Women’s soccer, scoreless against North Korea… When you are 1st in the group and
2nd in the group, you can’t be safe in the ranking competition.
You have to catch China and get 7 points to confirm 1st place in the group.
The Korean women’s soccer team, aiming to advance to the Olympics for the first time, is making all-out efforts to defeat China, its ‘difficult enemy’. Korea, currently ranked first in the group, must defeat China. This is because if you fall to second place in your group, you cannot be at ease because the final ranking will be determined through complex calculations with other groups.
The Korean women’s soccer team, led by coach Colin Bell ( pictured ), is performing well as first place in Group B, also known as the ‘Group of Death’, in the Asian second qualifying round for the Paris Olympics. According to the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) on the 30th, Korea (1 win, 1 draw, 4 points) is ranked first in Group B in the 2024 Paris Olympics Asian second qualifying round. This is the result of a complete defeat of Thailand (10 to 1) on the 26th and a draw (0 to 0) with North Korea the day before. They have the same number of points as North Korea (1 win, 1 draw), but are ahead by 8 goals in scoring.
Belho swallowed up the disappointment of being eliminated in the quarterfinals of the Hangzhou Asian Games following the group stage of this year’s FIFA Australia-New Zealand World Cup. This time, while veterans such as Ji So-yeon (Suwon FC) are still alive and well, young players such as Casey Eugene Fair (independent) and Cheon Garam (KSPO) have added their strength and given the green light to head to Paris.
It was also a great achievement to record a clean sheet against North Korea, who lost 1-4 in the quarterfinals of the Hangzhou Asian Games. South Korea is far behind North Korea in its previous record with 1 win, 4 draws, and 16 losses. They have not conceded a goal to North Korea for the first time in 18 years since the 2005 East Asian Cup, where their only win was 1-0.
However, I am worried about the remaining games. South Korea will face China and North Korea will face Thailand in the final match of the second preliminary round. There is a high probability that North Korea will secure its second win by defeating Thailand, the weakest team. Korea can secure first place in the group only by beating China and reaching the 7-point milestone.
Four teams advance to the final preliminary round. In the second preliminary round, in which 12 teams are divided into groups A to C, the three first-place teams and the best second-place team from each group advance. Only the two teams that win the final preliminary round will win tickets to the Paris Olympics finals, which are assigned to Asian countries.토스카지노 도메인
Australia (Group A) and Japan (Group C) are in first place in their group with two wins each (6 points). The problem is the battle for second place. Group A’s Philippines (1 win, 1 loss) and Group C’s Uzbekistan (1 win, 1 loss, 3 points) are likely to record 6 points by defeating underdogs Iran and India, respectively, in the final match of the second preliminary round.
If Korea draws with China, it will only have 5 points. It will be difficult to advance to the final preliminary round by finishing second in the group. Korea faces China on November 1. In terms of their previous record against opponents, they are at a disadvantage with 5 wins, 7 draws, and 29 losses.
