This year, the Italian and Belgian women’s national teams will compete against Korea and England and face each other.
Korea will face off against England on February 16, Belgium on February 19, and Italy on February 22. Matches will be held in Milton Keynes, Coventry and Bristol respectively.
Ji So-yeon, the representative of the national team, who was unable to join the schedule from November to December due to an ankle injury, has returned to this list, and Lee Geum-min and Park Ye-eun, who play in England, are also listed.
Choi Yu-ri, Jang Seul-gi, Kim Hye-ri, Kim Jeong-mi (above Hyundai Steel) and other existing key players, including ‘young blood’ Cheon Ga-ram (Ulsan University of Science) were also selected.
However, midfielders Cho So-hyun (Tottenham) and Lee Young-joo (Madrid CFF) failed to participate in this call due to injuries, and Lee Min-ah (Hyundai Steel), who played a big role in the New Zealand evaluation match and the WK League championship match last November, was also unable to participate this time due to injury.
Only 23 players will participate in Ulsan training, and Lee Geum-min, Park Ye-eun, and goalkeeper Yoon Young-geul, who are staying there to join an overseas club, plan to join them locally.
Coach Bell said, “I think the Arnold Clark Cup will be an opportunity to adapt to the European style. All three opposing teams will have a lot to learn from their physical play.”메이저사이트
He continued, “It will be a good place to learn in the process of preparing for Germany, which we will face in the World Cup group stage, and other European teams that we are likely to meet later.”
“Most of our players are in pre-season, but players from other teams who will compete in the Arnold Clark Cup are in the middle of the season and it could work against us,” he said.
However, he emphasized, “It is important to take the time to check the players’ condition and build it up. I will check it well from Ulsan.”
