Brief: SKoreans' 11 heaven

BANGKOK – The situation of Cambodian U16 national team became even worse Sunday, after a 11-0 demolition by South Korea in their AFC 2010 qualifier in Bangkok. The South Koreans blasted in six goals in the first half, including three in the last three minutes. The second half started with even more misery for the Cambodian youngsters, with substitute Kang Tae Woong scoring in his first minute of play, Hwang Sin Young completing his hat trick a minute later, and Cambodian defender Soun Rotha conceding an own goal. With a negative goal difference of 19 from their first two games, Cambodia are dead last in Group G, while North Korea lead following a 5-1 drubbing of Myanmar. Hosts Thailand drop to third after losing 1-0 to Vietnam. A slight respite is that the Philippines in Group E and Macau in Group F boast worse goal difference (-25 and -48 respectively), although both teams have scored a goal. Cambodia next face Vietnam at the Royal Thai Army Stadium on Wednesday.
