Southeast Asia Thailand

Six most memorable World Cup wins in Southeast Asia football history

2. Thailand 3-0 United Arab Emirates (World Cup 2006 qualification)

Group leader United Arab Emirates came to Bangkok for the penultimate match of Group 5, and an away win would have put them in a very strong position.

Nontapan Jeansatawong’s only international goal opened the score for the home side before Anon Nanok doubled the tally and the legendary Therdsak Chaiman was there to seal a famous win.

The War Elephants finished third in Group 5 with 7 points from 6 matches, behind North Korea (11 points) and UAE (10 points), and didn’t qualify for the third round.
