Adelaide = Yonhap Lee “I want to show Korea’s strength so my children can see itOh Eun-hyang, who has lived in Adelaide, South Australia, for 10 years, visited Hindmarsh Stadium with her husband and two sons on Tuesday afternoon. The stadium was hosting the South Korea-Morocco match in Group H of the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup .Oh said she especially wanted to show her youngest son, who is five years old, how the women’s national soccer team played. “I felt so bad about the Colombia game. I wanted my son to see our Korean players play fiercely,” Oh said. With a 0-2 loss to Colombia in the first leg, the team’s prospects for the Round of 16 have dimmed .A loss would make them the first team in Group H to lose two games, effectively ending their chances of reaching the round of 16 for the first time in eight years .I t’s a ‘cliffhanger’ game, but after conceding a header to Ibtisam Zaidi in the sixth minute of the first half, they’re desperate to turn things around .Hindmarsh 토토 Stadium is the home of Adelaide United in the Australian Football League A-League .Unlike the first leg venue, Sydney Football Stadium, where most seats were blue, this stadium is covered in the club’s signature red colo r.As such, the fans wearing the red jerseys of the Korean national team didn’t look out of place at all. The 20 or so members of the Red Devils, the Korean national soccer team’s cheerleading squad, created a “one hundred percent” effect .They sang “Oh Pilseung Korea” nonstop to encourage the players .Kim Mo, 47, from Icheon, Gyeonggi-do, tapped the drum around his neck and said, “We can do better. I hope we can do well in this match and the third match to fulfill our dream of reaching the round of 16.”Halfway through the first half, fans in every corner of the stadium joined in with the Red Devils, creating an atmosphere that felt like home for Korea. The Moroccan fans’ cheers were drowned out as the team’s official anthem, “To Victory,” echoed through the stadium.”It’s not every day that the players come all the way to Adelaide to play,” said Lee Mo, a local resident who was waving a giant flag tied to a flagpole. In Sydney or Melbourne, I’ve heard of the national team visiting from time to time, but Adelaide is different,” he said.” Women’s soccer is very popular in Australia. It’s nice to see the girls here,” she said, adding, “It hurts right now that we’re losing, but I’m sure we’ll turn it around.” Shin Boram, 27, also crossed the Pacific Ocean from Daegu to support the national team’s “Akbari defender” Chu Hyo-joo (Suwon FC).”I usually get a lot of strength from watching women’s soccer,” said Shin, who wore Chu’s jersey when she played for Suwon City Corporation (now Suwon FC) in the WK League. I’m glad to be able to cheer them on in Australia, even if it’s just a little bit,” he said. “It’s not an easy schedule with Colombia and then Morocco, but the players are showing everything without giving up,” he encouraged.
