August 8, 2015 - Yun Song-Mi & Ra Un-Sim score in win over South Korea
"Korea DPR won the 2015 EAFF Women's East Asian Cup with a hard-fought 2-0 victory over rivals Korea Republic in Wuhan, China on Saturday. A draw was all that was required by Korea DPR to win the four-team, round robin tournament, but a deflected Yun Song-Mi free-kick and a Ra Un-Sim goal in the second half sealed the tournament with a victory." - FIFA

August 4, 2015 - Wi Jong-sim scores brace in 3-2 win over China
"The Chinese went into Tuesday’s later fixture looking to bounce back from their 1-0 loss to Korea Republic on the opening day but the tournament hosts found themselves on the back foot with just five minutes played, when Kim Yun-mi put the North Koreans 1-0 before Wi Jong-sim doubled the advantage in the 24th minute with the first of her brace. Li Dongna reduced the deficit from the penalty spot in the 32nd minute and just seven minutes after the interval China completed the comeback courtesy of Wang Shanshan, who highlighted her eye for goal at the 2015 FIFA Women’s World Cup where she found the target against New Zealand and Cameroon. But China were left playing catch up once again when Wi struck her second in the 69th minute with what transpired to be the winning goal, as DPR Korea joined their southern neighbours at the top-of-the-table ahead of the decisive Korea-derby on Saturday, which will determine the 2015 EAFF champions." - AFC

August 2, 2015 - Ri Ye-gong & Ra Un-sim each score braces in win over Japan
"opening day of EAFF (East Asian Football Federation) Women’s East Asian Cup 2015 on Saturday as the North Koreans defeated Japan 4-2.... The opening match of the four-team round robin tournament brought together DPR Korea, the defending champions, and 2013 runners-up Japan, who retained just six players from the squad that reached the final of the 2015 FIFA Women’s World Cup as head coach Norio Sasaki cast his eye over the next generation of Nadeshiko players. DPR Korea twice took the lead through Ri Ye-gong only for Rika Masuya and Ami Sugita to level for Japan before a late Ra Un-sim doubled sealed victory for the reigning champions." - AFC

February 8, 2015 - Jong Sim Wi scores equalizer in draw with New Zealand
"The Football Ferns have drawn the opening game of their Auckland tri-series tonight after a 1-1 stalemate with world top-10 outfit North Korea. Hannah Wilkinson put New Zealand ahead in the 11th minute before the visitors cancelled it out 11 minutes later to deny the Ferns a win against the seventh-best side in the world.... The equaliser, though, was superbly taken in the 22nd minute when Jong Sim Wi dived bravely at Erin Naylor's front post to head home a low cross." - Stuff
