South Korean women’s soccer standouts Ji So-yeon (Suwon FC), Cho So-hyun (Tottenham) and Lee Keum-min (Brighton) will start against Colombia.

Head coach Colleen Bell’s South Korea women’s national team (17th in FIFA rankings) will take on Colombia (25th) in Sydney, New South Wales, Australia, on Friday at 11 a.m. ET in their first Group H match of the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup Australia New Zealand.

According to the lineup released ahead of the match, South Korea will feature a number of experienced veterans.

The veteran trio of Lee Kum-min, Ji So-yeon, and Cho So-hyun combined in the midfield, with Choi Yuri and Son Hwa-yeon (Incheon Hyundai Steel) as the front two.

Yoon Young-gl (BK Hecken) wore the goalkeeping gloves.
