Belgium v Korea - Women's Champions Challenge 1 - Pool A - Highlights

Park Mi Hyun was Korea's hero as she scored twice in her team's win over Belgium. Her first goal, scored in the 27th minute, broke the stalemate between these two closely-matched teams. Captain Kim Jong Eun made a run that split the Belgium defence and created space and her pass found Park free on the edge of the area. The experienced player made no mistake and took her chance with clinical precision.

Both teams had been playing very cagey hockey to that point, with very few chances offered to either team. Jill Boon had created the best opportunity for Belgium but her shot pulled harmlessly wide. The Korean goalkeeper Jang Soo Ji did not touch the ball in the first half, and Red Panther's Aisling D'Hooghe was also untroubled for the majority of the first 35 minutes.

In the second half, Alix Gerniers thought she had scored the equaliser, but her goal was ruled to have struck a foot. However, just minutes later her teammate Stephanie de Groof (49') scored from a penalty corner. Belgium joy was short-lived however, as goal-scorer Park (52') struck again. Forced wide, the Korean star still managed to find a small gap to slot the ball home and restore her team's lead.

The final 20 minutes of the game saw both teams playing structured hockey that tested their opposing defences, but despite some incisive attacking moves, Belgium were unable to break down the Korean defence and the score remained 2-1.
