Saturday, April 21, 2018

Amman: After 17 matches over 14 days, the AFC Women’s Asian Cup has come to an end for another four years. Join as we take a look some of the key numbers from Jordan 2018.

364 – Australia’s Alanna Kennedy attempted 364 passes in five matches, the most of any player, while also contributing two goals and two assists despite playing as a defender.

16 – Wang Shuang led the tournament in chance creation. The China PR playmaker showed her quality, creating 16 chances for her teammates while still finding time to find the back of the net four times herself. 

0 -  Despite being eliminated in the group stage, Korea Republic were the only side not to concede a single goal in the tournament. Such was their defensive strength that goalkeeper Yoon Young-guel was only required to make seven saves in their four matches.

2 – China PR and host nation Jordan were the only two sides to score in every match they played in the tournament. China PR finished a creditable third, while Jordan unfortunately lost all three of their Group A matches.

1,958 – Australia can claim the mantle of Asia’s pass masters, completing 1,958 passes in their five matches – the most of any team in the tournament.

44% -  Kanjana Sung-Ngoen further cemented herself as a legend of the Thai women’s national team with four goals in Jordan. Added to her three goals in Vietnam 2014, the veteran striker has now scored 44% of her country’s goals in the past two AFC Women’s Asian Cups.

7 – With several teams boasting world class attacking talent, the highly competitive race for the Golden Boot was won by China PR’s Li Ying, who found the back of the net seven times, scoring at least once in all five of her appearances.

80% – Japan forward Kumi Yokoyama was surely the most efficient striker in the tournament. The 24-year-old scored four goals, including the winner in the final, from just five shots, giving her an 80% conversion rate. The 24-year-old forward only spent 101 minutes on the pitch in the entire competition.
