There were no surprises in the final matches of Group A tonight as favourites and surprise package Timor Leste make the semi-finals of the AFF Vietcombank Under-19 Championship.

Even though the two matches were played concurrently, both Vietnam and Timor Leste did just enough to pick up the final full points to book their places in the next round of the competition.

Hosts Vietnam beat Malaysia 3-1 at the Hang Day Stadium while Timor Leste thumped Singapore 2-0 at the Vietnam Youth Football Training Centre.

At Hang Day stadium, Vietnam proved to be more than a handful for Malaysia when they comfortably win the tie 3-1.

Tran Duy Khanh nailed the opener after just 13 minutes as Doan Van Hau then doubled the advantage in the 78th minute.

And while Malaysia did managed to pull a goal back through Muhammad Jafri Chew a minute to the end, still Vietnam made sure of the victory in front of their own fans moments later off Nguyen Tien Linh.
