Thai giants fade away as All Stars run out victors

Visiting Thailand’s premier league runners-up Muangthong United blew a two-goal lead as the K-Cement Cambodian All Stars produced a second-half blitz to come away with a 4-3 win in a charity friendly on Saturday.

Playing his first match for Muangthong, 20-year-old Chaiyawat made a dream start by scoring with a low, hard shot. Minutes later, Kasidech doubled the lead with a long ranger.

The all-important break for coach Prak Sovanara’s side came moments before the break when Phnom Penh Crown’s hitman Shane Booysen found the target.

After half time, it was the All Stars who grabbed the momentum with Masahiro flicking home an off-shoot from Rous Samoeun’s volley.

The Metfone C League top scorer and MVP Chan Vathanaka set the game alight with a double strike in a matter of minutes, leaving Munagthong plenty of work to do in the last 15 minutes.

Sareach Yuyen scored for in the 78th minute for the Thai side but that was all they could muster as Cambodia ran out victors.
