Crying over another goal. Byun Sung-hwan’s South Korea U17 soccer team has suffered back-to-back defeats at the FIFA U17 World Cup 2023 as its lack of offense has been exposed. The team hit the ground running against the United States on Sept. 12 (ET) and again against France on Sept. 15.

We started with the same 4-3-3 formation as against the USA. Once again, we scored the first goal of the game, but we didn’t attack as much as we did against the United States.

In the 12th minute of the second half, Jin Tae-ho’s shot hit the post. Yoon Do-young and Yang Min-hyuk hit the post in the first half of the match. They were unable to penetrate the French goal in the third.
South Korea had six shots on the day. They had three shots on goal.
