Thailand went down to China 0-2 under the dampened condition in their International Friendly game at the Rajamangala National Stadium on Saturday.



The Marcello Lippi’s squad proved more accurate in their scoring attempts despite playing on the wet pitch caused by heavy downpour in the second half.

Assisted by Zhi Xiao, Lei Wu put China up-front first with his attempt in the 34 th minute.

Just before the start of the second half, heavy rain shower caused unplayable condition, forcing a 30-minute delay.

Consadole Sapporo’s striker Chanathip Songkrasin almost found an equalizer in the second half but he failed to capitalize on his two attempts.

China extended to 2-0 in the 74th minute after a brilliant kick from Lei went past Thai goalie Kawin Thamsatchanan and found the net.
