REPORT: Vietnam 2 Philippines 1 (Vietnam win 4-2 on aggregate)

Hanoi: Vietnam will play Malaysia in the 2018 AFF Suzuki Cup final after late goals from Nguyen Quang Hai and Nguyen Cong Phuong helped secure a 2-1 victory over the Philippines in the second leg of the semi-final on Thursday to advance 4-2 on aggregate.
After a first half of few chances at My Dinh Stadium and a second period that was following a similar pattern, Quang Hai finally opened the scoring in the 83rd minute, before substitute Cong Phuong ended the Philippines’ hopes four minutes later. 
James Younghusband scored a consolation goal for the Philippines in the final minute but it was Vietnam who progressed to their third final and a date with the 2010 winners Malaysia next week.
The visitors began the match knowing they needed to score at least twice to have any chance of reaching the final and they gave as good as they got in the opening 15 minutes.
Vietnam finally got the crowd off their seats in the 28th minute when Doan Van Hau broke down the left, cut back and curled in a neat ball with the outside of his left foot that Quang Hai met with an acrobatic effort that was directed straight at goalkeeper Patrick Deyto.
Quang Hai was seeing more of the ball and his strike from distance soon after hit teammate Nguyen Anh Duc, before Phan Van Duc blasted his follow-up effort high and wide.
A lovely low delivery from Van Hau was then just inches away from being finished by Quang Hai, before a superb sliding clearance from Carli de Murga denied Anh Duc an easy tap-in at the back post as Vietnam took full control of the game.
The Philippines came back into the match in the last five minutes of the half, though, and Iain Ramsay fired an effort just over from fully 30 yards as the sides went in goalless.
Sven-Goran Eriksson would likely have heard plenty about the ‘Miracle of Hanoi’ in the build-up to the game, and the Swede’s half-time job was to inspire the same kind of performance that produced the famous 2-0 victory in 2010.
But the Philippines struggled to create goalscoring opportunities and as the hour came and went, the likelilhood of any kind of repeat seemed improbable.
James Younghusband replaced de Murga midway through the half as the Philippines sought extra creativity going forward, but it was Vietnam who finally broke the deadlock with seven minutes remaining.
Van Duc cut into the penalty area from the left, skipped past Amani Aguinaldo and slid the ball to Quang Hai to tap home from inside the six yard box.
And the hosts wrapped the game up just two minutes later when Cong Phuong burst into the box with intent before getting a lucky break off Adam Reed and riffling past Deyto.
The Philippines pulled one back in the last minute when James Younghusband stabbed into the net from a few yards out following Ramsay’s corner from the right but it was too little too late as Vietnam returned to their first final since winning the competition in 2008.
Pak Hang-seo’s side will travel to Kuala Lumpur’s Bukit Jalil Stadium for the first leg on December 11 before the 2018 AFF Suzuki Cup champions will be crowned at My Dinh Stadium after the return meeting on December 15.

  1. Now what is life after Suuzuki Cup? Asian Cup maybe lurking early next year but as a host nation to ASEAN games in december of 2019 what are the activities of our U22/23 team? Puro lng ba TSG mga magagaling na PFF coaches o mag start na kayo ng training para hindi naman tayo mapahiya sa sariling homecourt? Ang tatahimik ng mga "A" license coaches natin walang imik . Ganun cguro pag takot tumanggap ng kritisismo ang mga PFF instructors kaya tumahimik na lng mga bata nila. Padrino aystem pa rin kasi pag coaching career mo nakasalalay kaya bulok sistema ng Philippine Football.Si Palami may agenda , ang PFF technical heads meron din kaya walang asenso dito ang.mga homegrowns ang nasa gitna at naging kawawa dahil walang unity at direksyon ang Pilipinas.

  8. I don't get the point lining up players who hasn't even expressed their will to play for the philippines. And besides that, U23 qualification is not on FIFA calendar so you can't call up foreign based players unless BOTH the players and their respective clubs agree, but why would they?

    So don't try to rely on foreign products when it comes to underage tournament. The only way to compete there is to develop local talents, or just keep getting thrashed like 0-8.

  9. from the above comment we might as well close down the national league.
    Football is fucking screw with this mindset.
    Only dumb players will say they want to play for Azkals at at young age and regret it later..

    ReplyDelete
  10. The Azkals team is becoming a foreign legion...nothing against Fil-foreign players but the formula of 80% foreign based players is too much..we need to follow the blueprint of our ASEAN neighbors who invest on grassroots development which will produce home-grown quality players that majority of Pinoys can relate or identify with.

  11. I agree. The youth tournaments should be used for the development of local players. If foreign based players will be allowed by their clubs to participate then thats good. But priority should be on local players.

  12. Kahit mga elite players pa yan kung wala ring training camp starting january useless pa rin mga foreign born ninyo!! PFF puro palpak!! Ilang buwan na mga teams ng Indo, Thais, Viets , Singapore atbp peri tayo walang naririnig sa PFF.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Training camp? Hindi feasible ang training camps para sa senior mens team. Ang training camp puede lang sa mga under 23 pero sa senior mahirap yan dahil sa club commitments etc. Kahit mga top countries na sasabak sa World Cup ay wala nang training camp. Magkikita lang mga yan siguro 2 weeks bago magumpisa ang tournament. Ang dapat kasi wag natin ipilit yung attacking style. Yung Miracle sa Hanoi nangyari yan dahil sa defense natin. Counter attacking dapat ang football natin dahil ang mga players natin kahit fil-foreign ay naglalaro sa domestic league na hilaw pa. Ok lang kung lahat yan ay nasa top tier sa Europe sige attack tayo ng attack pero majority ng players natin ay nasa domestic league lang na hindi pa kasing lakas ng Indo, Thai or Vietnamese leagues.
