On the day Franzisca Hauke celebrated 100 caps for Germany, she also scored the opening goal in the first match of the second day at the Argentina HWL Final in Rosario.

It turned out to be a vital goal for her team as Korea equalised shortly afterwards and then proceeded to dominate the final 20 minutes of the game.

The match between the world number eight team, Korea, and world number nine, Germany, was always going to be a tough match for both teams. Germany have a wealth of talent when it comes to goalkeepers and the Korea attack was foiled time and again by Yvonne Frank in the goal.

The first half saw the German midfield and forwards working hard, but unable to break through the disciplined Korea defence.

Hauke's goal, when it came after 37 minutes, was the result of patient build-up play from the team, but the shot by the midfielder was pure individual class – taken early from the top of the circle and flying past Jang Soo Ji in the Korea goal.

The German's joy was short-lived as Han Hye Loung (45'), the Korea captain, was able to move freely through the German defence and slip the ball past Frank to even the scoreline.

Cho Hye Jin almost clinched the game when she fizzed a shot over the crossbar. Again, some poor German defending allowing her the freedom to take a shot.

The final 10 minutes of the game was largely dominated by Korea. Their superior fitness meant they could cease space and chances and the German team was working too hard at defending the ball to create any meaningful chances themselves.

Jang Hee Sun thought she had nicked a win for her team when she found the back of the net with just three minutes left on the clock, but the goal was judged dangerous and the game ended with honours even.

Speaking after the game, Kim Ji Eun said: "We played the ball around well and our defence was very good, we really protected our goal. We were disappointed the second goal was disallowed but we know we needed to put more chances away."

Germany's Hauke added: "We played well for patches today but in the end it was a draw. We played to our plan – to use both sides and then cut in, but, well it was not quite enough today to win."

Yvonne Frank, who celebrated 150 caps, said: "Today we did a good job, but on another day, under different conditions we would have won." Speaking about her own outstanding performance, she said: "I always have to be concentrating, and I do study other players."
