Korea’s Shocking Defeat to Morocco

Fox Sports of the U.S. selected the top three unexpected events since the 2003 U.S. Women’s World Cup on its official social networking service SNS channel on the 3rd, all of which occurred at the 2023 Australia-New Zealand Women’s World Cup.

The first match that the media picked was the match between South Korea 17th in the FIFA rankings and Morocco 72nd.

The South Korean women’s national soccer team, led by head coach Colin Bell, lost 0-1 in the second Group H match against Morocco at Hindmarsh Stadium in Adelaide, Australia, on July 30. 토토사이트 South Korea, which lost the first point to its opponent Iptissam Zredi in the sixth minute of the first half, poured 16 shots throughout the game, but lost without recording a single effective shot.

South Korea is likely to be eliminated from the group stage as it lost 0-2 in the first game against Colombia earlier, marking its second loss in the tournament. The third match against the world’s strongest Germany 2nd place is ahead, but in order to advance to the round of 16, we must beat Germany by more than five goals and Morocco must lose to Colombia. The odds are not high.

South Korea showed lethargic performance in the tournament and voices of self-reflection are heard one after another, as Bell unusually criticized the Korean women’s soccer system as well as the players in two games. The match against Morocco was a game that added fuel to it.

Before the tournament, Ji So-yeon vowed to be the hero of the unexpected event like Morocco, which wrote the African team’s first semi-final myth at the 2022 Qatar World Cup, but rather suffered a lethargic and shocking defeat to Morocco.

However, Korea is not the only victim in this competition. Zambia 77th, which allowed 10 runs in two matches in the warm-up match against South Korea before the tournament, caused a stir by beating Costa Rica 36th, a strong team in North and Central America, 3-1 in Group C. Costa Rica also lost to Japan and Spain, and was eliminated from the group stage with the lowest loss in all three games. Zambia built its pride by winning one game.

A more shocking surprise took place on the 2nd. In Group G, South Africa 54th came from behind to win a dramatic 3-2 victory over Italy 16th. In the game, which was tight 2-2, Tembik Gatlana scored the winning goal in the 47th minute of extra time in the second half, causing an unexpected victory over Italy.

With this victory, South Africa advanced to the round of 16 for the first time in history, and Italy suffered humiliation 24 years after being eliminated from the group stage of the U.S. Women’s World Cup in 1999. Fox Sports was surprised, saying, All three of the best unexpected events of the Women’s World Cup ever occurred in 2023.

Meanwhile, South Korea will challenge Germany at 7 p.m. on the 3rd at Suncorp Stadium in Brisbane, Australia.
