HANOI: The Malaysian Tigers failed to roar in their match against Vietnam and suffered a 0-3 defeat at the hands of the home team in an AFF Cup Group B match amidst much controversy as both teams were reduced to 10-man at the My Dinh National Stadium, here tonight.
Match referee Ryuji Sato from Japan gave the marching orders to Vietnam striker Nguyen Van Toan in the first half and to Malaysian defender Muhammad Azam Azmi Murad in the second half.
The match kicked off in rather windy and chilly conditions, with the Malaysian Tigers finding it difficult to secure their footing early on due to what could be regarded as a damp and slippery pitch.
However, as the match progressed, they were able to adapt to said conditions.
Contrary to how the Malaysian squad fared, the Vietnam strike force was causing all sorts of problems, although it was Malaysia which drew first blood through Muhammad Mukhairi Ajmal Mahadi in the ninth minute.
Possession was almost equal for both teams until Vietnam earned a corner on the right flank and the complexity of the match took a drastic turn.
The ‘Golden Star Warriors’ – coached by Park Hang Seo – raced into the lead when Nguyen Tien Linh’s downward header off skipper Do Hung Dung’s corner bounced into the top corner, leaving goalkeeper Ahmad Syihan stranded in the 29th minute.
