The 2014 AFC Women's Asian Cup, the 18th edition of the competition, was a women's association football tournament competed by national teams in Asian Football Confederation (AFC). It served as the qualification for the 2015 FIFA Women's World Cup.[2] It was played from 14 to 25 May 2014 in Vietnam.[3]

Japan defeated Australia 1–0 in the final to capture their first title.[4]

Qualification[edit]

The final tournament was competed by eight teams, four of which were automatically qualified though their 2010 placement, while the others were determined via a qualification tournament.[5]

North Korea was banned from the tournament due to the sanction on their doping cases in 2011 FIFA Women's World Cup.[2] Hosts Vietnam had to play the qualifying round; in case of a non-qualification, another host would have been chosen.

Squads[edit]

Group stage[edit]

The eight teams were drawn into two groups of four teams. Each team then played the others in their group once. The top two teams advanced to the semifinals, and the two third-placed teams played a play-off match for fifth place and the final World Cup qualifying spot. The draw was held on 29 November 2013.[6][7] In the group stage, teams tied in the points were ranked by the following criteria:[8]

  1. Greater number of points between the teams concerned,
  2. Goal differences between the teams concerned,
  3. Number of goals between the teams concerned,
  4. Goal differences between in all round-robin matches,
  5. Number of goals between in all round-robin matches,
  6. Penalty shoot-out (in case just two teams playing the final match tied in the all conditions above),
  7. Fewer yellow and red card points in all group matches (1 point for each yellow card, 3 points for each red card as a consequence of two yellow cards, 3 points for each direct red card, 4 points for each yellow card followed by a direct red card), and
  8. Drawing of lots.

All times are local (UTC+7).
