Spurs Women will be represented on both sides of the AFC Women's Asian Cup Final in India on Sunday.
So-hyun Cho was on target and named Player of the Match as South Korea beat Philippines in Thursday's semi-final. Later, Jiali Tang's China came from behind twice against Japan, the second equaliser in the last minute of extra time, before winning a penalty shoot-out to reach the final.
Cho impressed again for South Korea and gave her team the perfect start by powering home a header from a corner in the fourth minute at the Shree Shiv Chhatrapati Sports Complex in Pune. Hwa-yeon Son doubled their lead 30 minutes later and that was enough against a Philippines' side that didn't manage a shot on target.
Cho will now do battle against Jiali, who played 110 of the 120 minutes against Japan, in the final at D Y Patil Sports Stadium in Mumbai.
