Thursday, August 29, 2013

The national Under-16 football ended their ASEAN Football Federation (AFF) Under-16 Championship 2013 campaign with a 11-0 defeat to Vietnam yesterday.

The Sultanate have lost all four of their Group A matches in the tournament, starting with an 8-0 defeat to Cambodia, a 19-0 humiliation to Australia and a 5-0 loss to hosts Myanmar.

With the defeat at the Wunna Theikdi Stadium in Napyidaw, Brunei have now let in a total of 43 goals without scoring a single goal and close their campaign firmly rooted at the bottom of the table without a point to their name.

Meanwhile, Vietnam finished the group stage second behind Australia with nine points from four matches.

According to the AFF website, Nguyen Van Huy scored four goals for Vietnam (10th, 40th, 70th and 82nd minute), while captain Hoang The Tai (7th and 90th) and Ngueyn Doan Trung Nhan (8th and 90th) found the net twice.

Danh Van Danh (72nd) and Ngueyn Huu Tuan (89th) also got their name on the scoresheet with a goal apiece.

Brunei defender Hafiz Roshidi also managed to get his name on the scoresheet with an own goal in the 26th minute.

Australia finished their group matches with a perfect record when they disposed of Vietnam 3-0 in their final group tie at the Wunna Theikdi Stadium on Monday.

The Aussies completed the group stage of the competition by scoring 29 goals and not even conceding even once making them the firm favourites for the title this year.

Meanwhile Myanmar finished third in the group after beating Cambodia 2-1. The hosts which had conceded losses to Vietnam and then Australia fought bravely in their last game in the group to score a goal in each half.

A goal from Sa Aung Pyea Ko and an own goal from Cambodian defender Suon Nquet saw Myanmar walking away with their second win in the tournament after 5-0 win over Brunei on Monday.

Myanmar won their match 2-1 against Cambodia in last night's other match.

The win put them in third and Cambodia fourth on the Group A table.

The action continues today with the final Group B matches.

Table leaders Malaysia with three wins and one draw will be taking on Indonesia who are second on the table in the first game.

The last match will be between Singapore, who stand third in the table, and Laos.

It will be a vital match for the top three countries as the turnout determines who will make it into the semi-finals that will take place on Saturday.
