Vietnam Go Home

They won the ASEAN Cup back in 2008 but since then Vietnam have struggled to make any real impact in the quest for regional bragging rights.

The 2012 vintage will head home today no doubt to a crescendo of jeers after failing to make an impression in this year's edition.

They drew their opening game 1-1 with Myanmar before losing to Philippines 1-0. The Azkals seem to becoming their own personal hex; this is the second event in a row when the Vietnamese have had their dreams dashed by the Philippines.

In their final game Vietnam lost 3-1 to the Thais who reached the semi finals with a 100% record.

In the other game Philippines defeated Myanmar 2-0 to reach the semi finals for the second successive time.

The final Group B games will be played later today with Malaysia playing Indonesia and Laos meeting Singapore. Indonesia just need a draw at Bukit Jalil at what is likely to be a very firey affair!
