With this result, Vietnam topped Group E and secured a place in the second qualifier round.

Earlier, Vietnam defeated Singapore 11-0 and Malaysia 2-1. Following the two consecutive wins, the hosts Vietnam played very confidently from the opening whistle.

Captain Tuyet Ngan had the opener for the hosts at the fourth minute after overcoming an interception by a Jordanian defender.

Three minutes later, Ngan once again added to the scoresheet with a devilish shot to beat Jordan’s goalie.

After that, coach Mai Duc Chung asked his players to slow down. However, at the 25th minute, Ngan once again raised the score to 3-0 for Vietnam. Receiving a pass from Thu Xuan, Ngan coolly headed the ball to make Vietnamese fans jump for joy.

After the break, the Vietnamese side still dominated the game with their flexible style. Meanwhile, Jordan’s defence had lost their focus.

At the 81st minute, Van Su fixed the match’s score at 4-0 for the hosts.

The 2019 AFC U19 Women’s Championship qualifiers brought together 30 teams that played in a round robin tournament in three groups of five and three groups of four. The six group winners and the two best runners-up will advance to the second qualifier round.

The eight qualifiers for the second round will compete in a round robin format in two groups to decide the top two teams from each group that will make it through to the finals in Thailand, which will also feature the three wild card winners (Japan, the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea and China) and hosts Thailand.
