Vietnamese under-19 woman football team looks set to advance on the final round of the AFC U19 Woman’s Football Championship 2008 in China next year after hammering under-19 Philippines 11-0 yesterday in Malaysia.
In group A, Viet Nam and Myanmar scored nine points after three wins and one loss. Vietnamese team ranks second due to its five-goal loss to Myanmar. Korea, meanwhile, took the top thanks to its four consecutive victories. Followed are Jordan, the Philippines and Singapore.
