However, Laos’ Lamnao equalized the game with a goal of his own in the 38th minute.
Lamnao later struck again to extend Laos' lead in the 46th minute.
However, Beloya caught fire late in the game and score a stunning brace.
Beloya's first goal came in at the 90th minute following a defense-splitting pass from Mark Hartmann.
Beyola was not yet done. Showing superb control and touch, he fended off a defender and fired past the Laos goalkeeper in the 93rd minute.
