Korean women’s football has taken the first step in preparing for the Women’s World Cup in Australia and New Zealand in July.
The national team, led by coach Colin Bell (62), started training for the first time in the new year at the auxiliary stadium of Ulsan Munsu Stadium on the 30th.스포츠토토
The national team, which set up a base camp in Ulsan, will depart for England on February 9 and participate in the Arnold Clark Cup, a friendly competition between four countries.
In this tournament hosted by the England Football Association, starting with England (February 17), the women’s Euro 2022 champion and host, Belgium (20th) and Italy (23rd) will face each other in succession. It is a good opportunity for Korea to check its competitiveness as it prepares for the Women’s World Cup.
Director Bell met with the reporters that day and said, “I have high expectations as it is the first call of the year,” and “I think I started well while training from this morning. It is also very good that the players can join earlier than the A-match period and train together.”
Coach Bell presented four goals in this training.
He said, “We are trying to focus on training our players to look around first before catching the ball.”
Coach Bell expressed pride in the players who have been developing rapidly since he took office. “Our players have improved both tactically and physically. He also said, “Confidence is a strength to the extent that the players believe in themselves,” he said. “This was possible because we had good training.”
However, Bell did not forget to warn him that he should not be satisfied with his current position. “We have room to grow a little bit more,” said Bell. When you go to the World Cup, you have to rise to a level you have never experienced in your life before,” he said. “The players themselves have to break the wall. Only with that determination and sacrifice can success be achieved,” he said.
