Vietnam to face Malaysia in the FINAL!

Vietnam scored two late goals in the last seven minutes of game time to secure a 2-1 (4-2 agg) win over Philippines in the AFF Suzuki Cup 2018 semi-final second leg.

Having won 2-1 in Bacolod, Philippines in the first leg on Sunday, Vietnam were very much favourites to advance.

The early stages of the match saw both sides cancelling each other out and fans had to wait until the 83rd minute for the first goal.

Philippines’ Amani Aguinaldo carelessly gave the ball away to Phan Van Duc who squared the ball to teammate Nguyen Quang Hai for an easy finish from six metres out.

Four minutes later, Nguyen Cong Phuong doubled their lead, and although James Younghusband pulled one back in the 89th minute for the Philippines, it was too little too late.

Vietnam will now face Malaysia in the AFF Suzuki Cup Final first leg on 11 December at the Bukit Jalil National Stadium.
