Jeon Ga-eul is a striker who made her debut as a senior national team member in the 2007 Beijing Olympic qualifier match against Vietnam, and scored 38 goals in 101 international matches, including a friendly match against Iceland in 2019.

Her 38 goals in her A match ranks second on the all-time list of Korean female players, following Ji So-yeon (Seattle, 70 goals).

He contributed to Korea’s first-ever advance to the round of 16 of the Women’s World Cup by scoring against Costa Rica in the group stage of the 2015 Canada Women’s World Cup, and also contributed to winning bronze medals in three consecutive Asian Games (2010, 2014, 2018).

On the adult stage, starting with Suwon Facilities Management Corporation (currently Suwon FC) in 2008, he played for Incheon Hyundai Steel, Hwacheon KSPO, and Sejong Sports Toto in the WK League.

In 2010, he took the lead in the team’s first WK League win at the Suwon Facilities Management Corporation and received the Most Valuable Player Award (MVP) in the championship game, and won the WK League championship trophy three more times (2013, 2014, 2015) at Hyundai Steel.

She was loaned to Western New York Flash in the United States in 2016, becoming the first Korean female player to play in the United States.

She also played for Melbourne Victory in Australia and Bristol City and Reading in England.

On this day, Jeon Ga-eul, who served as a ‘match ball carrier’ carrying the used ball before the start of the match against the Philippines, received a commemorative trophy from Korea Football Association President Chung Mong-gyu at the retirement ceremony held after the first half.

Kim Hye-ri (Hyundai Steel) and Cho So-hyun (Birmingham City), who represented the players, presented uniforms with commemorative photo frames, and the national team supporters, the Red Devils and their families, also came to the ground to congratulate Jeong-eul, who is starting his ‘second life’.

Jeon Ga-eul said, “I have achieved nothing on my own until I am standing in this glorious position.

“I think I was a lucky player because I had my teammates,” he said, shedding tears.

He added, “I received a lot of help, so I will live an exemplary life as a soccer player and a person who can help in the future and give good energy.”

‘European Champions’ England hold off Nigeria on penalties to reach quarterfinals

‘European Champions’ England overcame a numerical disadvantage to defeat Nigeria on penalties to reach the quarterfinals of the FIFA Women’s World Cup Australia-New Zealand 2023.

England beat Nigeria 4-2 on penalties on Sunday at Brisbane Stadium in Brisbane, Australia, in the Round of 16 after 120 minutes of 0-0 stalemate.

England, ranked No. 4 in the FIFA World Rankings, were threatened by a player being sent off in the final minute of regulation time, but held on for 30 minutes of extra time with a stiffer defense than they have shown since the win.

England are the reigning European champions, having won the 2022 Women’s European Football Championship (EURO) on home soil.

With top-four finishes in Canada 2015 and France 2019, the Three Lions will be looking to win their first ever World Cup title at the tournament.

England will face the winner of the Colombia-Jamaica match at 7:30 p.m. on Dec. 12 for a spot in the semifinals.

Nigeria, ranked No. 40, failed to win its first game of the tournament.

Nigeria has made the tournament twice before, in 1999 in the United States and 2019 in France, but both times they were eliminated in the first round.

The turning point in a tight game came in the 42nd minute when England midfielder Loren James was sent off for an unsportsmanlike foul.

After tangling with Nigerian defender Michel Alozie, James stomped on Alozie’s buttocks as he got up.

The referee initially pulled out a yellow card, but after a video assistant referee (VAR) on-field review, he changed it to a red.

Nigeria headed into stoppage time with a numerical advantage, but the pendulum of the game was not tipping easily.

England’s tenacious defense kept the Nigerian attack at bay, and the game went to penalty kicks.

Nigeria were unfortunate not to capitalize on their chances in the 12th minute of extra time, when Asisat Oshoala’s curling shot from the edge of the area went straight at the goalkeeper.

In the penalty shootout, England had shots on target from all players except Georgia Stanway, who took the first kick.

On the other hand, Nigeria’s first kicker, Onome Ebi, and second kicker, Alozie, missed. 토토사이트
