Match reviews: May 19th Results:
Korea Republic 0 – 0 China
Korea Republic advanced to the semi-finals of the AFC Women’s Asian Cup as Group B winners after sharing a goalless draw with China at Thong Nhat Stadium, with their fellow East Asians joining them in the final four as group runners-up.
The Korean side simply needed to avoid defeat to Hao Wei’s China team to top the group with the advantage of a superior goal difference over the eight-time champions, and so it proved to be as the two Asian power houses cancelled each other out in the stalemate on Monday evening.
The result means Korea Republic will now face Group A runners-up and defending champions Australia, while China face-off against arch rivals and Group A winners Japan at Thong Nhat Stadium on Thursday 22nd.
Thailand 2 – 1 Myanmar
Kanjana Sung-Ngoen 29′ (Thailand)
Yee Yee OO 45+1′ (Myanmar)
Sritala Duangnapa 58′ (Thailand)
Thailand kept their chances of qualifying for next year’s FIFA World Cup alive after beating Myanmar 2-1 in their final group match of the AFC Women’s Asia Cup on Monday at Binh Duong Stadium.
Thailand opened the scoring in the 27th minute through Kanjana Sung-Ngoen but Myanmar, who had lost to Thailand in the semi-finals of the SEA Games last year on penalties, found themselves back on level terms on the stroke of half-time when Yee Yee Oo fired home.
Thailand were able to restore their lead 12 minutes into the second half when Sritala Duangnapa got the better of a goal-mouth scramble and were able to hold on for the crucial win.
