Bangkok: Thailand made it three-out-of-three in Group A of the ASEAN Zone qualifiers for the 2012 AFC Futsal Championship to set up a final-four meeting with Group B runners-up Australia.

 

The hosts and Indonesia had already assured themselves of a place in the semis meaning Thursday's fixture at the Kiraves Indoor Stadium would determine who would finish first and second in the standings.

Indonesia took a second minute lead when Afif Tamimy maintained his record of a goal-a-game but the advantage lasted just two minutes with Thankorn Penpakul levelling for Thailand.

Suphawut Thueanklang made it 2-1 to Thailand with his eighth goal of the campaign before Jetsada Chudech gave the hosts a two-goal cushion to take into the break.

Jetsada scored his second and Thailand's fourth in the 31st minute before Jirawat Sornwichian struck number five in the 36th minute, three minutes after Caisar Oktavianus Silitonga had pulled another one back for Indonesia, who will face Group B winners Vietnam in Saturday's semis.

The two finalists and the winner of the third-place playoff on Sunday will advance to the 2012 AFC Futsal Championship finals which will be held in the UAE in May.

In the other Group A match, which took place at the same time over at the Krungthep Thonburi Indoor Stadium, the Philippines ended their campaign on a high note with a narrow 2-1, come-from-behind win over Myanmar.

Tin Win Ko Ko gave Myanmar a sixth minute lead but second-half goals from Edward Mallari (21st) and Robert Ravelo (31st) saw the Philippines finish third.
