South Korea is out of the Women’s Football Olympic Qualifiers after it drew with China on Wednesday. Thus, it will be the eighth consecutive time the team failed to qualify for the Summer Games. It was a close match from the start of the match. Both teams failed to make an impact as the whistle signaling the end of the first half blew.
After 62 minutes of pressure, South Korea scored on a Shim Seo-yeon assist. However, China responded with a goal of their own by Wang Shanshan, to the dismay of National Football Team betting fans.
If South Korea could hang on for a bit longer, they would have won the game and clinched first place in Group B based on goal differential. Also, they would have qualified for the next round.
South Korea Out of Women’s Football Olympic Qualifiers
According to online sports betting reports, North Korea defeated South Korea 7-5 in the third round. Thus, the Taeguk Ladies failed to earn a single victory. The South Korean team’s poor conclusion comes after posting some of their greatest results in recent memory in the group stage.
Taeguk Women opened the tournament with a 10-1 victory over Thailand, featuring hat tricks from Casey Phair and Chun Ga-ram. Afterward, South Korea played North Korea to a scoreless draw, barely a month after falling to North Korea 4-1 in the quarterfinals of the Hangzhou Asian Games.
Even though the Taeguk Ladies fell to China 3-2 in last year’s AFC Women’s Asian Cup final, a tie with the world’s most populous nation is still an impressive achievement. The Taeguk Ladies have only won five of their 42 matches with China. South Korea is unbeaten throughout the competition, but only one team advances to the next stage of Olympic qualifying.
There will be two seats available for the Olympic Games, and North Korea has advanced to the third and final round of qualifying, where they will meet Japan. A match will decide the other spot between Australia and Uzbekistan.
When betting on football matches, it is vital to manage your betting bankroll. That way, you can ensure long-term success.
