Korea used the Arnold Clark Cup as a mock test to gain experience with European countries ahead of the 2023 Women’s World Cup in Australia and New Zealand, which opens in July this year. Korea, England, Belgium and Italy will participate in the Arnold Clark Cup. However, after losing 0-4 to England in the first game, Korea felt the wall of Europe even more as they were unable to use their strength against Belgium. On the 23rd, Korea will play the 3rd match against Italy, ranked 17th in the FIFA rankings. Italy lost 1-2 to England after losing 1-2 to Belgium.
Korea pledged victory by starting Ji So-yeon (Suwon FC), who was unable to play in the aftermath of an injury in the first match against England. In the 10th minute of the first half, Lee Geum-min’s strong shot near the arc hit the opposing defender and deflected, shaking the net. Korea, however, was unable to use its strength in the attack due to strong pressure from Belgium and gave up the initiative. Korea eventually conceded a goal to Tessa Büllart in the 46th minute of the first half, 1-1, and gave the winning goal to Tiné de Caigny in the 23rd minute of the second half.
