AFC hails Hai Yen’s performance in Asian Cup qualifiers

VOV.VN - Vietnamese footballer Pham Hai Yen has been named among the top six players who lit up the qualifiers for the 2022 AFC Women’s Asian Cup in India, according to an article published on the official website of the Asian Football Confederation (AFC).

The AFC singled out Hai Yen for her spetecular performance in Dushanbe, Tajikistan, scoring eight goals for Vietnam in two games, helping her team to progress to Asian Cup finals.

 “A half-time substitute in Vietnam’s record 16-0 win over the Maldives, she helped herself to a remarkable six goals in 33 minutes before adding two more against Tajikistan as Mai Duc Chung’s side sealed their qualification,” says the website.

It adds that whilst she has long been considered a lethal finisher at both domestic and regional level, the Vietnamese player will be looking to make her mark on the stage of all in the continental tournament. This could potentially go further, perhaps she could even lead an ever-improving Vietnam to their first ever FIFA Women’s World Cup.

Rounding off the list of the AFC’s top six are Moon Mi-ra of the Republic of Korea, Janista Jinantuya of Thailand, Zahra Muzdalifah of Indonesia, Behnaz Taherkhani of IR Iran, and Chandler McDaniel of the Philippines.
