Well, what an opening match, huh?
While most of their Kababayans were deep in slumber, the Philippine Women's National Football Team took to the pitch in Amman, Jordan and pulled off their one of their biggest wins to date, topping host-nation Jordan in a thrilling opening match of the 2018 AFC Women's Asian Cup, 2-1.
Maysa Jbarah of Jordan opened things up for the host nation with an early goal, but an own goal from teammate Yasmeen Khair helped the Malditas pull even in the second half.
Sarina Bolden put the Malditas ahead in the 76th minute with a screamer that ultimately sealed the win for the Philippines.
