PETALING JAYA: The Harimau Muda Under-16 team went on a scoring spree at the Asia Champions Trophy (ACT), thrashing Timor Leste 9-0 for their biggest win at the Frenz Stadium in Janda Baik, Pahang.
The win on Tuesday gave the Malaysians 17 points from eight matches in Group A. S. Balachandran’s team are now on course to join leaders PVF Vietnam, on 22 points, for a place in the semi-finals.
Kogileswaran Raj was the hero, scoring a hat-trick (21st, 60th and 69 minutes) to lead the tournament’s scorers list with eight goals. Muhd Najmuddin Samat (24th, 54th), Najib Abdullah (44th, 51st), Muhd Zulkhairi (45th) and Ahmad Fahmi Mohd Shohir (84th) contributed the other goals.
Harimau Muda now need only a win from their remaining two matches against PVF Vietnam on July 12 and July 19 to clinch their ticket to the last four.
Frenz United Malaysia, the other Malaysian representatives, are virtually through to the semi-finals from Group B. They are second with 19 points, one behind leaders Chonburi FC of Thailand.
Frenz United Malaysia will complete their group fixtures against Myanmar Academy FC on July 12 and July 19.
