Despite lacking enough time to train together, the women’s football team of the Philippines managed to get a spot after the AFC Women’s Asian Cup to be held in Dushanbe, Tajikistan. With the heroic play coming from Sara Castaneda, she was able to complete a strike in the 82nd minute of the game inside the Pamir Stadium, which assured the team a 1-1 draw against their opponent.
With this final result, the Philippine team gets an opportunity to compete for the final tournament on 2018 in Jordan.
Before competing against Bahrain, the team successfully defeat their other opponents like UAE, Tajikistan and Iraq. This somehow gave them enough motivation to fight toe-to-toe against the tough women’s team of Bahrain who also need to win to matchup.
Despite having a short time preparing for the tournament, the team made an effort to achieve their goal and made a lot of sacrifices to compete in Jordan next year. They are expecting to go up against tougher teams like Australia, China, Japan, Thailand and Jordan.
For the entire Philippine women’s football team, the opportunity to reach the final tournament is already a history for the country. They already received a message of congratulatory from Nonong Araneta who is the current President of the Philippine Football Federation.
