5 talking points as Vietnam beat Malaysia to lift the AFF Suzuki Cup 2018
#1 Offside or No Offside?
Both Vietnam and Malaysia headed into the second leg of the Final after drawing the first one. The Golden Dragons had raced into a two-goal lead at the Bukit Jalil four days ago, before being pegged back by their opponents.
As a result, the tie was still for the taking and even one goal, either way, could’ve been the decider.
In the end, that proved to be the exact case, with Vietnam taking the match by a goal to nil. However, the way in which the opener was scored proved to be a contentious decision, as replays suggested one Vietnam player to be offside.
Nevertheless, the goal was given, which helped the Golden Dragons seal the tie.
