The Korean women’s national team, led by coach Colin Bell, drew 0-0 in the first leg of the friendly match against the United States held at Children’s Mercy Park in Kansas City, Kansas, USA on the 22nd at 9:00 am (Korean time). The draw put the United States’ home winning streak to a halt at 22 games.

Overall, the home team, the United States, took the lead, but the Korean players’ performances were not formidable. Considering that his opponent is ranked No. 1 in the world and he has never won in 13 fights so far, the draw was also a huge achievement.

After the match, Ji So-yeon said, “It was a very difficult match. However, all the players worked hard until the end and were able to finish in a draw. We played mainly defensively, but if we had played defensively and quickly and concisely, we could have created more good chances. It’s a pity for that part,” he said, expressing regret for the draw.

4 draws and 10 losses against the United States including this match. However, under the leadership of Bell recently, he showed good performances against the United States one after another. Regarding this, Ji So-yeon said, “The game against the US is always difficult. Two years ago there were a lot of spectators and communication was difficult, but I felt it was difficult today. He praised his colleagues.

Lastly, Ji So-yeon said, “In the American crowd, I saw Korean fans. Thank you for coming and cheering for us. The American fans also warmly welcomed us. It was a fun game. We will prepare well for the parts that didn’t work in the first round and we will play better in the second round. I will do my best to make it happen,” he said, preparing for the second round.
