[Video] Lilipaly puts Indonesia on the brink

25-Nov-2016

With Thailand already assured of first place in Group A, the battle is on for the second semi-final berth as Singapore, Philippines and Indonesia duke it out for second place.

Indonesia have finished in second place, as they win 2-1 against Singapore while hosts Philippines were on the wrong end of a 1-0 scoreline against Thailand.

Khairul Amri scored the first goal of the night for Singapore, volleying home in the 27th minute thanks to an assist from Safuwan Baharudin.

However, the Garudas replied after the break as Andik Vermansyah smashed home on the run to drag his team back into the game.

Sarwut Masuk then put Thailand ahead to leave Group A in the balance with all three teams below them tied with 2 points each.

But there was joy for Indonesia as Stefano Lilipaly scored to put them ahead for the first time all night and within touching distance of the knockout stages.
