Yogyakarta: Vietnam’s Thai Son Nam opened their AFC Futsal Club Championship Indonesia 2018 campaign in fabulous fashion, beating Jeonju MAG FC of Korea Republic 10-1 at the Gor Amongrogo on Wednesday.
Less that two minutes into the match, Nguyen Minh Tri scored Thai Son Nam’s first goal with a superb strike, courtesy of a deflected pass from Abdulrahman Al Tawail.
Despite the early goal advantage, Miguel Rodrigo’s charges took their time with the ball and played cautiously but pressuring Jeonju into a defensive formation.
Thirteen minutes in, Thai Son Nam showed their prowess with set-pieces as Minh Tri’s corner kick saw the ball sailing into the danger area, and Roberto Tobe took advantage of the scramble to tap home.
In the final minutes of the first half, Jeonju showed sparks of life as they looked to reduce the two-goal deficit, but Thai Son Nam held their nerves.
