Following the match, head coach Yoon Duk-yeo announced his 23-woman roster for the 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup on Friday. Yoon was missing a lot of players due to injuries ahead of the final roster announcement, but he still managed to add two English Women’s Super League players - Ji So-yun of Chelsea FC Women and Cho So-hyun of West Ham United FC Women.

At the 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup, which runs from June 7 to July 7, Korea is assigned in Group A with host France, Nigeria and Norway.
