Game Friday
(Amman, Jordan)
1 a.m. – Thailand vs Philippines

The Philippine Malditas absorbed a humbling 3-0 loss to China late Tuesday in the AFC Women’s Asian Cup in Amman, Jordan, putting in jeopardy their bid to earn a World Cup berth for the first time ever.

Li Ying scored twice while Ma Jun converted the other goal for the Chinese booters, who gave the Malditas a reality check after opening their campaign with a shock 2-1 victory over host China over the weekend.

With the loss, the Malditas now face a must-win against Thailand tomorrow (early Friday Manila time) for a spot in the 2019 World Cup in France.

Thailand kept its World Cup quest alive by thrashing Jordan, 6-1, after opening the tournament with a 4-0 loss to China.

China is already assured of making the World Cup with its second straight win to remain on top of Group A.
