The New Zealand Football Ferns have two games confirmed for this month’s international window, taking on Korea Republic on November 27 and 30 at Goyang Stadium, Goyang, Korea Republic.

Football Ferns head coach Jitka Klimková said she is looking forward to the opportunity to reassemble the Ferns and continue the work started during last month’s series against Canada.

“It’s a great opportunity to build on the work and progress we made last month. Our time in Canada was important for connecting as a group and setting the direction for the team,” Klimková said.

“I was really proud of the improvements and progress we made over those 10 days. I’m excited to see how this series against Korea Republic will allow us to continue to develop what we have begun and build to 2023.”

Ranked 18 on FIFA’s women’s world rankings, Korea Republic have qualified for the last two FIFA Women’s World Cups.

The Football Ferns have played Korea Republic 11 times since the two sides first met in 1995, with a win-draw-loss record of 1-5-5. The Ferns last played Korea Republic in March 2019 in their final game at the Cup of Nations in Melbourne, Australia, going down 2-0.

Game dates:

Saturday, November 27 at 2pm Korean Standard Time (6pm NZT)

Tuesday, November 30 at 7pm Korean Standard Time (11pm NZT)
