Indonesia seal first AFF U19 title at home

Indonesia claimed their maiden title of the AFF U19 Championships by beating reigning champions Vietnam in the final on Sunday via a dramatic penalty shootout at the Delta Stadium in Sidoarjo, East Java.

With the teams unable to score during regulation and extra time, both missed two spotkicks from the first five rounds to send it to sudden death.

Another four rounds were needed before Vietnam’s Pham Duc Huy finally cracked under the pressure and saw his shot saved, granting the hosts their first trophy in nine editions of the annual tournament.

In a play-off held earlier, East Timor beat Laos 4-2 to take third place. Vietnam’s Nguyen Van Toan was the competition’s top scorer with six goals.
