Jang Seul-gi welcomed the tournament, saying, “It’s an opportunity to show the strong teams what kind of team Korea is.”
Jang Seul-gi, who had field training ahead of the tournament, explained, “Coach Bell emphasized physical strength the most. He also refined his defensive organization. We also did a lot of tactical training in preparation for England.”
Kang Chae-rim (Incheon Hyundai Steel) also threw a vote through the association, saying, “It’s a challenging position, but if you show confidence without being intimidated, there will be good results.”
Kang Chae-rim, who is about to face the second World Cup, said, “In the 2019 World Cup, when I participated as the youngest, I only did what I wanted to do. But this time, I am preparing to melt into the team with a more mature image. I will get it,” revealing a strong determination.
The women’s national team is in Group H along with Germany, Colombia and Morocco at the World Cup. The first game of the World Cup will be against Colombia at the Sydney Football Stadium on July 25th.
