BANGKOK (1 May 2019) – Four teams from ASEAN have made the cut for the AFC Under-19 Championship which will be held at the end of the year.
Other than hosts Thailand, the other teams which will do the ASEAN region proud are Australia, Myanmar and Vietnam.
What made the achievement more outstanding is the fact that only eight teams have sealed their place in the continental Finals – to be held in October and November 2019
Final day wins for Australia and Myanmar ensured t he duo qualified as winners and runners-up from the Mandalay-based Group A, while Vietnam joined already-qualified Korea Republic in a memorable Matchday Three in Hanoi.
Tuesday’s matches brought to an end a qualifying process which began with a field of 24 teams last October, with four successful teams emerging following two highly competitive stages.
All eyes now turn to the competition’s official draw on 23 May 2019.
