U19s stay on course after Brunei rout

Cambodia’s U19s remain on course for making the knockout stage of 2015 after thrashing Brunei 5-1 in their second match in Group A on Monday at Vientiane’s Laos National Stadium, after a 0-0 draw against hosts Laos on Saturday.

The Kingdom’s Sath Rosib put his team 2-0 up in the first half with a pair of spectacular goals in the 9th and 39th minute.

Son Vandeth, Chin Vannak and Touch Roma added three more in the second half before Mohammad Akif Bin Soslan of Brunei, who lost to the Philippines 2-1 on Saturday’s opening day, grabbed a consolation from the penalty spot.

Cambodia’s U19s are in Group A alongside hosts Laos, group favourites Thailand, the Philippines and Brunei, and play the Philippines on Friday before meeting Thailand on Sunday in their final group game.
