West Bank: Thailand qualified for their 17th AFC Women's Asian Cup Finals with an emphatic 7-0 win over Palestine on Saturday.

Victory meant the Southeast Asian side finished top of Group H, having defeated Malaysia in their opening match with qualification meaning Thailand are very much in the race to qualify for the 2023 FIFA Women's World Cup to be co-hosted by Australia and New Zealand.

Thailand dominated proceedings in the opening minutes and had their first sight on goal in the eighth minute through Ploychompoo Somnonks corner kick but Phonphirun Philawan was unable to connect, with the Palestine defence quickly dealing with the threat.

Despite only needing a draw to confirm their place in the AFC Womens Asian Cup India 2022, Thailand kept pressing and should have taken the lead in the 20th minute.

The action began with Chatchawan Rodthong beating the offside trap to collect Silawan Intamees through pass but Palestine goalkeeper Leen Qaraqra pulled off a fine save, before Warunee Phetwiset collected the rebound only to see her strike deflect off the crossbar.

The Chaba Kaews persistence was finally rewarded in the second minute of added time when Phetwiset curled in a sublime cross which Janista Jinantuya finished by backheeling the ball into the net, before Intamee struck three minutes later to double their lead just before the break.

Thailand turned on the power in the second half with Irravadee Makris scoring back-to-back goals in the 47th and 52nd minutes, before Intamee made it 5-0 with her effort in the 76th.

There was no stopping the Southeast Asians march as Makris completed her hat-trick in the 82nd minute, with Jinantuya slotting home the final goal of the evening six minutes into second half added time to seal the emphatic win.
