Lebanon were fortunate to take a fourth-minute lead when Phoutpasong Sengdalavong headed into his own net before Fayez Chamsine's strike wrapped up all three points 15 minutes from time.The best of those chances presented itself in the 31st minute, with Antar's clipped ball over the Laos defense allowing Chamsine to run into the box unopposed, but with three Lebanon players unmarked, the 22-year-old inexplicably elected to go for goal with the resulting shot wild and off target.Once again, the final ball fell to the wrong man, as Chamsine fired his effort straight at Sengdalavong when it appeared easier to score.Maatouk, who floated around the pitch in a multitude of positions during the second half, once more unlocked the Laos rearguard with a trenchant through-ball.His slide-rule pass was latched onto by Chamsine and, with Sengdalavong scurrying off his line, he rounded the goalkeeper and stroked his shot into the empty net to belatedly put the tie to bed and get Lebanon's World Cup qualification campaign up and running.
