Afterwards Korean goalkeeper Moon Young saved brilliantly against Noel Barrionuevo and Kim Da Rae was denied by Argentine goalie Belen Succi.

Korea created more chances in the second half and gained success by when Cho Eun made it 3-0 before  Mi Park added a fourth. Two minutes later Barrionuevo got Argentina on the scoreboard, but Korea immediately struck back when Seon Lee scored to complete a 5-1 score-line.
