NED v KOR Goal 1 for NEDPosted July 4, 2015

The Netherlands and Korea played out an intriguing game that was notable for the unrelenting pressure the Netherlands placed on their rivals and the tactical nous of their Asian opponents.

Only a moment of magical trickery in the dying minutes of the game from Player of the Tournament Lidewij Welten separated the two teams. Her mazy dribble into the circle was finished off with a scorcher of a shot from Ellen Hoog.

The Koreans set out their stall early. While their main concern was defence, when they gained possession they attacked at speed. One of these counter-attacks brought the team their first real goal-scoring opportunity as Kim Darae hit a belter over Joyce Sombroek in the Netherlands goal.

So tight was the Korea defence that the Netherlands penalty corner firepower was also temporarily nullified. Two penalty corners were chased down successfully.

The game of cat and mouse continued, with the Dutch seemingly finding no way through the impenetrable defence. Then a moment of magic from Margot van Geffen created a hole in the wall, but a desperate dive from Carlien van den Heuval saw the Dutch player just failing to connect.

Immediately action swung to the other end and Kim Darae again shot high and just wide. In the second half, the Korea fairytale story looked as if it was getting even better as they scored from a deflected short corner, Park Eunjung (34') proving the hero as she turned Kim Jong's shot into the goal.

Netherlands came straight back at the team in red, Naomi van As and Ellen Hoog combining to great effect to win a penalty corner - but again, the work rate of the Korea team was nothing short of incredible as they got numbers behind the ball.

Caia van Maasakker shot wide from the Netherlands fourth penalty corner and still the Korea team defended their lead. Welten worked her magic round the Korea circle and, with their sixth penalty corner, Maasakker (44') sent her shot flying into the bottom corner of the Korea goal.

And so to the final quarter of this intriguing fixture, with the scores poised at 1-1, the teams took to the field for 15 minutes of no-quarter-given action. First to attack was Netherlands, a powerful run by Welten halted abruptly by Jang Soo Ji. Van As followed up but her shot flew harmlessly over the goal. The game was decided in the 58th minute when Welten ran at the Korea defence, ghosting past the despairing sticks before slipping to Hoog, whose shot was emphatic.
