Saudi Arabia bow out of 2024 WAFF Women’s Championship with Guam defeat

RIYADH: The Saudi Arabia women’s national team ended its 2024 West Asian Football Federation (WAFF) Women’s Championship campaign with a 2-0 defeat against Guam on Friday night.

With qualification out of reach for both teams following previous results against Jordan and Lebanon, Saudi Arabia and Guam went head-to-head with a third-place finish in Group A up for grabs.

While Saudi Arabia played well and went close on numerous occasions, Guam took all three points.

Despite being unable to register a victory in its first-ever appearance in the competition, progression has been clear for all to see under new head coach Lluís Cortés as the team gave a solid account of themselves against strong opposition.
