ASIA Women’s Club Championship 2019: Nippon TV Beleza and Jiangsu Suning shared first ever points, playing out a 1-1 draw in the opening match

Nippon TV Beleza and Jiangsu Suning shared the AFC Women’s Club Championship’s first ever points, playing out a 1-1 draw in the opening match of the FIFA/AFC Pilot Tournament at Yongin Citizens Sports Park on Tuesday

Jiangsu’s impressive Malawian striker Tabitha Chawinga wrote her name into the history books with the tournament’s first goal in the seventh minute, but Beleza were level just three minutes later thanks to Mjna Tanaka before a second half arm-wrestle.

The result keeps both sides in title contention with two further matches to play in the competition.
