However, moments later, and seconds before the half time whistle blew, Phuket’s Brazilian striker Ney Fabiano put his head onto a great cross and powered the header down and past the Chonburi keeper.

Although both teams created a lot of chances in the second half neither team could find the back of the net and the game finished at 1- 1.
