WOMEN END WITH THREE AFC CUP DEFEATS
It wasn’t the tournament we hoped for from the host team results-wise, but nevertheless Jordan’s ladies did us proud with their effort and attitude at the AFC Asian Women’s Cup.
After two defeats, Jordan had it all to do in their final group game against heavyweights China, and the difference showed as the hosts crashed 8-1 at the King Abdullah Stadium.
Jordan’s goal was scored by Sara Abu Subah in the 17th minute, but China powered home to win Group A.
Thailand will join them at the World Cup in France next year after beating The Philippines, 3-1, to clinch second in the group.
