BEN Davis was a substitute as Thailand Under 23s progressed to the semi-final of the Southeast Asian Games.

Thailand finished top of Group B with a 1-0 win against Laos, a first half own goal enough to secure top spot and a semi-final against Indonesia on Thursday.

Oxford United midfielder Davis helped Thailand dish out two 5-0 thrashings in their previous games against Singapore and then Cambodia.

The 21-year-old bagged a penalty in the win against Singapore and hit the woodwork twice against Cambodia, striking the top of the crossbar and post with shots from the edge of the penalty area.

Davis joined United from Fulham on transfer deadline day last summer, signing a two-year deal.

He has made one appearance for the U’s, coming on as a late substitute during the 2-1 Papa John’s Trophy defeat to Stevenage last October.
