SEA Games 2019 men's football: Unstoppable Vietnam re-encounters Indonesia, but the scenario may be changed

The two semi-final matches of SEA Games 30 men's football took place under completely different scenarios.

In the first semi-final, Indonesia U22 took a 2-0 lead but they needed the extra time to beat Myanmar U22 to win a ticket to play in the SEA Games 30th finals.

Having better squad qualities, Indonesia U22 took a 2-0 lead after 71 minutes thanks to goals from Evan Dimas and Egy Vikri. However, two consecutive goals within 1 minute (79 ', 80') of Kaung Mann and Naing Tun helped Myanmar U22 equalize 2-2 in the surprise of many fans.

This result was maintained until the end of the match, forcing both teams to enter the extra time. At this time, Myanmar U22's physical strength has been greatly reduced and that was also the time Indonesia U22 showed their bravery. Two goals of Osvaldo Haay and Evan Dimas sealed a 4-2 win for Indonesia U22.

In the second semi-final, Vietnam U22 played much easier than imagined against Cambodia U22. Striker Nguyen Tien Linh opened the scoring in the 19th minute, making Park Hang Seo's team much easier to play in the remaining time. Then Ha Duc Chinh shone with a hat-trick, extinguishing all hope of Cambodian football.

Overall, Vietnam U22 won 4-0 and will meet Indonesia again in the final match of men's football at SEA Games 30th. This is also a replay of the group stage match when Indra Sjafri lost 1-2 to the Vietnamese team.
