Tirapu somehow allowed a looping cross from defender Kim Soo-yun to sail over her head and into the net in the 78th minute, ensuring South Korea qualified in second place with four points.... The win means South Korea have made it out of the group stage at the World Cup for the first time. They were eliminated at the first hurdle in their only other appearance in 2003. The Asian side, who started the day in bottom place, fell behind in the first half but tied the game in the 53rd minute when Cho So-hyun planted a header into the net from close range.

April 5, 2015 - Ji So-yun scores late winner over Russia
"South Korea edged out Russia 1-0 in the two countries' women's football friendly match at home on Sunday. Striker Ji So-yun scored in the dying moments of the match at Incheon Football Stadium, located just west of Seoul, to lift the home side over the visitors in a prep match ahead of this year's FIFA Women's World Cup.... Ji, who plays club football for Chelsea Ladies in England, only arrived in South Korea on Saturday and entered the match as a substitute in the 28th minute. Ji covered a lot of ground on offense, threading passes and launching mid-range shots to breathe life into what had been a lethargic South Korean offense. Her efforts only bore fruit in the 90th minute, when the match seemed destined to end in a scoreless draw. Yeo Min-ji set up Ji inside the box and the 24-year-old forward struck the ball past Margarita Shirokova for the match's only goal. It was Ji's 37th goal in her 73rd appearance." -  Korea Herald
