Cambodia back on the Suzuki track

Cambodia back on the Suzuki track

Cambodia registered a 4-2 won over Timor Leste to put their AFF Suzuki Cup 2010 qualifying campaign back on track in Laos on Sunday.

The Cambodians had been held to a goalless draw by Laos in their opening qualifier, but Khim Borey's hat-trick handed them a vital victory against a Timor Lesete side which is now rooted to the bottom of the qualifying table.

With two places up for grabs at December's ASEAN grand gathering, Chiquito Do Carmo gave East Timor the lead before Borey scored three times in a frantic 14-minute, first-half spell

Substitute Nuth Sinoun added a fourth for Cambodia, although a late Anggisun strike provided Timor Leste with some consolation.

Also on Sunday, the Philippines had the Younghusband brothers to thank after Simon McMenemy's charges battled back from the brink of defeat to earn a 2-2 draw with Laos.

Goals from Soukhaphone Vongchiengkham and Kanlaya Sysomvang had seemingly put Laos on their way to a crucial win.

However, Philip Younghusband pulled one back from the penalty spot in the 76th minute, and his elder brother leveled matters deep into stoppage time to leave the Philippines top of the four-team group on goal difference from Cambodia.

The top placed team from the qualifying tournament will face Indonesia, Malaysia and Thailand, while the runners-up will play in Group B where they will be up against Vietnam, Singapore and Myanmar.

The final round of qualification games take place on Sunday when Cambodia tackle the Philippines and Laos play Timor Leste.
