Bangkok: Vietnam will meet holders Islamic Republic of Iran in the AFC Women’s Futsal Championship 2018 semi-finals after they eliminated Indonesia with a 2-1 quarter-final win on Wednesday.
Nguyen Thi Hue scored the precious late goal which decided the contest and gave Vietnam their fourth consecutive win in a tournament where they failed to win a match three years ago.
It was a heartbreaking end for Indonesia, who trailed at half-time before equalising early in the second half through Febriana, as their maiden continental campaign finished with a narrow defeat.
In a battle of two undefeated sides, Indonesia looked to continue their dream AFC Women’s Futsal Championship debut by reaching the semi-finals at their first attempt, while Vietnam were hopeful of repeating last year’s 2-1 SEA Games win against their regional rivals.
