Korea claimed its third consecutive E-1 Football Championship title on Wednesday after defeating Japan 1-0 in the final in Busan.
It was Korea's fifth title overall in the biennial tournament organized by the East Asian Football Federation.
Korea beat all three of its opponents -- Hong Kong (2-0), China (1-0) and Japan -- without conceding a single shot on goal.
Midfielder Hwang In-beom of Vancouver Whitecaps, who also scored against Hong Kong, converted a pass from Kim Jin-su into the winning goal in the 27th minute.
