Apr 06, 2018
The AFC Women’s Asia Cup has been launched in Jordan, but the hosts lost their opening match at the Amman International Stadium.
Following a stunning opening ceremony, Jordan gave their fans a huge opportunity to celebrate by taking the lead against The Phillipines through Maysa Abu Jubarah in the 15th minute.
But the visitors hit back in the second half through an own goal and the winner from Sarina Bolden with 14 minutes to go.
Earlier, China beat Thailand, 4-0, in Group A.
On Saturday, Japan will meet Vietnam at 4:45pm at the King Abdullah Stadium, followed by Australia against South Korea.
