Philippines crush Laos in Hanoi as hosts held to draw

The Philippines marked their intent on winning an inaugural AFF Suzuki Cup title with a 4-1 come-from-behind win over Laos on Saturday at the My Dinh National Stadium in Hanoi.

After Laos had opened the scoring on 21 minutes through Khampheng Sayavutthi, the Azkal’s Simone Rota equalised and Phil Younghusband edged them ahead in time added on of the first half.

A brace in the second session by Patrick Reichelt put the result beyond Laos, who next face Group A hosts Vietnam at the same ground tomorrow. In Saturday’s nighttime kickoff in Hanoi, 2008 winners Vietnam were held to a 2-2 draw by four-time runners up Indonesia.
