Colleen Bell’s squad returns home after failing to reach the Women’s World Cup Round of 16.
The women’s national soccer team, led by head coach Colleen Bell, returned home on Friday through Incheon International Airport. “I’m very disappointed that we didn’t make it to the round of 16,” Bell said at a press conference shortly after returning home.스포츠토토
The team was aiming for a spot in the round of 16 at the tournament, but after losing both games against Colombia and Morocco, they were eliminated from the group with a 1-1 draw and two losses before drawing their final game against Germany.
“Against Colombia, we were fine in the first 30 minutes, but after conceding a PK, the players got nervous. It was the same against Morocco. But I’m happy with the performance and the result against Germany,” Bell said.
“As a coach, you have to take responsibility for your team. It is also my role to analyze the reasons for the results of this tournament. I will analyze the reasons for the results with a cool head.”
“This is a very important time for Korean women’s soccer. There are many players with good skills, but there are also players who are approaching or have passed their 30s.” “It is also important to see where and how the younger players are doing. It’s something we need to work on over time.”
He also mentioned mind control. “We’ve seen players struggle with high expectations,” Bell said. “They need to be able to compete, be exposed to stressful situations and be able to cope. World women’s soccer continues to evolve. Fans’ expectations and demands are rising, and players must be able to keep up.”
Meanwhile, with the World Cup now complete, Colleen Bell will turn her attention to preparations for next month’s Asian Games in Hangzhou.
