The Philippines’ victory ended a stretch of 13 straight losses against Thailand in the two sides’ head-to-head matchups.

With its first win in the bag, the Filipinos are now tied with Australia atop Group B at 1-0-0 (win-loss-draw).

Debutant Katrina Guillou could’ve given the Philippines its first goal of the match early in the first half but her attempt was disallowed after it was flagged for offside.
