Ho Chi Minh City: The Philippines advanced to the final of the AFC U-14 Girls Regional Championship (ASEAN) after downing Myanmar 2-1 in their semi-final match at Thong Nhat Stadium in Vietnam on Saturday.
It was Myanmar who scored first through Hnin Mya Thazin on nine minutes but Itsuko Maree Bacatan equalised on 14 minutes before the match went into the break.
The Filipinas took over the lead as Joyce Omboy Semacio scored on 66 minutes to clinch the 70+6-minute game.
The Philippines were vastly improved in this edition as they had finished in fourth position in last year’s inaugural edition also hosted by Vietnam.
