Ngwa the hero as AEU stun champions Crown

In the biggest upset of the season so far, Asia Europe United, loitering at the bottom of the Metfone C-League table with five defeats and two draws in seven outings, punched well above their weight to down defending champions Phnom Penh Crown 2-0 at the RSN Stadium yesterday evening.

The hero of AEU’s finest hour was Baldwin Ngwa, who accounted for both goals, one in each half.

A 20th-minute penalty conversion by Ngwa raised AEU expectations and within minutes of the resumption he doubled the lead to inflict the third defeat in eight matches on the six-time champions.

The win moves AEU up to eighth place.
