The KFA has confirmed on Tuesday that the women’s U-20 national team will be coached by Hwang Insun, who is currently the assistant coach of women’s senior national team. This is the first time that a female coach has taken charge of any national team at any level, although there have been a few female coaches in school teams or semi-pro clubs.
Under Hwang’s guidance, the women’s U-20 national team will take part in the 2022 FIFA Women’s U-20 World Cup in Costa Rica next summer.
