The Thai women’s team entered the quarter-finals of the Asian Women’s Football Cup with the Japanese women’s team when there were only 14 registered players, due to the impact of the Covid epidemic in India.

After the break, the Thai women’s net was shaken five more times. In which Yuika’s hat-trick (65′ pen, 80′, 83′), the other two goals were scored by Rin (48′) and Riko (75′).
