The Joeys have thumped Malaysia 7-1 to progress into the semi finals of the AFF U-16 Championships in Cambodia.

The hero was John Roberts with four second half goals for the green and gold. 

At the national Olympic stadium in Phnom Penh, Jacob Italiano's goal gave Australia a 1-0 lead at the break before the goals rained in.
