Women's WCQ: Palestine thumps Maldives 4-0

In their opening World Cup Qualifying Match the lady fursan thumped Maldives 4-0. The goals came from Walaa Husayn (2), Hamma Joubran, and Claduia Salameh. Both teams were participating in their first World Cup Qualifying campaign so this is great result for our ladies side. In the other match Jordan destroyed Kyrgyzstan 7-1, the top three teams in this group will qualify for the second stage. Should they top their three team group they will join DPR Korea, Korea Republic, China, Japan, and Australia at the 2010 Asian Cup which will be used as a qualification tournament for the 2011 World Cup Finals in Germany. The withdrawal of Uzbekistan from the competition combined with the win against Maldives means that the team now has one foot in the next round provided they avert heavy losses to Jordan and Kyrgyzstan.
