AFC website match summary

MANILA, Philippines — The Philippine team suffered its second straight defeat, bowing to the taller and heftier Uzbekistan squad, 4-0, in the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Under-19 Women’s Championship Group A Qualifiers (Round 1) held recently at the University of Makati football field.

Though dwarfed in size, the RP squad gamely battled the Uzbekistan squad in the first half as the Uzbeks took only a 1-0 halftime despite dominating the game with their precise passing.

But lack of international exposure told heavily on the Nationals as they yielded three more goals in the second half to finish the qualifying tournament organized by the Philippine Football Federation (PFF) and backed by Philippine Sports Commission (PSC) without scoring a goal.

Still, the Nationals can take pride for their gutsy performance, especially from goal keeper Inna Kristianne Palacios who made several great saves that prevented their rivals from scoring more goals.

The Nationals also lost to Myanmar, 5-0.

Meanwhile, the PFF family mourned the death of many-time national team member Danny Wieneke.. He was 72.
