Cambodia edge Brunei to take third spot in Laos

Cambodia capped off a promising but ultimately disappointing run in the Suzuki Cup qualifiers with a 1-0 win over Brunei at the Chao Anouvong Stadium in Vientiane on Monday evening.

Chhin Chhoeun grabbed the only goal of the game on 56 minutes to see the Kingdom secure third in the table on six points behind toppers Myanmar (10 points), who pushed Laos (nine) into second thanks to a 2-1 victory over the hosts on Monday.

Cambodia’s Sok Chanrasmey and Laos’ Soukaphone Vongchiengkham were the top scorers at the qualifiers with four goals each.

Myanmar and Laos continued their record of making it to every finals stage of the biennial tournament since it began in 1996. Myanmar will head to Singapore next month to face the reigning champions in Group B together with 2010 titlists Malaysia and 2012 runners up Thailand.

Laos, meanwhile, will travel to Hanoi to enter Group A alongside 2008 winners Vietnam, the Philippines and four-time beaten finalists Indonesia.
