The women’s soccer team returned ahead of schedule through Incheon International Airport on the 5th.
The national team went into this World Cup dreaming of the best ever record, surpassing the 2015 World Cup in Canada to advance to the round of 16.
Excluding Germany (2nd) in the FIFA rankings, the national team (17th) is higher than Colombia (25th) and Morocco (72nd), so it is predicted that it will be possible to advance to the round of 16.
However, the national team finished the tournament with a shabby record of 1 draw and 2 losses.
Coach Bell looked back and said, “It’s very unfortunate that we didn’t advance to the round of 16.
In particular, coach Bell said, “In the game against Colombia, the first half was fine until the 30th minute, but after the penalty kick, the players froze.지울프-토토
The national team lost 0-2 to Colombia in the first game, which was a watershed in the round of 16.
In the second game against Morocco, Korea also lost 0-1.
Coach Bell pointed out that “the players were nervous” as if the aftermath of the first game loss continued.
In the last game against Germany, the national team recorded a 1-1 draw.
He also scored the first goal in his World Cup.
In response, coach Bell said, “The performance and results are sufficiently satisfactory.
I played the game properly for the first time in over a year, and I looked good.”
The draw in the final game, which resulted in Germany, second in the FIFA rankings, being eliminated from the group stage for the first time in history,
was meaningful, but the fact that it did not win a single game does not change.
Coach Bell said, “As a manager, I have responsibility for the team,” and “I will proceed with the analysis with a cool head.
I will reflect what I learned and experienced at this competition in the future.”
Cho So-hyun, the only one to score, laughed, saying, “I knew from the article that it was Korea’s first goal,” and “Rather than I thought,
the players were all desperate at that time, and I think I saw results at the right timing.
“It was regrettable that we couldn’t fully show our style and skills in the matches against Colombia and Morocco,” he said.
Lastly, Cho So-hyun said, “There was talk of poor physical condition and nervousness after the first and second games, but being able to show my level at the World Cup is a real skill,” and evaluated it as “still not a frog in the well.”
Chun Ga-ram said, “I prepared hard and wanted to stay for a long time, but as a result, I have a lot of regrets.
He added, “I’m on the small side among Korean players, but my strength is that I don’t feel intimidated when fighting against foreign players with strong physical strength.”
