Women’s soccer’s Korea-Japan match has been delayed.
The Hangzhou 2022 Asian Games Women’s Football Organizing Committee changed the quarterfinal matchups announced on the tournament website on Monday (June 18). However, no other changes were announced.
The women’s soccer team, led by Colleen Bell, was placed in Group E alongside Hong Kong, the Philippines and Myanmar in the women’s soccer competition at the Hangzhou Asian Games.
As the relative underdogs, they’re favored to finish first. Topping Group E meant that the quarterfinals were going to be the focus of attention.
Initially, South Korea’s first-place finish in Group E meant that they would face the winner of Group D. In Group D, which included Japan, Vietnam, Nepal, and Bangladesh, Japan was the favorite to advance.
Naturally, a Korea-Japan matchup was expected in the quarterfinals. As Japan is a powerhouse in women’s soccer, it was an unfavorable matchup, but fortunately, the bracket was changed.
In the women’s soccer quarterfinal bracket posted on the website today, the winner of Group E, which is South Korea, will face either the winner of Group D or the winner of Group C. The other way around.카지노사이트
Conversely, the winner of Group D will face the winner of Group C or Group E for a spot in the quarterfinals.
The potential quarterfinal between South Korea and Japan has been delayed, but if both teams enter the tournament atop their respective groups and win, they will meet in the final.
