Vietnam v Thailand AFF Cup Final 2nd Leg

20' - Teerasil levels the score with a header from a free kick.
28' - funny old game so far. Cagey is the best word to describe it with the Thais content to let the Vietnamese play in safe areas
30' - Peter Reid has stuck with Kosin in goal
31' - Le Cong Vinh cuts in from the left and drives just wide
32' - game held up for a few seconds as the pitch is invaded by a giant prophylactic
38' - Vietnam's final ball has been poor so far
42' - Nattaporn beats the offside trap but his header is weak
44' - Thanh (16) charges through the Thai defence but his finish goes harmlessly wide

HALF TIME - Vietnam v Thailand 0-1

48' - corner from Sutee clears everybody and threatens only an advertising hoarding
50' - nice passing and moving by Vietnam but, not for the first time, the last ball goes awry
51' - Vietnam's keeper is not have a good night with his clearances
54' - good overlap down the right flank and a good cross but Kosin comes out and collects well
56' - it's kicking off just outside the Thai penalty box! Free kick given for home team but Kosin collects
59' - can the players keep their discipline as we enter the last 30'?
61' - tackles are flying in with gay abandon!
65' - shot from 20 yards by Tai takes a deflection. Corner is cleared
66' - Vinh stretches and volleys just wide
66' - Arronachai replaces Teerathep for the Thais
68' - plenty of possession for the Vietnamese but too often it's that final ball
70' - Thais have everyone except Teerasil behind the ball
70' - Aronachai dances through the Vietnamese defence but one defender too many
72' - Sutee shoots straight at the home team's keeper. It's the last thing he does and Arthit replaces him
73' - sweeping Vietnamese break down the right but cleared by the Thai defence
80' - a bit quiet on the pitch so the camera shows some well fed miserable looking party cadres. Surely in the name of comradely fraternal nonsense then should have shipped in some farmers?!
83' - Aronachai sees his header cleared off the line
90 + 3' - Suree fouls Le Cong Vinh on the edge of the box. It's in off Le Cong Vinh!!!

Full Time Vietnam v Thailand 1-1 (3-2 on aggregate)
