It was a bright start by Brazil and defender Fabiana, who’s thunderous long-ranged drive hit the crossbar in the early moments, proving that she was a constant threat to Korea’s goal in the second game at the Olympic Stadium.

With attack after attack it seemed it would be only a matter of time before Brazil would score but the Korean’s were holding their own. That was until a mistake by defender Kim Doyeon gifted the ball to Brazilian forward Formiga, who then poked home passed Goalkeeper Kim Jungmi and become the oldest ever FIFA Women’s World Cup goalscorer.

It was Player of the Match Formiga again who burst through Korea’s defence in the second half and was fouled in the area. Captain Marta slotted home the penalty and score her 15th World Cup goal.

Yoon Dukyeo’s side did have a decent chance themselves but Jeon Gaeul saw her effort deflected wide after some good play by Ji Soyun.
