President Ferdinand "Bongbong" Marcos Jr. on Wednesday praised the Philippine women's soccer team for their first victory at the 2023 FIFA World Cup.

“Congratulations to our Philippine Women’s National Football Team on their historic triumph against New Zealand at the FIFA Women's World Cup! A momentous first-ever world cup win for the Philippines!” Marcos said in a tweet.

The Filipinas achieved history by defeating New Zealand 1-0 after a match played in Wellington, New Zealand.

As a result of the Philippine goalie Olivia McDaniel's tenacious defense throughout the game, New Zealand was unable to score a single goal.

Manila striker Sarina Bolden added a header in the 24th minute off a cross from Sarah Eggesvik to give her team a 1-0 lead.

"It means everything to us … We put our head down, we came in focused, we had a goal in mind and we achieved it. We couldn't have asked for better," said McDaniel in an interview after the game.
