HÀ NỘI — Nguyễn Thị Như Quỳnh scored the only goal to give Việt Nam a 1-0 win over Thailand at the Gelora Jakabaring Stadium in the AFF U18 Women’s Championship 2022.
Many chances were created from the beginning of the match between the two ASEAN arch-rivals but none were converted.
Early in the second half, the tight battle was broken as Quỳnh nabbed the only goal of the game in the 50th minute, delivering victory to Việt Nam who then secured top place of Group A with maximum four wins from four.
Việt Nam will take on Myanmar, Group B's second-place team, in the first semi-final, while Thailand will play Group B winners Australia on August 2 at the Gelora Jakabaring later.
Also on July 30, Singapore and Cambodia played a 1-1 draw to complete their group fixtures at the Jakabaring Athletic Field.
It was Cambodia, who went ahead in the 53rd minute through Von Sreynou before Singapore replied through Nurzaherra Maisarah Rostam in the 79th minute. VNS
