The Philippine Women’s National Team ended their AFF Women’s Championship campaign on a positive note after a late 3-3 draw against Indonesia at the Gelora Sriwijaya Stadium in Palembang, Indonesia.
The Philippines were already two goals up thanks to Kyla Inquig (9’) and Joyce Semacio (14’). However Indonesia fought back in the second half to lead the match, 3-2.
In the dying minutes, Quinley Quezada netted the equalizer in the 5th minute of stoppage time to give the Philippines the draw.
The Philippines, managed by Jefferson Cheng and coached by Buda Bautista, finished the group stage in 3rd place with 1 win, 1 draw, and 2 losses.
“The Philippine Women’s Team put up a good fight in their AFF Women’s Championship run,” said PFF general secretary Atty. Edwin Gastanes. “Their performance in this tournament bodes well for the team in preparation for the upcoming Olympic Qualifiers later this year and the 30th South East Asian Games next year.”
