6-0 win against Chinese Taipei on the 6th. Easy victory expected against weak Uzbekistan due to advantageous position
The Korean Under-20 (U-20) women’s soccer team, which achieved its first win in the 2024 Asian Football Confederation (AFC) U-20 Asian Cup against Taiwan, is aiming to advance to the semifinals.

Korea, led by coach Park Yoon-jung, will play the third match of Group A against the host nation, Uzbekistan, at JAR Stadium in Tashkent, Uzbekistan, at 5 p.m. (Korean time) on the 9th.

Park Yun-Jeong, who suffered a 1-2 comeback loss in the first game against Australia on the 3rd, recorded a 6-0 win against Taiwan on the 6th, recording 1 win and 1 loss (3 points). They are in second place in the group after Australia (6 points), which took first place in the group after defeating Korea and Uzbekistan side by side.

Taiwan, which had won 2-0 against Uzbekistan in the first game, had the same points as Korea with 1 win and 1 loss (3 points), but was pushed out of the winner-win rule and ranked 3rd. Uzbekistan is at the bottom of the group with 2 losses (0 points). 스포츠 토토사이트

In this competition, if the points are the same, the relative record and goal difference between the teams are considered. Accordingly, Korea won 6-0 against Taiwan and gained an advantage in the race to advance to the semifinals.

If they defeat Uzbekistan, their chances of advancing to the semifinals increase with 2 wins and 1 loss.

Considering Australia’s strength, the possibility of losing to Taiwan is not high, so Korea’s chances of advancing to the tournament are high.

Even if Taiwan wins the final match, there is hope for Korea to advance to the next round. If Taiwan defeats Australia, Korea, Australia, and Taiwan will each have 2 wins and 1 loss. Even if this happens, Korea can advance to the tournament ahead in terms of points scored and wins.

Accordingly, Park Yun-Jeong is expected to advance to the semifinals without difficulty.

In terms of military power, Korea is stronger than Uzbekistan. In addition, in the friendly match against Uzbekistan played ahead of this tournament, they won 5-0 and 7-0, respectively.

In addition, Uzbekistan lost 0-2 to Taiwan, which Korea defeated 6-0.

This competition will be held in Tashkent, Uzbekistan until the 16th.

Eight countries will participate and be divided into two groups of four teams each. After the group stage, the four teams ranked 1st and 2nd in each group will advance to the tournament.

Only those who place in the top four in this tournament will receive the right to participate in the FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup to be held in Colombia in September.

Starting with this FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup, the number of participating countries expanded from 16 to 24, and the number of World Cup spots allocated to Asia also increased from 3 to 4.

As long as there are no major variables, Korea is expected to get a ticket to the World Cup.

Accordingly, Park Yoon-jung set a goal to win her championship. South Korea has not won this competition since 2004 and 2013.

Coach Park said, “We set our goal to win this Asian Cup, and in the short term, I think our goal is to win every game. “If we do our best in every game, we will be able to get the results we want,” he said. 슬롯게이밍
