CEBU CITY, Philippines — The Philippine Women’s National Football Team’s U-19 squad officially bowed out of contention in the ongoing ASEAN Football Federation (AFF) U-19 Women’s Championship 2023 in Palembang, Indonesia.

This after they lost to Myanmar, 1-2, in their last remaining group stage match on Saturday evening, July 8, 2023, at the Jakabaring Athletic Field.

Thailand beating

It can be recalled that the team suffered a crushing defeat in the hands of Thailand, 0-6, last July 7, in their first match under Group C.

This time, they fought with heart before bowing down to the Burmese squad. 

They scored the first goal courtesy of Celina Salazar and managed to retain the lead throughout the first half. However, the Burmese squad came out with guns blazing in the second half, scoring two unanswered goals, that ultimately sealed the fate of the U-19 Filipinas.
