Youth Football: Cambodia humbled 4-1 by Vietnam

Youth Footbal
Cambodia suffered a 4-1 thrashing at the hands of Vietnam on Tuesday night at the AFF U16 Youth Championships in Vientiane.

Vietnam took the lead on 30 minutes through Trieu Viet Hung only for Cambodia’s Firo Fi In to level things four minutes later. Vietnam then secured their first win of the tournament with a three-goal blitz in the second half, including strikes by Nguyen Quang Hai, Do Duy Manh and another for Trieu Viet Hung.

Cambodia now face the seemingly impossible task of overhauling Singapore in their last group B match on Saturday, with the City State side having brushed aside Vietnam and the Philippines by the same 5-0 scoreline.

The top two of the five-team group will advance to semifinals against their group A counterparts next Monday. Cambodia, who beat the Philippine and drew with Myanmar, need to take all three points from the Singapore match to make the semis.

In Tuesday’s other group B game, Myanmar beat the Philippines 2-1 to move above Cambodia and into second spot. Hosts Laos, meanwhile, seem set to qualify from Group A along with Thailand. The final is slated for next Wednesday.
