Norway makes it through to the Round of 16 with two wins and one loss, while South Korea goes out without a single win. Norway finishes Group A as runner-up, with France winning the group after beating Nigeria 1-0 tonight. Meanwhile South Korea is knocked out, after losing all three matches.
Norway beats South Korea 2-1 in its final Group A game, thanks to two penalties. It led 1-0 at the break, after Hansen slotting the ball home from the spot. It then doubled their lead shortly after the restart as this time Hansen was fouled and Herlovsen stepped up to convert the penalty this time. South Korea continued to press forward and managed to get its reward late on, with Yeo poking the ball home from close range to set up a nervous few minutes for Norway. It almost equalised in stoppage time, but Yeo powered her header wide of the goal.
Caroline Graham Hansen found the bottom corner from the penalty spot early on, after West Ham's Cho So-Hyun had tangled with Chelsea's Maria Thorisdottir in the box at a corner.
New Barcelona signing Graham Hansen was later caught in the area and this time Isabell Herlovsen struck home from the spot, before Yeo Min-ji turned in a late consolation from close range.
South Korea, who had to win on Monday to have any chance of progressing, have endured three losses out of three for the second time in their three World Cup finals appearances, but Yeo's goal gave their fans something to celebrate after nearly 260 minutes without a goal.
The main downside to Norway's relatively solid night was that Graham Hansen had to be withdrawn, hurt after the foul led to their second goal, and they will hope she is fit in time to face the runners-up in Group C in Nice on Saturday.
The 1995 champions, who have featured in all eight editions of this tournament, are through to the knockout stages for a seventh time and look to be among the better-organised sides at the back.
Ranked 12th in the world and two places above South Korea, Martin Sjogren's side were led by Chelsea's defensive duo Maren Mjelde and Thorisdottir.
They did well to resist plenty of pressure from South Korea - for whom Chelsea's Jo So-Yun in midfield was key - before Lee Geum-min's clever flick found Yeo in the area to turn in for 2-1. Lee then almost curled in an equaliser, but her effort from a tight angle was well saved by Ingrid Hjelmseth - who also held Ji's first-half shot from long-range - before Cho headed agonisingly wide in stoppage time.
