South Korea at the Women's World Cup 2019: Scores, schedule, roster, history, how to watch

The South Korea national team entered the 2019 World Cup with the highest expectations in the team's history. After a knockout stage showing at the 2015 World Cup, this is a team that has its sights on a deep run in the competition. Coach Yoon Deok-Yeo led this team at the last World Cup and has a trio of gifted players leading the way, including Lee Min-A, a versatile midfielder and forward who was the joint-top scorer at the AFC Women's Asian Cup in 2018. 

South Korea didn't pick up any points in its three group stage games and was one of the first teams officially bounced from the tournament. South Korea lost to France in the tournament opener before falling to Nigeria and Norway.

What to know

This is a team that is surely on the rise. Up to No. 11 in the FIFA rankings, the talent pool is as strong as ever as the game grows in the Asian nation. Star Ji So-Yun, the youngest-ever goal scorer for the country at the age of 15, is now a 28-year-old veteran. She plays for Chelsea's women's team and is a goal-scoring machine from the midfield. With her leading the way, the expectation is getting to at least the quarterfinals.
