Sompong notched his second hat trick of the tournament, and braces by Anawin Jujeen and Apipoo Suntornpanavej, and one each from Piyachart Thamaphan and Kriangkrai Pimrat completed the rout. East Timor have now lost all of their four group matches, conceding 28 goals. Joao Correia Pereira recorded the side’s only goal of the competition, against Cambodia on Sunday.
