MEET THE TAEGEUK NANGJA
SOUTH KOREA WOMEN'S NATIONAL TEAM
A team on the rise, South Korea is ready to build on its round-of-16 finish in 2015.
Keep an eye out for these players as they try to lead South Korea to victory in France.
Ji So-yun has unmatched technique and movements, having scored the most all-time international goals for the team.
Cho So-hyun is captain for South Korea, and for good reason—the experienced midfielder has played over 100 matches for the team and has been a key component of their recent success.
Jang Sel-gi is a gifted defender, winning Player of the Year honours for her club in 2018, due to her poise and focus as a playmaker.
The home shirt is inspired by the South Korean national flag. It features a simplified black-and-white crest designed for a sharp, contemporary feel. A bright red shirt is paired with black shorts to follow the trigrams of the national flag—heaven, earth, water and fire.
The all-white away shirt also symbolises the South Korean national flag, with its unique pattern and red and blue colours featured prominently. The flag's representation is complete with names and numbers of players in black.
