AUSTRALIA 0 - 1 JAPAN
Yuka Momiki 17’ (JAPAN)
Japan completed a perfect AFC U-16 Women's Championship 2011 campaign with a 1-0 win over Australia on Sunday as Yuka Momiki's first-half effort ensured the champions made it five wins out of five at the Jiangning Sports Center.
Japan had sealed the title with victory over Korea Republic on Thursday and after shutting out Australia they also ended the tournament without conceding a single goal.
Australia got off the mark with win over Thailand last time out, but was no match for even a much-changed Japan team and, as was the case earlier in the tournament, had Eliza Campbell to thank for a series of fine saves.
Japan's title win has cemented the country's status as the cream of the crop in women's football. This year the senior team won the FIFA Women's World Cup, while they also hold the AFC U-19 Women's Championship 2011 crown.
And victory in the final match here was the icing on the cake for Hiroshi Yoshida's impressive side.

KIM SO HYANG 6’
RI UN SIM 31’ 43’ 45+1’ 46’ 52’ 66’ 74’
Seven goals from striker from Ri Un-sim helped DPR Korea finish their AFC U-16 Women's Championship 2011 campaign in style with a thumping 8-0 win over Thailand at the Olympic Sport Center Stadium.
Hwang Yong-bong's side had nothing to lose after securing second spot behind champions Japan on Thursday and it allowed them to play with freedom against Thailand. In contrast, Neungrutai Srathongvian's team finished bottom of the table in what proved a tough learning experience for her side in Nanjing.
Forward Kim So-Hyang tore through the Thai defense to give DPR Korea the lead after six minutes and Ri Un-sim added three more goals in the first-half before taking her tally to seven in the second period.
