Cambodia end with win in AFF U19 tournament

Cambodia ended their AFF U19 Championship run in Indonesia on Tuesday with a rousing 3-2 victory over Singapore at the Petrokimia Stadium in Gresik, East Java.

A second-half blitz saw Nub Tola put Cambodia ahead, only for strikes by Singaporeans Muhammad Muhelmy and Muhammad Hazim Faiz to turn the tables.

East Timor edged the Philippines 2-1 at Delta Stadium in Sidoarjo on Tuesday to finish top of the group and will progress to tomorrow’s semi-finals along with second placed Laos.
