National Under-19 team finish AFC qualifiers winless

Wednesday, October 7, 2015

THE national Under-19 football team (Tabuan Under-19) ended their Group G campaign at the 2016 Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Under-19 Championship qualifiers with a 5-0 defeat to Hong Kong yesterday – leaving them without a win or a goal to their name in the tournament.
It was the fourth consecutive loss for Brunei at the competition in Yangon, Myanmar, where they conceded 18 goals.
They were also winless in the previous edition of the qualifiers two years ago in Thailand, losing all three of their matches conceding 16 times and scoring once.
Chan Pak Hei scored the opener for Hong Kong in the 39th minute at the Youth Training Centre yesterday and the advantage was doubled just two minutes later with Ngan Cheuk Pan netting.
Harima Hirokane made it 3-0 in the 49th minute and Hong Kong were four goals up with Ngan netting his second of the game in the 58th minute. Cheng Chin Lung got his name on the scoresheet in the 73rd minute to complete the rout.
The Sultanate started off this year’s campaign with a 4-0 loss at the hands of Timor Leste last Monday before falling by the same scoreline to Myanmar two days later.
They were out of contention to qualify for the tournament proper after getting hammered 5-0 by Vietnam on Friday.
Vietnam completed the group flawless with four wins after edging Myanmar 1-0 courtesy of a Ha Duc Chinh goal in yesterday’s other match.
