Korea Republic Women’s National Football Team led by YOON Dukyeo won 3-1 against Russia in the first group stage match of Algarve Cup 2018 held at Albufeira Stadium, Portugal. The national team lost the first goal in the 16th minute but LEE Mina scored the equalizer in the 45th minute. HAN Chaerin and JEONG Seolbin added two more goals, closing the match in 3-1.
The team’s victory is praiseworthy for overcoming numbers of adverse factors including the inferiority in the strength and a damp pitch.
