Japan finished the tournament with seven points, two ahead of China, which beat Australia 4-3 earlier in the day.

Kakitani scored the winning goal in the first minute of stoppage time, picking up a loose ball after an impressive save by South Korean goalkeeper Jung Sung-ryong. It was Kakitani's third goal of the tournament.

Kakitani opened the scoring in the 25th minute off a pass from Toshihiro Aoyama. The hosts tied it in the 33rd minute on Yun Il-lok's strike from the top of the penalty area that went past Japanese goalie Shusaku Nishikawa.
