Nadeshiko Japan clinched the ticket to Paris with their solid play as a team. The venue for the first qualifying round was changed from the originally scheduled North Korean capital Pyongyang, and was finally announced to be held in Saudi Arabia three days before the match.

In the 26th minute of the first half, Hikaru Kitagawa, who was included in the starting lineup, patiently connected with a free kick. Hana Takahashi took the lead when Minami Tanaka's header bounced off the crossbar. The games that decided to participate in the Paris Olympics are now being streamed on NHK Plus.
