The South Korean women’s national soccer team will play its final domestic trial.
The Korea Football Association (KFA) announced on Tuesday that the South Korean women’s national team, led by head coach Colleen Bell, will host Haiti on July 8 in an exhibition match that will double as a World Cup qualifier. The venue and time of the match are still to be determined.
It will be the first time South Korea will face Haiti in an A-match. Haiti, currently ranked 53rd in the FIFA Women’s Rankings, qualified for its first Women’s World Cup after defeating Senegal and Chile in the intercontinental playoffs.
They will be drawn in Group D at the World Cup, where they will face England, Denmark, and China.
The team participated in the Arnold Clarke 메이저사이트 Cup in England earlier this year, where they faced England, Belgium, and Italy. In April, the team played two domestic friendlies against Zambia.
The team is set to convene for the World Cup in June. The team will play Haiti in an exhibition match, followed by a send-off ceremony with fans on June 9, before traveling to Australia on June 10. There will also be an additional exhibition game in Australia.
South Korea is in Group H at the World Cup. They will open the tournament against Colombia in Sydney on July 25, before facing Morocco in Adelaide on July 30 and Germany in Brisbane on August 3.
“The match against Haiti is the final step in our preparation for the World Cup,” said Women’s National Team Head Coach Colleen Bell. “It will allow us to assess the players’ physical and tactical fitness and ensure we are optimized for our first match against Colombia. It is also the last chance for players to make the final 23-man roster and we look forward to a great send-off match in front of a stadium full of fans.”
