‘Ji So-yeon’s absence’ women’s soccer, ‘European champ’ England

February 17, 2023 0 Comments

Forward Lee Geum-min (Brighton Women), who is active in England, was also unable to find a clear solution. Ji So-yeon (Suwon FC), who has been active in England for several years, has been sidelined due to injury. Although he knew his opponents well, he failed to overcome the difference in level with the ‘European Champion’ and lost a lot of points.

The Korean women’s national soccer team, led by head coach Colin Bell, lost 0-4 to England in the first leg of the Arnold Clark Cup held at Stadium MK in Milton Keynes, England at 4:45 am (Korean time) on the 17th.

The level difference was clearly recognized. England, the team that came out on top at the European Football Federation (UEFA) European Football Championship last July, has recently been undefeated in 26 A-matches. Just looking at the FIFA rankings, England was 4th and Korea was 15th, and they were pushed back with 1 draw and 1 loss in the past.

Moreover, Ji So-yeon (Suwon FC), who had experienced English soccer for several years, kept the bench because she could not fully recover from an ankle injury, while the main players of the national team, such as Cho So-hyun (Tottenham), Lee Young-joo (Madrid CFF), and Lee Min-ah (Hyundai Steel), could not be called up due to injuries and had difficulties. this was expected

Korea used a 5-4-1 formation that puts메이저놀이터 weight on defense. Son Hwa-yeon, Choi Yu-ri, Kim Yun-ji, Lee Geum-min, Kang Chae-rim, Jang Seul-gi, Lim Seon-joo, Hong Hye-ji, Kim Hye-ri, Chu Hyo-ju, and Kim Jeong-mi were named on the starting list.

England came out with a 3-5-2 formation. Kelly, Russo, Greenwood, James, Stanway, Toon, Bronze, Williamson, Bright, Carter, and Uppers started.

He was attracted to England from the beginning of the game. England consistently possessed the ball and caused difficulties for Korea. There were also scenes that made my heart sink. In the 35th minute of the first half, Lee Geum-min made a tackle to block the bronze breakthrough, but after the collision, I felt great pain in my shoulder. After the medical team was dispatched, the condition was checked, and fortunately, it was confirmed that it was not a major injury.

However, he could not hold out in the first half and conceded a goal. Im Seon-joo collided with James who was digging into the door and gave away a penalty kick (PK). Kicker Stanway gave up the opening goal and the first half ended 0-1.

At halftime, they entered the pitch with a hard time, but England’s offensive intensified. He scored an extra goal in the first minute of the second half. Kelly’s attempted shot hit Lee Geum-min and was deflected, shaking the net. The national team, which gave Russo its third goal in the 5th minute of the second half, attempted a player substitution in the 12th minute of the second half. Instead of Kim Yoon-ji and Kang Chae-rim, Park Ye-eun and Shim Seo-yeon were put in to reverse the atmosphere. However, no significant effect was seen. Rather, James allowed a wedge goal in the 33rd minute of the second half.

But it’s too early to be disappointed. Korea aims for the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup in Australia and New Zealand, which will open in July. Korea faces Germany (2nd in the FIFA rankings), Morocco (76th) and Colombia (27th) in the Women’s World Cup. It is important to write notes for incorrect answers while gaining sufficient experience through this competition. The match against England seems to have been a valuable experience as a ‘mock match against Germany’ in the World Cup. Korea will face off against Belgium (20th in the FIFA rankings) at 3:15 am on the 20th and Italy (17th) at 1:45 on the 23rd.

It was covered by a plane, but there was also a slope. Lim Seon-joo became the sixth Korean female player to join the Century Club, having played 100 of her A-matches since her August 2009 debut against Northern Mariana.
