Yapp Hung-fai: 6/10
Tried to save the goal but wasn’t fully concentrated. Made a crucial save later in the first half and did okay for the rest of the match.
Dani Cancela: 6/10
Partially responsible for the conceded goal. Stepped up the game in the second half.
Festus Baise: 7.5/10
Lively, solid performance and was unlucky to miss the goal in the first half. It is hard to believe that he is the oldest man in the squad.
Andy Russell: 6.5/10
Made a mistake that led to the goal, but did well after that until the end. Made some key clearances.
Cheng King-ho: 4.5/10
Being bullied in the first half on the right and unable to keep up the pace. Improved slightly after the break by involving in attack.
Huang Yang: 6/10
Good work rate, but could have done better, was outnumbered in the midfield.
Wong Wai: 6/10
Almost scored with the free-kick in the first half. Shown glimpses of creativity, but couldn’t do much playing deep in the midfield.
Xu Deshuai: 6/10
Caused some problems in the first half, until he went down injured later on. Good effort.
Jaimes McKee: 5.5/10
Not at his best form, but worked hard to fight for possession. Had a chance in the second half, but the close range attempt was saved by Siwarak Tedsungnoen.
Paul Olivier Ngue: 6.5/10
Strong in the air, protected the ball well and tried to make some link up plays with teammates. Apparently, a few Thai players found it difficult to deal with his strength.

Did well. Created some chances up front. Missed a golden chance in the first half.
Leung Chun Pong: 6/10
Was given more space in the second half but failed to impress.

Looked sharp on his first debut, always a threat. Did everything brilliantly, except the finish.
Lee Ka-yiu: 6/10
Active in attack and a few crosses
Alessandro Ferreira Leonardo: 7/10
Gave Giovane the support he needed up front, with some decent one touch passes, protected the ball well.
Tan Chun Lok: 6.5/10
Strong in the midfield, made some interceptions and quality set-pieces.
Tsang Kam To: 6/10
Got a chance in added time, but other than that had little time to make an impression.
