Hanoi (VNA) – Vietnam have secured the only ticket to the final round of the 2018 AFC Women’s Asian Cup after defeating Myanmar 2 – 0 on April 11.

Prior to the game in Hanoi, Vietnam needed only a draw to advance to the finals while it was a must-win match for Myanmar.

Corner-kick export Nguyen Thi Tuyet Dung opened the account for Vietnam 10 minutes after the interval.

Later, the national Golden Ball winner Huynh Nhu made it 2 – 0 from a close-range tap-in at the 82nd minute.

With the latest victory, Vietnam continued to top the Group D standings in the qualification round with four wins, scoring 27 goals and suffered only one goal loss.

The Asian championship will be organised in Jordan in mid-April next year. The top five teams will qualify for the 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup in France.-VNA
