Thailand 2 – 1 Myanmar
Thailand powered their way to the AFF Women’s Championship title for the first time when they edged a defiant Myanmar 2-1 in the final at the National Stadium here tonight.
Despite the tight Myanmar defence throughout the final, the speedy Thai strikers managed to slip through the cracks twice but it proved enough to help them secure the crown.
It was sweet success for the Thais who failed in two previous final appearances, in 2007 and again in 2009 when they lost out to Myanmar and Australia respectively.
