AFF U18 Championship: Vietnam crash out, Malaysia, Australia through to semi-finals
After the last matches in group B: Thailand defeated Malaysia and Vietnam was hammered by Cambodia, Australia and Malaysia have made it through to final-four stage with group A competitors Indonesia and Myanmar.
The AFF U18 Championship is well on its way to yet another exciting conclusion after the groups were sealed. While Indonesia and Myanmar made it through from Group A, Malaysia and Australia pipped hosts Vietnam to make it through to the semifinals from Group B.
Vietnam ranked just behind Malaysia and Australia on the table, they were handed a big opportunity to take the second spot to qualify for the semifinals yet Malaysia lost to Thailand and Vietnam too were beaten by Cambodia, pulling themselves out of the tournament.
Australia, on the other hand, cruised to a win in their final group match of the AFF U18 Championship, beating Singapore by five goals to nil. The Socceroos dusted off a three-nil loss two days ago to Malaysia, to finish top of the pile as well.
As a result, Malaysia and Australia join Indonesia and Myanmar in the AFF U18 Championship 2019 semifinals, which will kick off on August 17. While Malaysia will take on Indonesia, Australia will go up against Myanmar.
The two losers in the semis will meet each other in a third-place match on August 19 while the final will also be played on the same day.
