Filipinas down Bahrain to
secure spot in AFC Women's Asian Cup

With table-topping Jordan assured of a spot at the continental gathering because of their hosting duties, the Southeast Asians struck at the death to ensure a top two finish in Group A and book a ticket to what will be their ninth Asian Cup.

On a day when only a win was going to be enough for Bahrain to have a chance of qualifying for the finals, the West Asians began brightly at Dushanbe's Republican Central Stadium, with Reem Alhashmi twice denied by Philippines goalkeeper Inna Palacio within the first 35 minutes.

However, the Philippines, who had notched up three successive wins going into the fixture, were always in the game, and went close to breaking the deadlock through Alesa Nazarena Dolino's effort from a corner and decent strikes from both Claire Lim and Eva Madarang ahead of the break.
