On Wednesday (27 Sep), Singapore had their rematch against the North Koreans at the Hangzhou 2023 Asian Games.

At the Wenzhou Sports Center Stadium, Singapore started with these eleven players:

- Khairunnisa Anwar

By half-time, North Korea had already scored seven goals, equalling the full-time score of the previous match.
Four North Korean footballers had gotten on the scoresheet:
- Kim Kyongyong (4 goals)

- Myong Yujong (1 goal)
Again, the Lionesses found no success in front of goal.
DPRK scored three more goals in 2nd half, won by 0-10
When full-time came around, the Lionesses remained goalless while North Korea scored three more goals.
This pushed the final score to 0-10, in favour of the DPRK.
Pong Songae also joined the ranks of their team’s scorers, while Kim Kyongyong added a fifth goal. An Myongson chipped in with a goal of her own too.
According to The Straits Times (ST), this left Singapore at the bottom of Women’s Group C, while North Korea qualified for the quarter-finals.
