Football personality Phijika Boonkwang has pledged a reward of LAK 40 million to the Laos national football team if they beat Thailand in the AFF U23 Championship.

Ms. ​Phijika, or Boa, as she is known, posted the pledge to her Facebook page earlier today.

I will give LAK 40 million to the Laos national football team if they can beat Thailand,” reads her post.

She states that another well-known businessman will provide a further LAK 10 million, bringing the total reward for the team to LAK 50 million, if the young football players can secure a victory against Thailand.

Ms. Boa is the former president of the Vientiane Football United club.

Laos is to proceed to the semi-finals at the AFF U23 Championship after defeating Malaysia twice during the Group B matches.

The two victories took many by surprise, with Malaysian media calling the defeat an “embarrassing loss.”

The Lao team has emerged victorious under the guidance of newly-appointed German coach Michael Weiss.

Laos will face off against Thailand tomorrow at 4 pm at Morodok Techo National Stadium, Phnom Penh, in Cambodia.
