Vietnam will meet Myanmar in the final of the ASEAN Football Federation (AFF) Women's Football Championships on September 22, following a thumping 7-0 semi-final victory over Laos.

"We didn't think we'd be able to record such a big win," said Vietnam head coach Chen Yun Fa. "I think the Lao players lost their physical strength very quickly. Vietnam and Myanmar have an equal chance of winning the title."

Myanmar put their defeat by Vietnam behind them playing a determined game to edge out Thailand 1-0 in the other semi-final match. The only goal of the game came from San San Maw, who headed home from Khin Marlar Tun's cross in the second half.

Vietnam will face Myanmar in the final at Thong Nhat Stadium, HCM City , hoping for a similar result to their group game encounter, where Vietnam won 2-1.

"Vietnam is a nice team and Myanmar is one of the best teams in Asia, so I think the final will be an exhilarating game," said Myanmar head coach Kumada Yoshinori.
