HÀ NỘI — Việt Nam suffered their second loss at the AFC U19 Women’s Football Championship yesterday in Nanjing, China.
The team lost 0-5 to South Korean rivals in a match at Jiangsu Training Base Stadium.
Kim Soeun scored a hattrick while Mun Eun-ju and Kim Eun-soul netted one goal each for the Korean side to maintain their ability to compete in the sem-finals. A final Group B match against Japan on Sunday will decide the Koreans’ ultimate fate. This means they can also keep alive their hopes for a fifth successive FIFA U20 Women’s World Cup appearance.
Việt Nam, on the other hand, remains at the bottom of the rankings. They will next face Australia who played Japan yesterday. — VNS
