Cambodian U19s win at Indonesia tournament

Cambodia grabbed a consolatory victory, their first of the 2013 AFF U19 Championship, when they came from behind to beat the Philippines 4-1 at the Petrokimia Stadium in Gresik, Indonesia, on Sunday.

The Philippines took the lead through Nikko Benedicto midway through the first half of the game between the two sides already destined for the exit in the regional tournament.

Cambodia’s Moung Makara netted the equaliser shortly after the restart and then went ahead on the hour mark as Nub Tola converted a fast break.

Two more goals late on by Va Bottroi and Sok Samnang sealed the rout for the Kingdom, who face Singapore at the same ground today from 3:30pm.

East Timor, who beat Group A leaders Laos 3-1 on Sunday, play the winless Philippines at 7:30pm with just a draw needed to confirm their advance to Friday’s semi-finals.
