The important thing is flexibility.”
Coach Colin Bell, who leads the Korean women’s national soccer team, made clear his goal of achieving good results in the 2023 FIFA Australia-New Zealand Women’s World Cup at a New Year’s press conference held at the Seoul Sinmunro Soccer Hall on the 26th. At the same time, he emphasized ‘flexibility’.
Belho is assigned to Group H in the competition to be held in July and competes with Germany, Morocco and Colombia. Korea is challenging to advance to the round of 16 at the World Cup for the first time in eight years since the 2015 tournament in Canada.
Previously, the national team reached the final at the 2022 Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Women’s Asian Cup held in April last year and won the right to advance to the upcoming World Cup.
The national team will train in Ulsan from the 30th to February 9th. Afterwards, he plans to move to England and gain experience by playing against European powerhouses such as England, Belgium and Italy in the Arnold Clark Cup. 스포츠토토
Coach Bell emphasized at the press conference that day that he would play ‘our own football’.
Earlier, at the FIFA 2022 Qatar World Cup, which ended on the 19th of last month, the men’s national soccer team achieved its goal of reaching the round of 16. It is a grade that can act as a motivation or a burden to Belho.
It seems to be regarded as ‘motivation’ rather than ‘burden’ to director Bell. He said, “It’s not motivating or burdensome. I was really happy that I showed a good image and was respected.” At the same time, he said, “The fact that I am in charge of the Korean women’s national team coach itself motivates me.”
Coach Bell said, “We can compete with any team as long as we play the way we want to. I hope you are not intimidated. I am confident that I will show a good performance in the World Cup,” he emphasized.
Then, he said that ‘flexibility’ would be the key. Coach Bell said, “It is most important to be flexible,” he said. The goal is to bring it in. It is very important to know which players can be used for this and how to deal with the game.”
Finally, Bell Gammok said, “I’m looking forward to it. I am confident that we will play a good game. The World Cup is also expected positively,” he said. “The first goal is to win in Colombia, the first leg.”
