Sarina Bolden scores the Philippines' first-ever goal in the FIFA Women's World Cup

Finally, the Philippines has made its historic first goal in the FIFA Women's World Cup.

On Tuesday, Sarina Bolden scored the Philippine women's national football team first-ever goal in the World Cup against New Zealand. Bolden put the Filipinas' on the board in the 24th minute with a header off a cross from Sara Eggesvik in their match against the World Cup hosts.


Here's the historic goal for the country:



Crowds erupted for cheers in different watch parties in the Philippines after the said goal and eventually, the win.




Bolden's score, which was her 22nd international goal, put her alongside Quinley Quezada on the top of the list of players with most goals.

Prior to this, Katrina Guillou nearly made the country's first goal during the match against Switzerland last Friday. However, it was deemed as offside and was disallowed.

Head coach Alen Stajcic previously said facing the New Zealand Ferns will be a tall task but they will 'embrace' the challenge.

And today, they proved they were more than up for that challenge.
