‘Total 2-10 defeat’ Zambia coach, “Korea was strong in all pressure-speed-pass”
Zambia coach Bruce Mwafe, who lost both matches against Korea in the warm-up match, praised Korea’s performance.
The Korean women’s national soccer team (ranked 17th in the FIFA rankings) led by coach Colin Bell defeated Zambia (ranked 77th in the FIFA rankings) in the second leg of the ‘Shinsegae E-Mart Invitational Women’s National Football Team Friendly Match’ held at Yongin Mir Stadium on the 11th at 7:00 pm. Recorded a -0 win. With this victory, Korea successfully completed mock tests ahead of the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup.
After the game, coach Bruce Mwafe said, “What I felt greatly during the two matches was that we were slower than Korea. Although we lost both matches by a large margin, I don’t think it was a bad result. It’s because I did it, and I have to work hard to improve.”
Zambia was completely defeated by South Korea with an aggregate score of 2-10 in the 2nd A match. In the last leg, they lost 2-5, and in the second leg, they lost 0-5 without scoring a single goal. Coach Mwafe analyzed that he struggled with Korea’s strong pressure and passing ability.
Coach Mwafe said, “There was a difference in tactics between the first game and the second game. I am satisfied because I scored two goals in the first game. Korea played a good game with strong forward pressure and forward passes. I played well, and I think I will continue to play well.” 온라인바카라
The impressive player was also Park Eun-sun. Park Eun-seon showed her class by leading Korea to a great victory by recording 2 goals and 1 assist that day. He created a chance using his strength and height from the front and scored with a direct line-breaking. Here, in the second half, he recorded goals and assists with overwhelming height and linked play, clearly proving why he was called the female Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
Regarding this, coach Mwafe said, “Park Eun-seon was put in in the second half of the first game and it was a difficult game. I prepared enough while preparing for the second game, but looking at the results, it seems that I did not prepare well. The players were definitely faster than our players.”
Regarding Lee Geum-min, who scored a hat-trick, coach Mwafe said, “Number 9 (Lee Geum-min) is a very good player. It was also impressive. Utilizing speed is a strength.”
