Colin Bell: ‘In 34 years of coaching, I never thought I’d lose a game’…as he prepares for clash with Germany

A day ahead of their final group game against Germany at the 2023 Women’s World Cup Australia-New Zealand, South Korea women’s soccer team head coach Colleen Bell has called for “no quits” in their quest to advance to the round of 16, despite the mathematical odds.

“We’re going to show what we’re capable of tomorrow,” 카지노사이트 Bell said at a press conference at Brisbane Stadium in Queensland, Australia, on Sunday.

South Korea, who have lost two straight group games, will play Germany in their final Group H match at 7 p.m. on Wednesday at the same stadium. Anything less than a five-goal win against Germany will result in immediate elimination.

Germany, ranked No. 2 by the Federation Internationale de Football Association (FIFA), cruised to a 6-0 victory over Morocco in its first group game against South Korea. However, a 1-2 loss to Colombia later prevented them from qualifying for the round of 16 and they are expected to go all out against South Korea.

“Even if we had won the first two games, it would have been a tough game (against Germany),” Bell said, “and we’re going to bring the best we’ve played in four years tomorrow.” “We need five goals,” he said, curling his thumb and forefinger to show local reporters. We need a 5-0 win, and that’s the only chance we have,” he said, adding, “We never give up. We will fight until the end tomorrow.”

“My opponent will come to the game thinking that they will win. But so do I,” he said, emphasizing that in 34 years of coaching, and before that as a player, “I’ve never gone into a game thinking I’m going to lose.”

Bell praised the quality of his players, saying, “Our players have so much potential. They are all very proud to play for the Korean national team,” he said.

“But we have to deal with the nerves and pressure that comes with being on the international stage. In the last two games, we didn’t do a good job of that.”
