Thailand suffer heart-breaking defeat in King's Cup

By The Nation




Vietnam underlined their supremacy over Thailand following a 1-0 victory in the King’s Cup football tournament at Chang Arena on Wednesday.




After 90 minutes of sea-saw battle of high tension between the two nations that led to minor quarrel and five yellow cards, Nguyen  Anh Duc broke the ice during the injury time with a header that OH Leuven’s goalkeeper Kawin Thamsatchanan was unable to stop.


It was the 12th goal of the 33-year-old Duc, a Becamex Binh Duong forward who has represented Vietnam’s senior team since 2006.


Thailand once again failed to redeem their pride against the neighbouring country following a 4-0 defeat in the AFC U-23 Championship Qualification in March.


Vietnam, winner of the AFF Suzuki Cup last year, will play the Friday’s final game with Curacao who beat India 3-1 in the other game competed earlier in the day. Thailand and India will compete for the third place.
