Lee: Koreans must play without fear

[Women's World Cup] Lee Young-joo recalled the 'Miracle of Kazan' "We can do it too"

"It's a small gap, but I'll try to pierce it... I also did Japan, but I wonder if we can't"

“The players talked about the game. They said, ‘We can do it too, there is hope.’"

Young-Joo Lee (Madrid CFF), midfielder of the women’s national soccer team, said the 2023 International Football Federation (FIFA) Australia/New Zealand World Cup was on the verge of being eliminated. 
Although he was in trouble, he showed fighting spirit, saying, "There is hope."

The match Lee Young-joo mentioned is the 'Miracle of Kazan' that the men's national team achieved at the 온라인카지노
2018 World Cup in Russia.

The men's national team, led by Shin Tae-yong at the time, played the 3rd group stage match between the strong team Germany and Kazan, Russia, with two losses.

Shin Tae-yong eventually failed to advance to the round of 16, but achieved a miracle by defeating Germany 2-0.

On the 1st, Lee Young-joo met with reporters at the Rydges Campbelltown Hotel in New South Wales, Australia, the national team's base camp, and said strongly that the women's team could achieve a thrilling victory against Germany.

Lee Young -joo predicted the 'Miracle in Brisbane', saying,

"Director (Colin Bell) told me that if there is even this much hope, you should never give up. It's a small gap, but I'll try to break through it."

The women's national team, led by coach Bell, will play the final group match against Germany at the Brisbane Stadium in Queensland, Australia on the 3rd.

However, the situation is more difficult than Shin Tae-yong five years ago.

The national team, which was the first team to lose two games in Group H, can look to the round of 16 only if they win by more than five goals against Germany.

In addition, Colombia must defeat Morocco to advance to the round of 16.

Lee Young-joo, who plays in Spain, pointed out that neighboring Japan also defeated Spain.

The day before, in the final match of Group C of the group stage, Japan defeated powerful Spain 4-0, held by Alexia Putellas (Barcelona).

Lee Young-joo said, "I was surprised. When I scored one or two goals, I thought, ' Japan has prepared well.'

I don't want to go," he said. "Spanish defenders are a bit slow, but I think they captured that part well," he said.

At the same time, he added, "I have often stuck with Japanese players.

I think that's why I have more confidence."

Lee Young-joo was not called up to the national team for a while due to an injury after being heavily employed under the Bell coaching system.

He showed enthusiasm ahead of this World Cup by visiting the Paju NFC (National Team Training Center) in May, three weeks before the national team call, and training with coach Bell to improve his physical condition.

Lee Young-joo said, "I was happy at that time. I waited for this time, so the hard training didn't feel too hard."

Lee Young-joo has yet to step on the ground in this tournament.

He said, "I think it was a pity for the players who could only show this much on such a good stage.

The view from the outside was the same," he said.

He added that he was ready to play in Germany.

Lee Young-joo said, “I felt like I really wanted to play while watching the first and second games. It was hard to watch the game.” added.
