Thailand rout Cambodia 4-0 in U22 Cup qualifier

Cambodia received their expected pasting from neighbouring nemeses Thailand yesterday during their Group F clash of the 2013 AFC U22 Asian Cup qualifiers held at the Chao Anouvong Stadium in Vientiane.

A pair of strikes in as many minutes just after the half-hour mark for Thailand’s Thitiphan Puangjan and Adisak Kraisorn was added to in the second session by Chananan Pombupha and Pokklaw A-Nan for a comprehensive final tally of 4-0.

Cambodia were pushed down to fourth in the table, while Thailand edged up to third. Meanwhile, China grabbed top spot in the group, thanks to a 5-1 stuffing of Hong Kong at the Laos National Stadium.

Cambodia’s next game is against the leaders on Thursday afternoon.
