Korean women’s soccer will challenge Morocco for the first time at the 2023 FIFA World Cup in Australia and New Zealand. The Korean women’s national soccer team, led by coach Colin Bell, will play Morocco in the second round of Group H at Hindmarsh Stadium in Adelaide, South Australia, on the 30th at 1:30 pm (Korean time). Korea, aiming to advance to the round of 16 for the first time in eight years since the 2015 Canada Tournament, was in danger after losing 0-2 in the first match against Colombia on the 25th.
In addition, Germany in the same group defeated Morocco 6-0, and if Korea, currently in third place in the group, loses to Morocco, it is virtually certain that they will be eliminated from the group stage. As Korea, whose opponent in the final game 3 is Germany, must defeat Morocco. 토토사이트 The only time Korea has won points in the Women’s World Cup finals is in the 2015 Canada tournament in the second group stage match against Costa Rica (2-2 draw) and the third match against Spain (2-1 win). Morocco is the lowest in Group H with a FIFA ranking of 72nd. However, as 17th ranked Korea lost to 25th ranked Colombia, the ranking is meaningless. Rather, in the finals of the World Cup, all opponents should come out with a desperate determination that they are strong teams.
Morocco, the first Arab country to advance to the World Cup finals, is considered the weakest in this tournament. This is why Korea sees it as an opportunity to win and change the atmosphere. But carelessness is forbidden. Last year, the African Football Confederation Nations Cup won the runner-up and showed competitiveness. In particular, veteran striker Gizlan Shebak, who was selected as the MVP of the tournament, is the ‘No. In addition, Rosella Ayane, who is 180cm tall and has excellent aerial competition skills, is a player Korea should prepare for because of her weak physical condition. Morocco was selected for the adult national team, but England, a soccer powerhouse, was recognized for its skills enough to be selected for the national team by age group.
Morocco is also considering the match against Korea or Colombia as their first opportunity to win, so it is expected that they will engage in an all-out war. For Korea, it is better to go beyond victory and win the match against Morocco with as many goals as possible, as there may come a situation where the number of goals, such as goal difference and number of points, may need to be calculated depending on the results of the match between Germany and Colombia and the final group stage match.
Morocco’s weak point is its unstable defensive organization, as it conceded two goals with an own goal in the first match against Germany, which was defeated 0-6. At a press conference on the 28th, coach Bell pointed out the lack of experience of the players, saying, “The loss against Colombia was because the players were slow to judge.” In the end, Ji So-yeon, who set the record for the most goals with 67 goals in 146 A matches, as well as experienced players such as Cho So-hyun, Park Eun-seon, and Lee Geum-min, must come forward as the solution. In particular, Ji So-yeon’s performance, which plays the role of a link between offense and defense, is important. It is noteworthy whether Korea, which has no place to back down, will shake off the regret of losing the Colombia match and succeed in a turnaround in the Morocco match.
