Not just well done to the Korean ladies but I do believe that out of the 4 semi-finalists, 3 were from Asia so it's good to see that we are leading the way in women's football.

U-17 World Cup squad returns to hero's welcome

The South Korean squad that won the U-17 Women's World Cup made a glorious return Tuesday with the champion's trophy, according to news reports.

Yonhap News said the young players were crowned the world champion for the first time in South Korean football history by nudging past Japan 5-4 in a penalty shootout in the finals of the football tournament held in Trinidad and Tobago on Sunday (Korean time).

"I've never thought of being defeated during the tournament.

Our players were in a good mood," said coach Choi Duck-joo upon arrival at Incheon International Airport. "Frankly, I was worried a little bit but I trusted them."

At the head of the 21-member squad, captain Kim Areum was lifting the FIFA trophy over her head with a gold medal around her neck and a broad smile on her face.

The victory marks the first South Korean championship at a FIFA-sponsored global competition. The country has only reached the semifinals two times -- at the 2002 World Cup and the 2010 U-20 Women's World Cup.

After winning the Asian championships, the girls stormed through to the final of the World Cup.

Their 6-5 victory against Nigeria in the quarterfinals was the highlight of their unstoppable progress. They lost two goals in the first half but forced the game to extra time to win the 120-minute-long match.

In the final, they were not under pressure in the face of the penalty shootout that even made the viewers' mouthes dry up.

Team named for Japan clash


National football team manager Cho Kwang-rae named Monday his squad to face Japan for a home friendly on Oct.12.

The 24-man squad features 11 foreign-based players, including Manchester United midfielder Park Ji-sung and Lee Chung-yong of Bolton Wanderers along with 13 K-League players. Cho has called up three newcomers, Incheon United forward Yoo Byung-soo, Kim Shin-wook of Ulsan Hyundai and Choi Sung-kuk of Gwangju Sangmu, for the forward line.

The 22-year-old Yoo, the leading scorer in the K-League this season with 17 goals, and the 196cm-tall forward Kim have been summoned for the first time for the national squad. The 27-year-old midfielder Choi will also make a return to the team after spending two years away.

Speaking of the call-ups of the locally based players, the 56-year-old manager said,

Korea-Japan match, game of poor equals


It was a game of poor equals.

South Korea and Japan fought to a scoreless tie in a friendly soccer match in the World Cup Stadium in western Seoul, Tuesday night.

The two archrivals gave a lackluster performance with few close calls for the capacity crowd to cheer about, that was disappointing to the coaches of the two teams.
