South Korea women’s football coach wants to lead the team to its first ever Olympic football tournament. However, they lost the first leg to China, 2-1. Coach Colin Bell needs to go back to the drawing board to qualify for the Olympics.
The South Korea Women’s team needs to play a perfect game away from home. The aggregate score will determine who qualifies for the Summer Olympics. China won the first leg with a goal at the 73rd minute to break the tie. According to sports betting reports, South Korea had two defensive mistakes that led to the goals.
As per sports forum sources, away goals rules are in effect. If there’s a tie in the aggregate score, the team with the most away goals will be the winner. Thus, South Korea needs to win the second leg with a score of 2-0, 3-2, or 3-1. If they win with a score of 2-1, then it will lead to extra time and penalty shootout when needed.
