Bangkok (People’s Daily) – China defeated Thailand 2-0 in Bangkok on Saturday thanks to striker Wu Lei’s brace, revenging a humiliating 5-1 home defeat to Thailand in 2013.
Shanghai SIPG forward Wu scored his first goal in the 34th minute before netting his second goal with a curve in the 73th minute in a rain-plagued match.
The rain forced a 30-minute postponement of resuming the second half.
The game also witnessed China’s captain Zheng Zhi enjoying his century of national team appearance.
