FC Phuket trounce Thai Honda, Thawin breaks leg



PHUKET: FC Phuket played their best performance of the year last night, delighting the faithful at Surakul Stadium with a 6-1 rout of Thai Honda.

The Southern Sea Kirin opened the flood-gates early with Nene Bi Tra Sylvestre netting a header from close range at just three minutes.

Thawin Butsombat scored just before halftime to put FC Phuket up 2-0, but unfortunately suffered a broken leg from a tackle during his strike at goal.

Seven minutes into the second half Abdol Coulibaly put FC Phuket up 3-0 with another header, after which he prostrated himself to the crowd. It was his first goal for the side following a disastrous own goal that may have cost his side the match at Bangkok United.

Other goals by FC Phuket came at 62 minutes (Chao Jai Won), with Man of the Match Kone Adama netting a brace in the closing stages (79, 92 minutes).

Thai Honda’s Nana Yaw Asamoah netted his side’s only goal at 70 minutes.
