North Korea, Colombia finish World Cup play with scoreless draw

BOCHUM, Germany (AP) -- North Korea and Colombia drew 0-0 on Wednesday at the Women's World Cup, ensuring neither team scored a goal at the tournament.

Both teams were already eliminated after having lost their opening games to the United States and Sweden.

Colombia made the better start in an entertaining game, but North Korea came closest to scoring when Jo Yun Mi's shot flew narrowly wide of the corner of the net in the 6th minute.

Yulieht Dominguez tried her luck from distance for Colombia minutes later, requiring goalkeeper Hong Myong Hui to make a save.

Inaccurate passing meant both teams resorted to long-range efforts in a bid to break the deadlock. A shot from North Korea's Jon Myong Hwa landed atop the net in the 29th.

Orianica Velasquez's free kick was easily gathered by Hong in the 66th before Katerin Castro had another shot blocked.

Both sides went all out to score toward the end, when North Korea captain Jo was close again by heading narrowly wide in the 86th minute.

Also Wednesday, Sweden beat the U.S. team 2-1 to top Group C.
