Today’s Group A clash at 4:30pm Cambodian time at Naypyidaw’s Zaya Thiri Stadium between Vietnam and Malaysia is crucial to see who will join Singapore in the next phase.
Vietnam need to win to inflict a surprise elimination on the reigning champions. The 7:15pm kickoff between Laos and Brunei will decide who ends up fourth or fifth in the group.
