“High-intensity training, effective” Head coach Bell satisfied with the reverse win against Haiti
Coach Colin Bell, who leads the Korean women’s national soccer team, analyzed that there was a result of high-intensity training in the warm-up match against Haiti ahead of the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup in Australia and New Zealand.
After the evaluation match against Haiti held on the afternoon of the 8th at the Seoul World Cup Stadium, Bell said, “It started out difficult, but the players got stronger as they played.” “I think that’s part of high-intensity training,” he said. “It was important to be able to be active for a long time with intensity.”
The first half was lackluster. In the 16th minute of the game, Haitian Nerilia Mondesir gave up the opening goal.
The second half was the opposite. In the 6th minute of the second half, Ji So-yeon (Suwon FC) took the lead after an equalizer from a penalty kick. Breaking through the left and right sides survived, and the performance that was not in the first half came out.
In the 36th minute of the second half, Seulgi Jang (Incheon Hyundai Steel) scored a come-from-behind goal with a fantastic right-footed mid-range shot from a set piece. Korea finished the warm-up match, which served as the World Cup kick-off ceremony, with a 2-1 come-from-behind victory in the presence of home fans.바카라사이트
“What we’ve learned is the need for quick defensive transitions,” Bell said. He added, “We will make up for this a lot before the World Cup.”
At the same time, he mentioned that the recent trend in women’s soccer is to have fast players and strong physical players. He asked to be careful, saying, “We have to prepare well for the parts we have not experienced in our league.”
After leaving for Australia on the afternoon of the 10th, the national team will play an evaluation match against the Netherlands on the 16th. South Korea (ranked 17th in the FIFA rankings), which belongs to Group H in the World Cup group stage, will play the first match against Colombia (ranked 25th) in Sydney, Australia on July 25th. Then, on July 30th in Adelaide, Morocco (72nd place) and on August 3rd in Brisbane, Germany (2nd place) will play the third game.
