Search interest in the Philippine women's national football team reached a global all-time high following its FIFA Women's World Cup debut and historic win against host country New Zealand.

Google Trends on X (formerly Twitter) shared an art card indicating that the Filipino women's team last trended in 2004, the team's first appearance at the AFF Women's Championship in Vietnam.

"Still riding the high from last night's game? You're not alone," Google Trends said.

On its dedicated 2023 Women's World Cup page, Google Trends also shared a line graph showing how the Philippines is topping search interest as a team making its World Cup debut alongside Haiti, Morocco, Panama, Portugal, Ireland, Vietnam, and Zambia.

The national team's jersey is also among the breakout searches in the United States.

Sportswear brand adidas made "women-specific" uniform kits for the Pinays.

To date, the country's players Olivia McDaniel, Jessica Cowart, Sarina Bolden, and Sara Eggsevik are among the top search trends in the United States.

"Philippines," "Philippines World Cup," and "Philippines vs. New Zealand" are also part of the rising queries.

Team Philippines secured its historic first goal thanks to striker Bolden.

The country will face Norway next on July 30 in a bid to advance to the knockout rounds.
