The South Korean women’s national team’s first opponent at the FIFA Confederations Cup Australia-New Zealand 2023, Colombia, played so roughly that the opposing team had to call off an exhibition match.
The closed-door exhibition match between Colombia and Ireland at Mickin Park Stadium in Brisbane, Australia, on Friday (local time) was abandoned after just 20 minutes of play. “It became too intense and after discussions with officials, the decision was made to end the game,” the Irish Football Association said in a statement, according to Reuters.
Key Ireland midfielder Deniz O’Sullivan was taken to hospital after complaining of shin pain following a rough tackle during the game. “It’s the first time in my 47 years of football that I’ve seen that as a player and as a manager,” Vera Powe told Sky Sports, “and I felt it could be dangerous for the players if the game continued.”카지노
