Women’s soccer reintroduces 2007-born pair for next year’s Paris Olympics

Following the World Cup, South Korea Women’s National Team head coach Colleen Bell has brought back 2007-born Casey Eugene Fair for the second round of qualifying for the Paris 2024 Olympic Games. Ji So-yeon (Suwon FC), Lee Young-joo (Madrid CFF), and Lee Keum-min (Brighton) will also join the women’s soccer team as they continue their dream of qualifying for their first ever 카지노사이트 Olympic Games.

The Korea Football Association (KFA) on Tuesday announced a 22-player roster for the women’s national team ahead of the second Asian group stage of the Paris 2024 Olympic Games in Xiamen, China, from June 26 to July 1. Unlike men’s soccer, women’s soccer does not have an age limit.

The players will begin training at the Gyeonggi National Training Center (NFC) in Paju, Gyeonggi Province, on Nov. 16. Overseas players Lee Geum-min, Lee Young-joo, and Choi Yoo-ri (Burimeng City) will join the team in China. They will depart for Xiamen, China, on the 23rd for the final match.

A total of 12 teams will compete in the group stage, divided into three groups of four teams. Four teams – the three top teams from each group and the best-performing second-place team from each group – will then advance to the final round to compete for the two allotted tickets to Asia.

The Belles will play their first game in Group B against Thailand on Nov. 26 and their second against North Korea on Nov. 29. They will play the third game against China on March 1.

Bell has recalled Pair to the squad. At the recent FIFA Women’s World Cup 2023 in Australia-New Zealand, she became the youngest player in World Cup history, male or female. She is the daughter of a Korean mother and an American father.

Ji So-yeon, who played at this year’s World Cup, along with Spain’s Lee Young-joo and England’s Lee Keum-min, will also be traveling with China. Kwon Da-eun (Ulsan Hyundai Go), who is the same age as Pair, was left off the final World Cup roster. Cho So-hyun (Birmingham City), who suffered an ankle injury, was not included.

Women’s soccer has been an Olympic sport since 1996 in Atlanta, but South Korea has never qualified for the Games.
