Thailand hotshot Sompong Soleb celebrates completing his hat trick against East Timor during their Group A U23 men’s football match Tuesday at Chao Anouvong stadium in Vientiane. The Thailand team inflicted yet another heavy defeat on the hapless East Timor, knocking in nine to no reply Tuesday at the Chao Anouvong stadium in Vientiane. 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.
