Malaysians staying on track for title defence

Defending SEA Games men’s champions Malaysia sealed a spot in today’s football semi-finals with a decisive 2-1 victory over Vietnam on Tuesday in which all three goals were scored in the dying moments.

Ashri Chuchu and D Saarvindran had put the result beyond doubt in the 81st and 89th minutes respectively, although Mac Hong Quan grabbed a consolation goal for the five-time silver medallists.

Malaysia will face Indonesia, who they beat via penalties in the final two years ago, at 4:30pm Cambodian time today at Naypyidaw’s Zayar Thiri Stadium. Eleven-time gold medal winners Thailand take on Singapore in the other semi-final at 7:15pm.
