China defeats Cambodia 3-0 in U22 Cup qualifiers

Cambodia couldn’t contain the might of China yesterday in their 2013 AFC U22 Asian Cup qualifier Group F game in Vientiane, with a 3-0 victory taking the Chinese to the top of the table.

Two quick-fire, first-half goals from midfielders Murehemaitijiang Mozhapa and Ni Yusong, and a third at the death by defender Li Lei, effectively ended the Kingdom’s chances of grabbing one of two automatic qualifying spots for the finals.

Cambodia will meet second-placed North Korea in their penultimate group game at 4pm tomorrow at the Chao Anouvong Stadium, as group leaders China take on Thailand at the Laos National Stadium before Hong Kong and hosts Laos clash at 7pm.
