Women’s national soccer team head coach Colleen Bell has vowed to win the quarterfinals of the Hangzhou 2022 Asian Games.
South Korea, coached by Colleen Bell, defeated Hong Kong 5-0 in the third match of the women’s football Group E on Monday at the Wenzhou Olympic Sports Center Stadium in Wenzhou, Zhejiang Province, China.
Bell’s quarterfinal opponent will be North Korea as they look to win the Asian Games title in Hangzhou. The two teams will meet at the Wenzhou Sports Center Stadium at 5:30 p.m. KST on Sept. 30.
“I think it’s a must-win game,” Bell told the Korean Football Association after the game, saying he understood the importance of the match against North Korea.
He also expressed his frustration at having to face the East Asian giants in “difficult conditions” despite topping Group E with three wins.
“I personally don’t understand the system where each of the 16 teams in this tournament has to play a different number of games,” 바카라사이트 Bell said, noting that North Korea was given two days to prepare for their next game (against South Korea), while we only had one day (to rest).
“Also, we played three group games and they only played two. “We have only one day to prepare, but we will do our best,” he said, questioning the way the tournament was organized.
The tournament was originally scheduled to feature 17 teams.
The organizers divided the groups into five, with three teams each in Groups A to C and four teams each in Groups D and E.
However, Cambodia suddenly withdrew just before the tournament, leaving four teams competing in Groups D-E, which included South Korea and Japan, and only two teams in Group C, which included North Korea.
Normally, a 16-team tournament would be divided into four groups of four teams to ensure an equitable number of matches, but due to the tight schedule, the organizers kept the groupings the same.
Bell was pleased with the team’s performance, which included three wins.
“The players played well, and Moon Eun-joo’s first goal (against Hong Kong), I’m happy,” Bell said in Korean, according to the KFA. 슬롯사이트
