Women’s soccer comes from behind to beat Haiti…Ji So-yeon, Jang Seul-ki score goals


The women’s soccer team competing in the World Cup in Australia and New Zealand has pulled off a thrilling upset against Haiti, a virtual Colombia, in an exhibition match.

Ji So-yeon’s equalizer and Jang Seul-ki’s come-from-behind wonder goal gave them the win.

Kwak Jun-young is the reporter.


The national team, which was repeatedly threatened by the opponent’s speed and physicality from the beginning of the match, conceded a goal in the 15th minute.

A pass from midfield into the right flank space was converted by Mondesir.

However, they equalized shortly after the start of the second half.

Cho So-hyun broke down the left flank and was tripped by a defender’s leg, and kicker Ji So-yeon neatly converted the penalty kick.

With momentum in their favor, the team pulled off a fantastic comeback in the 36th minute.

Ji So-yeon’s pass from a set piece found Jang Seul-ki with a mid-range shot, and the ball found its way into the corner of the opponent’s goal.

The final score was 2-1, a thrilling come-from-behind victory.

With the win against Haiti, Korea gained confidence heading into the final match against Colombia, their first opponent at the World Cup.

“It’s going to be a tough World Cup, but we’re going to do our best to challenge the four years of preparation our team has put in.”

But even with the win, there were still things to work on.

“The biggest issue is our lack of quick defensive transitions. That’s something we need to work on quickly in training.”

After the game, the women’s soccer team held a send-off ceremony to wish the team well in the World Cup.

The players circled the pitch with oversized flags and greeted fans before departing for the land of showdown.

The team will depart for Australia on Sept. 10 and play a behind-closed-doors exhibition match against the Netherlands on Sept. 25 before taking on Colombia in their first group game.
