Bangkok: Malaysia appeared to have one foot in the semi finals when they took an early lead against Chinese Taipei on Matchday Two, but a spate of missed opportunities cost the Southeast Asians dearly as they fell to a 4-2 defeat.
MALAYSIA v VIETNAM
Addie Azwan’s side now has it all to play for against unbeaten regional rivals Vietnam, and the former men’s national team player is under no illusions as to the game’s significance.
“Tomorrow’s game against Vietnam is important,” he said.
“We know Vietnam’s game well. Last year we drew (1-1) at the SEA Games, but seeing their two games here, I see that they are different.
“They have different preparations, different players and a different focus. We will play for the win.”
While Vietnam were held by the Malaysians in Kuala Lumpur last August, a repeat of the same result would be enough to ensure they top Group B on seven points.
