|Head coach David Booth at the press conference|
We felt that after 15-20 minutes, their back four was quite square, so we were looking to play 1-2's and round the side of them and it worked well. For this level of competition, I withdrew our two wider players. They are both quite quick. It worked for us today and it gave us a lot of chances in the first-half. I think the Bhutan team suffered with the weather today, it destroyed them really. Our players train in this heat so we are more used to it.
In the second-half, I felt the wind would hold the ball up better for us and I told the team to get the ball up to the front men, support them, more 1-2's, and play behind them as that's where the danger was. We had a lot of chances. If we'd scored more it would've been a little embarrassing.
It will be a different game on Monday against Nepal. We need to tighten up our concentration. We didn't cover each other well enough at the back. We are not the strongest team by a mile - we've got to be very careful. We've got one result, if we can get another win, somehow, whichever way we can, we'll go through. So Monday is a very important game for us. I'd rather win on Monday then need to win on Wednesday.
I don't think Emmanuel will play again in this competition. His injury is far worse than it looks. I think it's a torn calf muscle, it wasn't a kick, just a twist. Sok Pheng got injured as well; he asked to come off just before he scored his goal. He doesn't score easy goals, no tap-in's, he only scores fantastic goals. Tiny also has one or two bumps to sort out."
Hat-trick hero Khim Borey was upbeat after the final whistle. "I'm very happy and excited to score a hat-trick for my club today. It's very important for the team and for my own confidence. I felt our team understood each other, we passed well and co-operated together against the Bhutan team. 8 goals was wonderful but we wanted more. For the next match, the Nepal team is a very good team but both the team and myself will try our very best to win on Monday. We know what we have to do."
