Indonesia edge out the Philippines in semifinal

A Cristian Gonzales’ goal two minutes before half-time proved decisive for Indonesia in the second leg of their 2010 Suzuki Cup semifinal against the Philippines on Sunday. With an identical 1-0 result carried over from the first leg, Indonesia booked their place in the final with a 2-0 aggregate score. They now face neighbouring rivals Malaysia – who they thrashed 5-1 earlier in the group stage of the competition – in home and away legs on December 26 and 29 for the title. Whatever the outcome in the final, a new name is now guaranteed to adorn the Suzuki Cup trophy this year.
