2-0 defeat to Colombia.Round of 16 ‘Red Light’

In the first group match of the FIFA Women’s World Cup, Korea lost 2-0 to Colombia. A red light came on the way to the round of 16.

The national team continued its good atmosphere by pressing Colombia hard at the beginning of the game, but the flow was taken away in an instant.

The opponent’s shot hit defender Shim Seo-yeon’s arm and a penalty kick was declared, and Usme scored the first goal in the 30th minute of the first half.

And he allowed an additional goal in nine minutes.

Goalkeeper Yoon Young-gle failed to hit a surprise shot by 18-year-old Shin Sung-Kaiseido, who was considered an object of caution.

The national team, which swallowed the disappointment of Lee Geum-min’s decisive header at the end of the first half, put in a series of strikers, including 36-year-old veteran Park Eun-sun, in the second half.

16-year-old Casey Eugene Fair, a mixed-race player, set the record for the youngest World Cup appearance ever.

But in the end, the goal was not scored, and our team lost 2-0.

Korea, which ranked third in the group after Germany and Colombia, will play the second round against Morocco on Sunday.

In order to win a ticket to the round of 16, which is given up to the second place in the group, you must beat Morocco unconditionally and then weigh the “number of cases” in the strongest match against Germany.

The Philippines, which participated in the World Cup for the first time, caused an unexpected victory over host New Zealand.

Serena Bolden made history by scoring the Philippines’ first-ever goal and the winning goal.
