Colin Bell, coach of the women’s soccer team, has tested positive for coronavirus… inpatient treatment

British coach Colin Bell, who is in charge of the women’s soccer team, tested positive for COVID-19, and the Asian Football Federation (AFC) Asian Cup preparations have been disrupted.

The Korea Football Association said, “Director Bell was admitted to the Hyundai Hospital in Namyangju on the afternoon of the 11th on the recommendation of a public health center during self-quarantine after being tested positive for the second gene amplification (PCR) test conducted after the American away match.”

According to the Football Association, manager Bell tested positive for COVID-19 on the 6th.

The national team, preparing for the AFC Women’s Asian Cup to be held in India in January next year, played two away matches against the United States during the A match last month, and returned to Korea with 1 draw and 1 loss.

The national team will have a friendly match against New Zealand on the 27th and 30th at the Goyang Sports Complex.

There is still time until the national team convocation, but depending on Bell’s physical condition, the New Zealand match may be played without a manager, so the Football Association is closely monitoring the situation.
