Bangkok: Thailand took a step closer to the 2012 AFC Futsal Championship with an emphatic 17-2 victory over the Philippines which saw the ASEAN Zone qualification hosts book their place in the semi-finals of the qualifiers alongside Indonesia.

 

Edward Mallari gave the Philippines a shock 5th minute lead at the Krungthep Thonburi Indoor Stadium but it only delayed the inevitable as the Thais took firm control of the Group B fixture.

Thailand skipper Kritsada Wongkaeo led the onslaught with six goals (11th, 19th, 28th, 28th 29th and 29th) to take his personal tally to nine in two games while Suphawat Thueanklang followed up his four goal haul in the 13-0 win over Myanmar with a three minute, first-half hat-trick (13th 14th and 16th).

Jetsada Chudech also weighed in with a treble (9th, 16th and 36th) while two goals each were scored by Nattavut Madyalan (7th and 16th) and Apiwat Chaemcharoen (15th and 31st).

Piyapan Ratana was also on target for Thailand, scoring in the 33rd minute, while Rowel Abello accounted for the Philippines other goal, which came in the 27th minute.

Thailand's victory and Indonesia's 8-2 win over Myanmar in Wednesday's earlier fixture sets up a thrilling top-of-the-table clash on Thursday while the Philippines take on Myanmar in a battle to avoid the wooden spoon.
