| BANGKOK (Oct 16, 2007) – Thailand moved into the second round of the 2010 World Cup qualifiers when they blasted Macau 7-1 on the road last night for an aggregate 13-2 victory over two legs.
Following from their 6-1 victory over the same side a week ago in Bangkok, the Thais were in no compromising mood as they took a 3-0 lead at the break off goals from Teerasil Dangda (22nd minute), Suree Sukha (38th) and Nirut Surasiang (42nd).
Further goals from Datsakorn Thonglao (48th), Sarayuth Chaikamdee (52nd and 86th) and then an own goal from Macau’s Lam Ka Koi in the 57th minute completed the rout.
“Macau had to attack and that gave us more room,” said Thailand head coach Chanvit Phalajivin afterwards.
“It is good to see our second team players perform so I can compare them to the first team lads.”
Even without key regulars from BEC Tero and TOT FC, the Thais were in dominant form from the very whistle as they dictate the pace of the game which was played at the Macau University of Science and Technology.
Macau’s only goal of the match came off Chan Kin Seng after the break.
