THONG NHAT (19 August 2019) – A hat trick from Mochammad Supriadi led Indonesia to the third spot in the AFF Under-18 Next Media Cup 2019 when they thrashed Myanmar 5-0 in the classification that was played at the Thong Nhat Stadium.
“The players showed their commitment today where even though we were not playing for the title, they still played hard to finish the competition on third,” said Indonesia head coach Fakhri Hussaini.
The battle was keen at the start but Myanmar seemed to have lost the plot as the game wore on and one single mistake led to their downfall as Indonesia plundered five goals in less than ten minutes.
Supriadi was on target in the 38th, 42nd and 45th minute as Beckham Putra Nugraha added two other goals in the 37th and 44th minute.
“I humbly apologize to all fans and people from Myanmar as we did not play well today. We conceded easy goals within ten minutes. I am really, really sorry,” said Myanmar head coach Soe Myat Min.
