Thailand thrash Singapore by six goals to send Lions crashing out of AFF U-19 Championship

Lions sent packing after being tormented by the Thais

Thailand hammered six goals past Singapore leaving the Lions with no chance of making it through to the knockout stages of the Asean Football Federation (AFF) U-19 Championship. Singapore for all their worth had no reply at the Gelora Delta stadium in Sidoarjo, Indonesia.

Pitak Papirom opened the floodgates after just six minutes before Metee Sarakhum added a second in the 28th minute. Sittichoke Paso made it three before the break and Nakhin Wisetchart scored just three minutes into the second half.

Metee netted his second on the night in the 73rd minute and Buriram United youngster Supanat Mueanta added a sixth with 11 minutes left to play as the Thais dominated from start to end. Singapore still have two games to play and will be hoping to do better than their first three matches where they conceded 12 goals and scored just once. Joining Singapore will be Laos who crashed out of the competition after being outclassed by Vietnam in a 4-1 scoreline.
