Sorry, found the answer on the Saipan Tribune: it was a game between Guam and the International All Star team from Guam (not the national team, but players from CNMI with other nationalities against the Guam national team in preparation of the EAFF tournament)...

The CNMI will be getting slots to three international tournaments next year after its application for full membership in the East Asian Football Federation was granted during the EAFF Congress in Tokyo, Japan last September.

“As a full member of the EAFF, we have been invited to compete in three different EAAF-sanctioned competitions in 2009,” said Jerry Tan, president of the Northern Mariana Islands Football Federation.

Tan, along with NMIFA vice president Sue Knecht, attended the EAAF Congress, which was presided by EAFF president Xie Yalong. At the meeting, members of EAFF adopted and unanimously granted a motion to formally include CNMI through NMIFA in the federation.

NMIFA is the 10th member of EAFF joining the Chinese Football Association, Chinese-Taipei Football Association, Guam Football Association, Hong Kong Football Association, Japan Football Association, Korea Football Association, Macao Football Association, and Mongolia Football Federation.

Tan said competing in off-island tournaments are one of the many benefits that NMIFA will be enjoying as a full member of EAFF.

“2009 is going to be a very busy year for NMIFA and will provide great opportunities for our players to compete internationally,” Tan said.

First on the list is the EAFF Men's Preliminary Round to be held in Guam in March. The host and the CNMI will be competing against Mongolia and Macau.

Winner of the qualifier will advance to the semifinals against Hong Kong, South Korea, and Chinese-Taipei in August with the host county to be announced later.

The second competition will be the EAAF Women's Championship in Taiwan in August. The CNMI female strikers will be battling teams from Guam, Hong Kong, Chinese-Taipei, and South Korea.

NMIFA will also be sending a team to a men's futsal competition in November. The host country for the men's futsal event has yet to be determined.

“On top of these three international competitions, sometime in March or April, we will be competing against the Guam National Team for the 3rd Annual Marianas Cup which will be held in Guam. This is for both the men's and women's divisions,” Tan said.

The CNMI hosted the inaugural Marianas Cup, while Guam was the venue of the second edition of the annual event. Guam swept the first two Marianas Cup.

Besides getting tickets to international tournaments, NMIFA is also entitled to coaching clinics, referee development clinics, equipment, and organizational development funding from EAFF.

DPR Korean FA lacks. Otherwise there are only eight present.
To Tanaka: I share your doubt. North Korea was the weakest team from among Great Four in the last tournament, at least men's. Maybe they count so called general table, men and women together, as it's used at EAFF.

SAIPAN: The Northern Mariana Islands are moving forward in their efforts to develop football, making use of assistance provided by AFC’s Vision Asia team.

As part of its Vision Asia commitments, the Northern Mariana Islands Football Association (NMIFA) is set to adopt new statutes during its March Congress.

The statutes have already been reviewed by AFC and comply with FIFA standard statutes.

NMIFA has also appointed a full-time General Secretary to run day-to-day football affairs and is conducting a Class 3 referees course for early this year.

A crucial part of its strategic plan is to establish more clubs to compete in the new Northern Mariana Islands League, which is still in the planning process.

The Islands recently launched a Coed League, which is a recreational tournament designed to introduce people to the sport and provide enthusiasts with an opportunity to play on a regular basis.

The NMIFA is less than three years old and has already made great strides in promoting football on the Islands.

Great to see progress in the CNMI!
They seem very keen to develop football on their islands.
But I don´t think FIFA will accept them. Maybe they are able to join AFC soon.

To get the layout right I assume

1st Stage
Macao, North Mariana, Guam & Mongolia
2nd Stage
Stage 1 winner, Hong Kong, Taiwan & North Korea
Finals
Stage 2 Winner, China, Japan & South Korea

Is this correct?

Yes the layout should be the same except I think North Korea now automatically qualify for finals and China are in Stage 2 as last year China were hosts so automatically qualified for the finals.

But I could be wrong.

Yes could be.
Also if it is ranked by EAFF, North Korea are doing well in the World Cup Qualifiers, so could be ranked higher than China now.

Yeah they are higher in the FIFA rankings than China and have done better in AFC and FIFA World Cup Qualification tournaments of late than China however in the three previous EAFF Cup tournaments China has done better than North Korea including winning the tournament in 2005 which is a lot better than North Korea have ever achieved in an EAFF tournament which was third in 2005, the same year China won the tournament.

If the placings are decided on EAFF rankings then China will have an automatic spot in the finals but if it relies on FIFA rankings then North Korea will have a placing in the finals.

Although they would rather be in the final stage, they will obviously expect to reach the final stage, which ever of them has to Qualify.

True the top four of the EAFF is far and away better than any team who is placed fifth. I would expect the final stage to have both China and North Korea anyway.
