Hong Kong: Australia made a huge step towards qualifications in the AFC U-16 Championship 2014 after edging unbeaten hosts Hong Kong 2-0 in the Group G qualifying match played at the Hong Kong Football Club on Friday.
Two goals within the space of six minutes separated the sides as Australia remained unbeaten with nine points from possible nine in the group.
Nicholas D’Agostino continued his fine form in front of the goal by netting Australia’s first in the 33rd minute. Six minute later Jake William doubled the lead which was enough for the Joeys to walk away with all three points from the match.
Hong Kong and Singapore are at second and third place respectively after suffering two wins and a defeat in their previous three matches. Australia face Singapore while Hong Kong meet Chinese Taipei in the final matches of the group on Sunday.
