The South Korean women’s soccer team is set to seek revenge against North Korea, which gave them a bitter taste on the way to winning a medal by losing in the quarterfinals of the 2022 Hangzhou Asian Games.
The Korean women’s soccer team, led by coach Colin Bell, will play the second match of Group B of the 2024 Paris Olympics Asia 2nd qualifying round at Xiamen Egret Stadium in China at 4:30 pm (Korean time) on the 29th.
South Korea’s second opponent for the Olympics is North Korea. North Korea defeated South Korea 1-4 in the women’s soccer quarterfinals of the Hangzhou Asian Games on the 30th of last month.
South Korea, which had won bronze medals three times in a row in the previous competition, was aiming to advance to the finals, but had to taste the bitterness of returning home empty-handed after losing to North Korea. South Korea, who had a rematch in about a month, was avenging their loss and needed a win against North Korea to advance to the Olympics.
The Olympic Asia second qualifying round is divided into three groups of four teams, and the team with the best performance among the first and second places in each group will advance to the semifinals, and the final two teams will advance to the Olympic finals.
The mood in South Korea ahead of the North Korea war is good. South Korea, which won 10-1 in the first round of the preliminary round against Thailand on the 26th, recorded one win alongside China, which defeated North Korea 2-1 on the same day, but is ranked first in the group with a significant lead in goal difference.
At that time, in the match against Thailand, Korea achieved a pleasant first win with a show of firepower, including hat tricks by Casey Eugene Fair and Cheon Garam.온라인카지노
Meanwhile, South Korea will play against North Korea on the 29th, then take a two-day break before playing the second preliminary round against China on November 1.
