Bangkok: Thailand continued to flex their muscles at this year’s AFF Suzuki Cup with an emphatic come-from-behind 4-2 win over Indonesia at the Rajamangala National Stadium on Saturday.

Coming in off the back of a confidence-boosting 3-1 win over Timor-Leste earlier in the week, it was the visitors who had the better of the early chances and but for a sensational save with his boot from Sivarak Tedsungnoen would’ve taken a 26th minute lead courtesy of Stefano Lilipaly.

Bima Sakti's side did take the lead just three minutes later when Zulfiandi put in his contender for goal of the tournament with a sublime strike from long range to stun the home crowd.

Milovan Rajevac’s side weren’t behind for long, however, with Korrakot Wiriyaudomsiri scoring direct from a corner on 38 minutes, before turning provider with a wicked free kick deep in first half stoppage time which fell to the feet of Pansa Hemviboon, with the defender smashing the ball home from close range to give Thailand the lead going into half time. 

There was no let up from the home side in the second half as they turned the screws on Indonesia, and on 65 minutes they had a third when Adisak Kraisorn, who scored six in their opening match against Timor-Leste, scored his seventh of the tournament with a beautiful touch to beat two defenders before smashing the ball past a helpless Awan Setho.

Thailand added more salt into the wound with a fourth goal on 74 minutes. A quick break from defence saw Sanrawat Dechmitr play the ball through for Pokklaw Anan, who took his chance with skill and poise to lob Awan.

Indonesia pulled one back on 89 minutes when Fachruddin Aryanto headed home Riko Simanjuntak’s cross, and the visitors almost pulled another goal back just a minute later when Evan Dimas’ powerful shot was tipped over by Sivarak.

The Thai custodian was called on again to deny the visitors with an acrobatic save in stoppage time as Indonesia finished the stronger of the two sides, but it was too little too late as Thailand ran out 4-2 winners.

Thailand’s next assignment is away to the Philippines on Matchday Four, while Indonesia has just one match remaining the group stage, also against the Philippines on Matchday Five.
