Vietnam nab crucial away win

Vietnam defeated Philippines 2-1 in their AFF Suzuki Cup semi-final 1st leg at the Panaad Stadium in Bacolod, Philippines.

The win leaves Vietnam in a strong position to progress to the final having secured a crucial away goal ahead of the 2nd leg at the My Dinh National Stadium on Thursday.

Vietnam put themselves ahead from as early as the 12th minute when Doan Van Hau’s lofted ball caught out the Philippines defence for Nguyen Anh Duc to send a looping header over goalkeeper Michael Falkesgaard.

But Philippines were able to find a way back in the first-half stoppage time thanks to a well taken close range volley from Patrick Reichelt.

Vietnam restored their lead early on in the second half through Phan Van Duc who broke the offside trap and slotted home a cool finish.
