Three more goals in the second half
Indonesia made some changes at the start of the second half, bringing in Evan Dimas, I Kadek Agung Widnyana, and Elkan Baggott.
But moments later, Thailand scored their second goal with another strike from captain Chanatip.
About 15 minutes later, Supachok Sarachat found the back of the net from outside the box, giving Thailand their third goal of the game.
Thailand sealed their victory on the 83rd minute with a goal from Bordin Phala.
