Three months away from the Women’s World Cup… Chance to recharge national team confidence

With the opening of the 2023 Women’s World Cup in Australia and New Zealand approaching in three months, Belho is going to recharge his confidence.

The Korean women’s national soccer team, led by head coach Colin Bell, will have an evaluation match against Zambia at 7 p.m. on the 7th at Suwon World Cup Stadium. On the 11th, the second match will be held at Mir Stadium in Yongin.

This evaluation match is like a mock test in preparation for Morocco, an African team belonging to the same group in the World Cup group stage. South Korea is in Group H along with Germany, Morocco and Colombia, and Zambia is in Group C with Spain, Costa Rica and Japan. Korea ranks 17th in the FIFA rankings, higher than Zambia (77th), but this is the first time they have faced each other.

Korea, which has failed to win 4 matches in a row including 3 losses in A matches recently, needs to boost its confidence through the game against Zambia. Korea, which won 1 win and 1 draw in two consecutive matches against New Zealand in November last year, participated in the Arnold Clark Cup, a four-nation friendly in February, but lost to England, Belgium and Italy. 먹튀검증
