China first team to book ticket to 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup in France!

China has joined hosts France in securing a berth at the 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup after booking their place in the semifinals of the 2018 AFC Women’s Asian Cup in Jordan.

Monday’s 3-0 victory over the Philippines, coupled with Thailand’s subsequent 6-1 win over tournament hosts Jordan, assured the Steel Roses of a top-two finish in Group A and their place at next year’s world finals.

France 2019 will be China’s seventh appearance at a FIFA Women’s World Cup, with the East Asian side having reached the knockout stage in each of their past six appearances. This included a runners-up finish at USA 1999.

They will be joined at women’s football’s showpiece event by three more semifinalists from this year’s AFC Women’s Asian Cup, while the two third-place finishers in the group stage at Jordan 2018 will face each other in a play-off to decide the fifth and final qualifier from the Asian zone.
