The Philippine Women’s National Football Team has secured a spot in the AFC Women’s Asian Cup to be held in Jordan next year.

This happened after the team managed a 1-1 draw against Bahrain courtesy of an 82nd-minute goal from Sara Castaneda, a newspaper reported.

Patrice Impelido, the team captain, described the game as a “rollercoaster ride of emotions.”

“Even though Bahrain was able to score first we never gave up. There was still plenty of time in the 2nd half. We kept fighting. We kept our composure and worked as a team. And that’s how Sara was about to score that equalizer,” Patrice was quoted in a Facebook post of the team.
