The Black Sticks will meet Korea in tomorrow's Four Nations final after beating the USA 5-0 in Whangarei today.

After a first half dominated by defence on both sides of the ball, New Zealand took total control in the second period, scoring four goals.

Sian Fremaux was the sole scorer in the first half before Anita Punt, Krystal Forgesson, Kayla Sharland and Petrea Webster added score for New Zealand

Black Sticks head coach Mark Hager said he was impressed with his side's cohesiveness in the second half.

"Overall today was a much better team performance. We moved the ball very well in the second half and created the chances we needed to win," Hager said.

"We're now looking forward to a fast-paced rematch against Korea in tomorrow's final."

Earlier in the day Korea booked their place in the final after upsetting Olympic silver medallists Argentina 4-3.

At one point Korea stretched their lead out as far as 4-1 before Argentina struck back in the second half but couldn't muster an equaliser.

Argentina will now play the USA in the 3rd vs 4th placing game tomorrow.
