U16 qualifiers: Cambodia qualification hopes end

BANGKOK – The Cambodian U16 national team were soundly beaten for the third straight time in Bangkok Wednesday, falling 7-1 to Vietnam in their AFC U16 Championship qualifier. The result gives them no hope of qualification for next year’s tournament, although the youngsters can take small consolation in recording their first score of the trip. A brace from Nguy En Van Nui, and one from Nguy En Anh Phong gave Vietnam a 3-0 lead into the break. Dang Anh Tuan pushed them further ahead after the restart, before Cambodia’s Chan Vathanaka pegged one back in the 67th minute. Vietnam struck back a minute later, and knocked in two more before the end to run out comfortable winners. Dith Nimol, a Cambodian student attending the match, said the team showed improvement from the previous heavy defeats. “They had a few occasions to kick on their opponents’ side,” he said. “However, they preferred keeping the ball rather than attacking.” North Korea tops the group after three consecutive victories following a 2-1 win over South Korea Wednesday.
