AIFF Match Report
Indian women went down 0-10 to a superior Korea Republic in their second Group A match of the Women’s Football Competition in the Incheon Asian Games. Korea Republic led five-nil at the interval.
Four goals from Yoo Younga, hattrick from Jeon Gaeul, a brace from Jung Seoblin and one from Park Heeyoung saw the Asian heavyweights brush aside their Indian counterparts.
The match was a totally one-sided affair as Korea Republic dominated proceedings right from the kick-off. So much so, that they surged into a 2-0 lead by the 9th minute itself.
Thereafter, there was a barrage of attacks at the India citadel as the Indian Women stayed busy defending all throughout.
To make matters worse, Captain Bembem Devi was given marching orders for her second yellow card of the match in the 53rd minute.
India next play Thailand in the last Group League match on September 21 (Sunday).
