Ahead of the 2023 International Football Federation (FIFA) Australia-New Zealand Women’s World Cup, the women’s national soccer team will have their last domestic evaluation match against Haiti.
The Korea Football Association announced on the 30th, “The women’s national soccer team led by coach Colin Bell will play a friendly evaluation match against ‘North and Central America’ Haiti on July 8.” The venue and time of the match have not been decided.
This is the first time the women’s national team faces Haiti in an A-match. Haiti, currently ranked 53rd in the FIFA Women’s Rankings, defeated Senegal and Chile in the intercontinental playoffs to qualify for the Women’s World Cup finals for the first time. In the World Cup, they are in Group D and face England, Denmark and China.
Bel said through the association, “The match against Haiti is the final step for our national team, which has been preparing for the World Cup. It is also the last chance for the players to be included in the final 23-man roster. We look forward to a great farewell match in a stadium full of fans.”
The women’s national team, which participated in the Arnold Clark Cup held in England earlier this year and faced strong England, Belgium and Italy, played two domestic evaluation matches against Zambia in April.
The national team will be convened in June and go into final domestic training in preparation for the World Cup. The association added, “After holding a launch event with fans on the 9th, the day after the match against Haiti, we plan to depart for Australia on the 10th. We are planning an additional evaluation match in Australia.”메이저사이트
