Morocco match D-1
Bad news struck the women’s national soccer team led by head coach Colin Bell. Goalkeeper Ryu Ji-soo (26, Seoul City Hall) suffered an ankle ligament rupture injury. The Korean women’s national soccer team will play the second leg of the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup Group H group stage against Morocco at Hindmarsh Stadium in Adelaide, Australia on the 30th (Korean time). As Korea lost 0-2 in the first game against Colombia on the 25th, it must win to have a chance to advance to the round of 16.
The day before the game, the sad news came. Ryu Ji-soo, who injured her ankle in training the previous day, was diagnosed with a ligament rupture. An official from the Korea Football Association (KFA) said on the 29th, “Ryu Ji-soo’s injury turned out to be an ankle ligament rupture and sprain. It is a situation that requires a recovery period of about 4 weeks.”
Whether or not to return has not yet been decided. Ryu Ji-soo plans to stay with the team while watching the progress. 토토 However, it is said that he is highly likely to accompany him to Adelaide, where the match against Morocco will be held. Ryu Ji-soo, born in 1997, was named to the World Cup squad for the first time. Although he has no A match experience yet, he was called by coach Bell as the third goalkeeper after Yoon Young-geul (BK Hecken) and Kim Jeong-mi (Incheon Hyundai Steel).
However, Ryu Ji-soo collapsed due to an unexpected injury, ending his first World Cup in a sad way. During team training, he blocked Park Eun-seon (Seoul City Hall)’s shot, but suffered a shock to his left ankle, which was not good. He was carried off the field by the coaches and is known to have even stolen tears.
Meanwhile, the national team will move to Adelaide and face Morocco on the 30th. Korea, which was beaten by Colombia, and Morocco, which lost 0-6 to Germany, are also aiming for their first win. Since defeat is a guillotine match that is virtually equivalent to being eliminated from the group stage, a fierce match is expected. In the FIFA rankings, Korea ranks 17th, one step higher than Morocco
