Thailand shuts down Philippines in pre-Suzuki Cup tune-up

By Dugout Philippines

The Philippine Azkals suffered a huge beating from Thailand after bowing down, 0-3, in a FIFA friendly between AFF Suzuki Cup favorites at the latter's home turf.

Mongkol Thosakrai drew first blood for the hosts after scoring in the 30th minute of play.

Prakit Deeprom duplicated in the 54th minute, while Kroekrit Thawikan sealed the win in the 74th minute.

The Azkals, who made an interesting starting lineup tweak by playing Phil Younghusband off the bench, will return home on Friday for their final pre-AFF Suzuki Cup friendly against Nepal.
