), Italy (FIFA ranking 16th), and Belgium (FIFA ranking 20th).

The match against Zambia is a test stage for the match against Morocco. Compared to the countries mentioned so far, the FIFA ranking is relatively low, but there is no reason to lose heart. They advanced to the World Cup by finishing third in the 2022 African Football Confederation (AFC) Women’s Cup of Nations. At that time, Zambia was a team with potential enough to catch Nigeria, which was eliminated by Morocco in the 3rd-4th place match.

‘Group H ambush’ Zambia summoned to catch Morocco. Coach Bell summoned all the key players of the national team, including Ji So-yeon (Suwon FC), Jo So-hyun (Tottenham), Park Ye-eun, Lee Geum-min (Brighton), Kang Chae-rim, Jang Seul-gi, and Choi Yu-ri (Incheon Hyundai Steel) to prepare for the match.

The most important thing is to check the skills of the players and inspire confidence. Above all, as the opening of the World Cup is just around the corner, injuries must be avoided. Korea learns how to deal with African ambushes through the invaluable opportunity of the second evaluation match.
