Park Eun-seon (36, Sejong Sports Toto), who dominated the game after being replaced in the second half, showed confidence.
The women’s national soccer team, led by head coach Colin Bell, won 5-2 in a friendly match against Zambia held at Suwon World Cup Stadium at 7:00 pm on the 7th at the invitation of Shinsegae E-Mart.
On this day, Korea was unable to keep the opening goal of Cho So-hyun (Tottenham Hotspur) and ended the first half with a 1-2 score. He scored four goals in the second half and turned the game around. Lee Geum-min (Brighton & Hove Albion) and Cho So-hyun each scored multiple goals.
With the start of the second half by Park Eun-sun, the substitution became a godsend. Park Eun-seon, who started as a striker, actively confronted the opponent’s defense at the forefront. He defended the ball with strong physical post plays. He accurately dropped the ball into the header and helped Lee Geum-min score. Just before the end of the game, she scored her fifth goal for Korea.
Directors also praised it. Zambia’s coach also cited Park Eun-sun as one of the best players at a post-game press conference, saying, “Park Eun-sun, who was put in in the second half, was a threat.” Coach Bell smiled broadly, saying, “Park Eun-sun turned the game around today. He is a great player. He has put in a lot of effort throughout the year.”온라인바카라
Park Eun-seon, who we met in the mixed zone after the game, said, “It felt good that the team won and even scored a goal.”
Before the replacement was put in, Bell’s order was also revealed directly. Park Eun-sun explained, “Coach Bell wanted me to play in the center rather than the side in a counterattack situation. He focused on keeping the ball and connecting with headers or physical fights. If a cross came up, he wanted to score a goal.”
Korea advanced to the finals of the Women’s World Cup co-hosted by Australia and New Zealand next year. Group H faces Morocco, Colombia and Germany. The friendly match against Zambia is a mock test against Morocco.
It is Park Eun-seon who wore national team clothes for the first time in about 7 years last year under the Bell coaching system. After the game against Zambia, coach Bell raised the thumbs up for Eun-sun Park’s performance. Park Eun-sun laughed, saying, “I am grateful to the coach. He invited me to the national team after a long time. It is an honor to give him a chance. I will work hard. I did not have the heart to give up. Every time I came to the national team, I wanted to enjoy it.”
Regarding the possibility of participating in the World Cup, he expressed his aspirations, saying, “When I came to the national team, I felt that it would always work out better than anxiety. I am confident that the skills of the players have improved a lot.”
