« on: September 16, 2007, 10:41:51 AM »
YANGON (AFP) — Tournament hosts Myanmar have clinched the 2007 ASEAN women's football title, overcoming Thailand to take the championship after a penalty shoot-out.

Thailand kept pace with Myanmar throughout the final late Saturday, and the first goals did not come until extra time, when both teams found the back of the net.

Myanmar, which was hosting the tournament for the first time, eventually won 5-2 on penalties in front of a mostly local crowd.

Eight counties from the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) have battled it out over the last 10 days in Yangon.

The Vietnamese women's team came third after drubbing Malaysia 6-0 on Saturday evening. Teams from Indonesia, Laos, the Philippines and Singapore also competed.
