An own goal from Korea’s Doyeon Kim in the 29th minute and a fine finish from Asisat Oshoala in the 75th minute gave the reigning African champions maximum points at the Stade des Alpes.
The victory boosted their chances of qualifying for the knockout round after a 3-0 defeat to Norway in their Group A opening game last Saturday.
In relishing this crucial result, the Super Falcons danced and sang in the dressing room after the game.
Celebrations continue in the dressing room of @NGSuper_Falcons after our 2-0 victory against South Korea today. #SoarSuperFalcons #Team9jaStrong #FIFAWWC #DareToShine @FIFAWWC #NGAKOR @thenff @AdeRockets @aysugaofficial @ayomidiran pic.twitter.com/tX8lKfMhEm— NGSuper_Falcons (@NGSuper_Falcons) June 12, 2019
