Tuesday’s FIFA Women’s World Cup group stage match in Sydney, Australia saw Korea lose to Colombia.
The 17th-ranked Korea conceded two goals to 25th-ranked Colombia in the first half and was unable to turn the tide of the match.
Australia and New Zealand are co-hosting the ninth championship of this kind, and this time around, there are 32 competing nations, up from 24 last time. Before the month-long competition concludes on August 20, a total of 64 matches will be played.
The amount of prize money available has also greatly increased. Approximately US$152 million in prize money will be awarded by FIFA for the competition, more than quadruple the sum that was given away at the previous event held in France. Players on the winning team will receive $270,000 each, while all other players will receive a minimum of $30,000 depending on what stage of the tournament they advance to.
