According to the Asian Games women’s soccer quarterfinal bracket announced on the competition website on the 18th, the first place in Group E, which Korea belongs to, will face the second place in Group D or the first place in Group C. The first place in Group D will compete with the first place in Group C or second place in Group E to advance to the semifinals.
The Hangzhou Asian Games women’s soccer group stage was divided into five groups, with groups A to C assigned three teams each, and groups D and E assigned four teams each. The five countries ranked first in each group and the three best-performing second-place countries in each group will face each other in the quarterfinals.
Originally, the schedule was for the first place in Group D and the first place in Group E to meet in the quarterfinals. Accordingly, the Korean national team was expected to play the Korea-Japan match in the quarterfinals against Japan, a powerhouse in women’s soccer, who is expected to rise to first place in Group D.
However, with the change in matchmaking, the possibility of facing Japan from the quarterfinals has decreased significantly. If Korea and Japan each advance to the tournament by finishing first in their group, a match between Korea and Japan will take place in the finals.
The Korea Football Association stated that it had not received any notification from the Asian Games organizing committee about the change in the match-up. On the 8th, the Association received a file summarizing the changed schedule for all Asian Games events from the Games Organizing Committee, but it is said that the document did not mention any changes to the soccer schedule. Instead, it is said that the guidelines received on the same day printed a revised bracket without any information about the schedule change. In a situation where there was no notice of a change in the soccer schedule, they did not expect that the bracket would have changed, and they did not check the new bracket separately.
