Women’s World Cup kicks off…Colleen Belhoe bids for ‘first ever quarter-final’

Aiming for a record-breaking performance!

Colin Bell’s women’s national team will face Germany, Colombia and Morocco in Group H at the FIFA Women’s World Cup Australia-New Zealand 2023, which kicks off on 20 June. South Korea, who first qualified for the Women’s World Cup in 2003, are making their third consecutive (2015-2019-2023) and fourth overall World Cup appearance.안전놀이터

South Korea, ranked 17th in the FIFA rankings, will open their campaign against Colombia (25th) on the 25th. They will then face Morocco (72nd) on the 30th and Germany (2nd) on the 3rd of next month. Colleen Belho will be aiming for her best-ever finish at the tournament. The women’s team’s best result was a round of 16 finish in Canada in 2015. The last time they competed in France in 2019, they were eliminated after three qualifying rounds.

This is their strongest squad ever. It is led by the golden generation that led the team to third place at the 2010 U-20 Women’s World Cup and the U-17 Women’s World Cup title. They are all in their 30s, so there are no guarantees in four years’ time. That’s why they’re fired up for this World Cup. Ji So-yeon, 32, who is preparing for her third World Cup, says: “This could be the last of the golden generation. We’ve been together for more than 10 years, so we want to go as high as we can.”

There are also many players with overseas experience. Lee Geum-min (29) said, “We are preparing for this tournament much more seriously than before. I had no experience playing with overseas players before. It’s different now. There are many players who have played overseas, so I am confident that we will be able to show a good performance.” There is also Casey Pair, who is the youngest athlete ever (16 years and 1 month) and the first mixed-race athlete. It’s a perfect blend of old and new.

The team opened their World Cup campaign with a 2-1 win over Haiti on 8 August. Armed with Bell’s trademark high-intensity training, the team is determined to do well at the tournament.

“The players are all looking forward to the World Cup,” said Bell. We know it will be difficult, but we will use our fighting spirit to achieve our goals,” he said in Korean.
