AFC – DPR Korea

DPR Korea clinched the AFC U-19 Women’s Championship title after defeating arch-rivals Japan 1-0 in the final. Ra Un-sim’s goal in the 22nd minute was all that separated the two sides in a keenly contested match in front of more than 5,000 fans at the Chongqing Olympic Sports Centre, China PR. Having previously fallen twice at the semi-final stage (2002 and 2004) before losing the 2006 final to China by a solitary goal, Choe Kwang-sok’s girls started the match against the 2002 champions in determined fashion as they sought to add the Asian title to the world title they had won in 2006.
