The qualifying round of the continent’s U-19 women’s football championship has been wrapped up in Dushanbe, Tajikistan.
It was attended by the hostess of the tournament - Tajik football players and teams of Uzbekistan, Hong Kong and Chinese Taipei.
Our compatriots in the first round defeated the hosts of the tournament with a score of 3:0. Then, with the same score they defeated football players from Hong Kong.
By the final match against Chinese Taipei team the Uzbek football players and their opponents showed equal performance - six points and the same difference between goals scored and goals conceded. But the Chinese team scored more goals, so in this match the national team of Uzbekistan should get a victory. And it has been achieved. At 24th minute of the match Maftuna Panjieva with a penalty scored the only goal, which brought the victory to the Uzbek football players.
Thus, our team won a ticket to the AFC U-19 Women’s Championship, which will be held next year in China.
