Australia rout Cambodia 4-0 in U16 tournament opener

Cambodia were crushed 4-0 by Australia last night in their opening tie of the 2013 AFF U16 Championships in Myanmar.

The Joeys were three up after 33 minutes at Naypyidaw’s Zabuthiri Stadium through a Jackson Bandiera double sandwiched around a Jamie Dimitroff strike.

The Cambodians tightened up in the second half, but allowed Australia’s Daniel Maskins to sneak in late on to make it four off keeper Sim Mesa’s fumble.

Some points to take heart in and some points to learn from for the Kingdom’s boys, who take on Brunei at 4pm tomorrow.
