The women’s soccer team returned home ahead of schedule on Friday at Incheon International Airport. The team went into the World Cup with hopes of reaching the round of 16, their best result since the 2015 World Cup in Canada. Aside from Germany (No. 2), the national team (No. 17) was ranked higher than Colombia (No. 25) and Morocco (No. 72) in the FIFA rankings and was expected to advance to the round of 16. However, the team finished the tournament with one draw and two losses.
“We were very disappointed not to make it to the round of 16,” Bell said, noting that the team played well in the first 30 minutes against Colombia, but after conceding the penalty, the players froze. “We didn’t think we could turn the game around after the second goal,” Bell said. The team lost 0-2 against Colombia in their first game, a watershed moment in the Round of 16. In their second game, against Morocco, South Korea lost 0-1. “The players were nervous,” Bell said, as if the aftermath of the first game was still fresh.

In their last game, the team drew 1-1 against Germany. The team scored the opening goal for the first time in the World Cup. “I’m satisfied with the performance and the result,” Bell said, adding that young players Casey Eugene Fair (16-PDA) and Chun Garam (20-Hwacheon KSPO) played well, and Lee Young-joo (31-Madrid CFF) played well for the first time in more than a year.
The final draw was significant as it denied FIFA No. 2 Germany its first-ever group stage exit, but it doesn’t change the fact that they didn’t get a point. “As a coach, I have a responsibility to the team,” Bell said, “and I will analyze it with a cool head. We’ll take what we’ve learned and experienced from this tournament and apply it in the future.”

“I knew from the article that it was Korea’s first goal,” said Cho, who scored the only goal of the tournament, “but rather than thinking about that, I think the players were all eager for it, and I think my timing paid off.” “I was disappointed that we didn’t fully show our style and skills in the games against Colombia and Morocco,” he said, “but against Germany, the players wanted to show what we were made of and record a win and a goal.” Finally, Cho concluded, “There was talk of poor form and nervousness after the first and second games, but the real skill is to be able to show the amount you can raise at the World Cup,” adding that he was “still a frog in the well.”

“I’ve been preparing hard and wanted to stay for a long time, but as a result, I’m very disappointed,” said Cheon, adding, “I will prepare to become a stronger me so that I can be happy in four years.” “I’m one of the smaller Korean players, but my advantage is that I don’t feel intimidated when fighting with stronger foreign players,” he said, adding, “I’m also practicing a lot to surprise my opponents by using my bursts and speed.”
