MANILA, Philippines — Host Philippines aims for payback, a record-extending fifth straight win and No. 1 spot in the semifinals as it duels with rival Thailand in the last group match of the AFF Women’s Championship tonight at the Rizal Memorial Stadium.

The Filipinas hit the pitch at 7 p.m. teeming with motivation to go for maximum points versus the Thais in the marquee Group A matchup.

First, Thailand denied the Philippines a place in the last Southeast Asian Games gold medal match with a 3-0 win in the semis in Hanoi, and payback at home is a really tantalizing proposition.

Then there’s this chance to further improve on the team’s best start in the tournament, which currently stands at 4-0-0 (win-draw-loss for 12 points) after that 4-1 come-from-behind verdict over Indonesia Sunday night.

A winning result against the second-running Thais (10 points on 3-1-0) will land the Filipinas top of the table in Group A for a Final Four duel with the No. 2 team from Group B.
