Singapore, Thailand vie for fourth-time glory

Singapore and Thailand, both three-times champions, will contest the two-leg final of the 2012 AFF Suzuki Cup final.

Singapore edged into the championship round on Wednesday night after Khairul Amri’s first-half strike was enough to see off the Philippines 1-0 on aggregate.

Thailand then joined them with a 2-0 win last night against defending champions Malaysia, who had defender Mohammed Fadhli Shas given a straight red at the end of the first half, to seal a 3-1 aggregate victory.

Thai Player of the Year Teerasil Dangda broke the deadlock just past the hour mark, and team-mate Theerton Bunmathan securing their advance with a second goal minutes later.

The teams will play the first leg at the Jalan Besar Stadium in Singapore on Sunday, with kick-off slated for 7pm Cambodian time.
