Thais Take Top Spot in Style

Bangkok: Hosts Thailand stormed to the top of 2012 AFC U-16 Championship qualifying Group G with an emphatic 11-0 hammering of Guam on Wednesday. Jeerawut Kulchart began the goal festival at the Rajamangala Stadium in the 7th minute before Saran Puangbut doubled Thailand's lead just 60 seconds later.

Amnart Pamornprasert, who like Saran was on target in the Thais 3-2 win over Australia in Monday’s Group G opener, made in 3-0 in the 16th minute before Sittichok Kannoo got the first two of his five goal-haul with strikes in the 28th and 31st minutes.

Goals from Wasin Tiammuang (33rd) and Suchanon Malison (39th)  gave Thailand a 7-0 lead going into the break and there was no let up for Guam in the second-half with Sittichok completing his hat-trick two minutes after the restart.

Philip Jude Ogo received his marching orders in the 67th minute, with the Guam forward picking up his second yellow card of the match having already been booked in the 20th minute and Thailand needed just four minutes to make their numerical advantage count as Sittichok scored his fourth and Thailand’s ninth.

Suradet Klankham took the Thais tally to ten in the 82nd minute before Sittichok ended the one-sided match with number 11 one minute into stoppage time.

Indonesia sits one place below leaders Thailand on goal difference after they followed Monday’s 4-1 win over Myanmar with a 2-0 defeat of Hong Kong.

Midfielder Gavin Kwan Adsit¬† broke the deadlock with three minutes at the Yamaha Stadium played before Terens Puhuri, who hit a hat-trick in Indonesia’s victory over Myanmar, was on target again, sealing the win in the 84th minute.

In the remaining fixture Myanmar conceded four times for the second Group game, with the ASEAN side losing 4-0 to Australia.

Defender Benjamin Warland’s 20th minute opener gave the Joeys a 1-0 lead at half-time but three goals in ten minute spell towards the tail-end of the second half turned the contest firmly in Australia’s favour.

Daniel De Silva doubled his side’s advantage in the 76th minute before rounding off the win three minutes from time after West Ham United academy attacker Taylor Tombides had scored Australia’s third with his second in of the qualifying campaign in the 76th minute.
