The South Korean women’s team beat Japan, 2-1, on Saturday, foiling the 2011 FIFA World Cup winner’s bid to claim its third straight East Asian Cup title. North Korea won the South Korea-hosted event with seven points, three points ahead of Japan.
The North Koreans, who defeated China, 1-0, earlier Saturday, cheered for South Koreans in the stands during the South Korea-Japan match at Jamsil Olympic Stadium.
After the match, they ran onto the pitch and put their arms around the South Korean players to celebrate the South’s victory, which gave the North its first title in the four-nation tournament. Some players from both teams were seen shedding tears when they embraced each other.
