CAMPBELLTOWN Australia By Lee Byung-jin = Coach Colleen Bell, who will lead the South Korean women’s soccer team to the 2023 FIFA World Cup in Australia and New Zealand, said the team’s first match against Morocco is “practically a tournament. “We know what’s at stake against Morocco,” Bell told reporters after training at Campbelltown Sports Stadium outside Sydney, New South Wales, Australia, on Monday, “and in a way it’s like we’re starting the tournament (after the round of 16) right away.” “We want to stay in this tournament for a long time and we’ll do everything we can to make that happen,” casinositeking he said, adding, “If we can win against Morocco, that’s great and we need to at least get a point.” A 0-2 loss to Colombia in their Group H opener at the Sydney Football Stadium on Aug. 25 put the Azzurri at a disadvantage as they look to reach the round of 16 for the first time in eight years. With Germany (No. 2), the highest-ranked team in Group H, boosting its chances of topping the group with a 6-0 thrashing of Morocco, the Socceroos are desperate to pick up as many points as possible in their remaining games. Bell’s team is working hard to correct the problems that were exposed against Colombia.
