Thailand advanced to the semi-finals of the 2014 ASEAN Football Federation (AFF) Championship on Wednesday after coming from behind twice to beat Malaysia 3-2. Malaysia had taken the lead at the Jalan Besar Stadium in the 28th minute after Safiq Rahim’s neat layoff found Amri Yahyah, who proceeded to fire a shot into the bottom corner from the edge of the area. But two minutes before half-time, the War Elephants equalised when Adisak Kraisorn raced into the box to meet Charyl Chappuis’ left-wing cross and stabbed a first-time shot past the onrushing Khairul Fahmi. A fine individual effort from Safiq then put Harimau Malaya back in front a minute after the hour mark, as he effortlessly made his way past a couple of defenders before curling a low shot beyond Kawin Thamsatchanan’s despairing dive. Again, the Thais were able to pull level in the 72nd minute when Chappuis sent an emphatic strike into the back of the net, after Chanathip Songkrasin had laid the ball back into his path. And in the 90th minute, Thailand went on to claim all three points when Prakit Deeprom found space down the right and crossed to Adisak, who took the ball into his stride before finishing with aplomb past Fahmi at the near post." - AFC

Goals in either half from Kirati Keawsombat and Adisak Kraisorn wrapped up the friendly win at the 80th Birthday Stadium to provide Thailand a boost ahead of their Championship opener against Singapore on Sunday.... Thailand responded and saw an effort hit the crossbar before Keawsombat opened the scoring a minute from the break. After the ball was cut back into the area, the PTT Rayong striker drove home from inside the area to give the hosts a half-time lead.... However, when Jacob Gleeson parried a long-range effort, Kraisorn snaffled up the rebound to wrap up the win - bolstering Thailand ahead of their Group A opener against the defending champions in Singapore at the weekend." - SoccerWay
