North Korea ‘violent soccer’ shocking…U-20 women’s game against South Korea ‘intentionally hit’ → South Korea’s GK out of final

North Korea’s violent soccer has been exposed in the midst of its U-20 women’s soccer players, who are supposed to be living the dream. It was shocking to say the least.

Goalkeeper Woo Seo-bin, who was injured by a North Korean player’s punch during the South Korea-North Korea match, is in doubt for the final match against Australia.

Park Yoon-jung’s South Korea U-20 women’s soccer team lost 0-3 to North Korea in the semifinals of the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) U-20 Women’s Asian Cup 2024 at the 안전카지노사이트 Dostrych Stadium in Tashkent, Uzbekistan, on Wednesday.

South Korea, winners of the tournament in 2004 and 2013, finished second in Group A behind Australia with two wins and one loss, but were unable to get past the North Koreans, who have won two U-20 Women’s World Cup titles and been runners-up at the age group stage of women’s soccer.

South Korea, which has already qualified for the 2024 FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup, which is awarded to the top four teams, will face Australia in the third-place game on Saturday for third place.

Coach Park Yoon-jung entrusted goalkeeper Woo Seo-bin in goal. Jung Jung-jin, Nam Seung-eun, Park Je-ah, and Kim Kyu-yeon were in charge of the defense. In the midfield, Kang Eun-young, Kim Shin-ji, and Won Chae-eun lined up. Park Soo-soo and Kim Ji-hyun were deployed on the flanks, while Jeon Yoo-kyung led the attack together in the center.

The North Koreans were onslaught from the start, with 12 shots in the first half alone, including five on goal, to South Korea’s four shots on goal (one on target).

After goalkeeper Woo Seo-bin made several saves in the first half, including a header by Chae Eun-young in the 11th minute, South Korea surrendered the game-winning goal in the 45th minute to Choi Il-sun. Choi’s left-footed shot from the left side of the penalty area bounced slightly in front of goalkeeper Woo Seo-bin and into the back of the net.

To start the second half, South Korea brought on Bae Ye-bin and Uhm Min-kyung (Widok University) in an attempt to fight back, but conceded another goal six minutes into the second half through Jung Jeong-jeum.

South Korea has a long road ahead of it, and now there’s an injury variable. The injury occurred in North Korea’s shockingly violent style of soccer.

In the 11th minute of the second half, North Korean midfielder Choe Eun-young floated a ball to Choe Il-sun, who dived in between the defense. Choi Il-sun received the ball with his chest and controlled it with his feet. Nam Seung clung on to prevent Choi Il-sun from taking a shot, but in the process, Choi Il-sun fell down and “beat” South Korean goalkeeper Woo Seo-bin.(토토사이트)

It was an action that defies comprehension. Nam Seung-eun pushed Choi Il-sun’s body to contest the play, but Choi Il-sun didn’t lose his balance to the point where he fell after the ball went out. Rather, Choi Il-sun fell a beat too late after Woo Seo-bin caught the ball in his hands and hit him in the head.

It was intentional. It was a wild foul by North Korea that was hard to believe happened at the U-20 World Cup. If there was a video assistant referee (VAR), it would have been a red card.

North Korea’s violent behavior made it difficult for Park Yun-jeong-ho to use his starting goalkeeper Woo Seo-bin for the final match against Australia. After starting the first game against Australia and the second game against Chinese Taipei, Woo was rested against Uzbekistan, who used a rotation, and then started against North Korea. However, he was injured by North Korea’s violent soccer and is doubtful for the third-place game.

The good news is that Woo’s injury is not serious.

A Korean Football Association (KFA) official said, “It’s not a serious injury. It is understood that Woo Seo-bin is getting better,” said an official from the Korean Football Association (KFA), “but we will have to wait and see for the Australia game.” Woo isn’t required to play against Australia, as it’s a bonus game to determine third place after North Korea clinched a spot in the Women’s World Cup, but her chances of playing have been significantly reduced.

North Korean soccer has been making a comeback after a COVID-19 hiatus since last year’s Asian Games in Hangzhou, but the team has been playing “thug soccer” against South Korea, committing wild fouls in every game.

North and South Korea met in the quarterfinals of the Hangzhou Asian Games, and just three minutes into the match, North Korea’s Hong Sung-ok made a two-footed tackle on South Korean ace Ji So-yeon, sparking a scuffle between the two sides. North Korea has been intimidating Taekwondo fans with its martial arts-like soccer against South Korea since its return to the international stage, including elbowing and even punching during aerial ball battles.
