Winning the 2nd match in a row, U23 Thailand meets U23 Vietnam in the semi-finals
Only facing a weaker opponent in all aspects, Cambodia U23, Thailand U23 easily got a strong victory to consolidate second place in the group.
Going through the game’s progress, the fact that Thailand U23 is the team to take the initiative is in the predictions of many people. Right in the 4th minute, midfielder Woorachit opened the scoring with a dangerous free-kick that blocked the goalkeeper’s hand from Cambodia U23.
Having an early goal, Polking’s army was comfortable in the deployment of the ball. Many opportunities have come to Thailand’s U23 strikers, but it was not until the 31st minute that the gap was doubled with the goal of striker Korawich.
A few minutes later, midfielder Woorachit completed his double with a goal to raise the score to 3-0, to close a successful half for Thailand U23.
Entering the second half, the match was not much different from the first half, Thailand U23 still created considerable pressure on the Cambodian U23 side. If there was no vertical post and the crossbar refused, about the first 15 minutes of the second half the score would have been 6-0 for Thailand U23.
But in the end, whatever comes must come when the substitute striker Gustavsson has scored the 4th goal for Thailand U23 after a neat finish in the penalty area.
In the last minutes of the match, the heavy rain affected many professional qualities of the match. In the 89th minute, the goal to make the score 5-0 was set by striker Gustavsson for Thailand U23, after an accretion kick right next to Cambodia U23’s goal.
Thus, with the 2nd consecutive victory at this year’s SEA Games, Coach Polking’s army has regained its inherent form. However, they also could not win the top position when the match a few hours ago, U23 Malaysia had a draw against Singapore U23, thereby still standing at the top of the table with 7 points.
If the situation of Group B does not have any surprises, U23 Thailand is likely to meet the host U23 Vietnam in the semi-finals of this year’s SEA Games.
