Park Hang-seo’s troops were a constant threat in the first half before smashing four straight goals in a booming second half to affirm their role as “kings” of Southeast Asian football.

The resounding victory has helped the AFF Cup champions to hold on to the top spot in Group G with 14 points and a six-game unbeaten run (four wins and two draws), two clear of the UAE and five above Thailand and Malaysia, thus gaining the upper hand in the race for potentially their first-ever slot in the last round of the World Cup qualifying campaign.
