Taiwan’s “Mulan” national women’s soccer team lost to Thailand 1-0 on Friday, failing to
advance from Group C qualifiers for the AFC Women’s Asian Cup in Jordan next year.
Thailand secured top spot in Group C with the win after a goal from a free-kick by striker Suchawadee Nildhamrong in the third minute at the Faisal al-Husseini International Stadium in the West Bank, Palestine.
Suchawadee just missed out on another goal when she blazed just over the crossbar.
The Mulan pressed for an equalizer, but Thailand goalkeeper Waraporn Boonsing made saves on shots by midfielders Chen Yen-ping and Yu Hsiu-chin before halftime. [FULL STORY]
