The Korean women’s soccer team preparing for the 2023 Women’s World Cup will go to a ‘rehearsal for the Morocco game’ in their home room against Zambia.
The Korean women’s national team, led by coach Colin Bell, will play a friendly match against Zambia at 7:00 pm on the 7th at the Suwon World Cup Stadium.
It is the first A match that the women’s national team will play at home this year ahead of the Women’s World Cup co-hosted by Australia and New Zealand in July and August.토토사이트
The women’s national team’s A-match home game is the first in seven months since the match against Jamaica in Hwaseong last September.
Since then, Belho has continued to temper with the New Zealand away evaluation match in November last year and the Arnold Clark Cup, a friendly competition between four England countries in February this year.
During the A-match period in April, they will play two warm-up matches against Zambia.
Following the first evaluation match on this day, the second evaluation match will be held at Yongin Mir Stadium at 7:00 pm on the 11th.
After two consecutive matches against Zambia, the national team is expected to reconvene in June for final training for the World Cup finals.
Belho competes in Group H with Colombia, Morocco and Germany at the Women’s World Cup. Among them, Morocco will face off in the second round of the group stage (July 30).
The match against Zambia is a mock test in preparation for the match against Morocco, the final opponent.
It is an important evaluation match in preparation for the World Cup finals, but it is not the best power as some key players have left due to ‘injury variables’.
Striker Kang Chae-rim and midfielder Chang-chang Jang (above Hyundai Steel) were injured, and ‘ace’ Ji So-yeon (Suwon FC) missed the first game due to a recurrence of an ankle injury.
It remains to be seen, but it is unclear whether he will participate in the second match against Zambia.
In addition, striker Yuri Choi (Hyundai Steel) and veteran defender Shim Seo-yeon (Suwon FC) also suffered from hamstring and right knee injuries, respectively, and could not complete team training.
Veteran midfielder Cho So-hyun (Tottenham), who returned to the national team after nine months, must take center stage.
Zambia, the opponent for the evaluation match, is ranked 77th in the FIFA rankings, lower than Korea (17th).
However, a thorough analysis of African teams is required, as in the 0-2 loss to Nigeria, which was evaluated as one lower score, at the Women’s World Cup in France four years ago.
Zambia won the World Cup finals for the first time in history by finishing third after South Africa and Morocco in the Africa Women’s Cup of Nations, which also serves as a World Cup qualifier in July last year.
It is the first time that the Korean and Zambian women’s national teams will face each other.
It is also the first time that the African women’s national team has been invited to a domestic evaluation match.
