Korea went ahead in the early hours. In the 10th minute of the first half, Lee Geum-min boldly fired a mid-range shot near the arc, and the ball hit the defender’s elbow, deflected and was sucked into the goal. 

Korea overcame a crucial loss crisis. In the 38th minute of the first half, Sarah Binantz, who caught the ball from the right side of the box, fired a sharp shot. Fortunately, the ball hit the crossbar and came out.

Belgium equalized. In the 46th minute of the first half, Tessa Büllart attempted a mid-range shot from the front of the arc. It hit the defense and bounced high, surpassing goalkeeper Kim Jung-mi and shaking the net.

Korea also wrapped its head around the misfortune of the goal post. Shortly before the end of the first half, Jang Chang fired a powerful left-footed shot from just outside the box. However, the ball hit the crossbar hard.

In the second half, as Korea’s forward pressure loosened, the Belgian offense revived even more. In the 18th minute of the second half, when Bulart came out of space, he tried to shoot straight away from a rather long distance. The ball hit the lower part of the crossbar and wanted to go into the goal, but fortunately it was narrowly not recognized as a goal.

In the end, Belgium turned the game around. In the 23rd minute of the second half, goalkeeper Kim Jeong-mi was unable to get away from the opponent’s corner kick, and a confusion situation arose. In the meantime, Tiné de Cainy pushed the ball in with his right foot and scored the reverse goal.

Korea struck back. In the 35th minute of the second half, in a free kick situation, the Belgian defense head kicked the ball and it landed in the box, and Choi Yuri immediately connected it with a left-footed shot. However, the ball went over the goal.

In the 39th minute of the second half, coach Bell took out Son Hwa-yeon and put in tall striker Park Eun-sun to try to tie the game. However, no further goals were scored after that. In the end, Korea ended the match with a regrettable come-from-behind defeat.
