Singapore, Malaysia, Philippines can learn from Vietnam's remarkable rise

It feels like more than a month since Vietnam were lifting the 2018 AFF Suzuki Cup to be crowned Southeast Asia's best.

The celebrations in Hanoi after the final win over Malaysia in December were something to be seen, but there could be more to come. On Sunday, the Golden Stars defeated Jordan on penalties to move into the last eight of the 2019 Asian Cup. A showdown now awaits with heavyweights Japan on Thursday. An upset couldn't happen, could it?

Philippines Asian Cup destiny down to do-or-die match vs. Kyrgyz Republic

There were three parts to the Philippines plan of action at the Asian Cup.

The first was to not lose to South Korea by many. The second was to take a point from China. The third was to defeat the Kyrgyz Republic in the final Group C showdown.

Two wonder goals from We Lei and a late strike from Yu Dabao gave Marcello Lippi's men the victory in Abu Dhabi. Team Dragon now have six points from the first two games and move into the round of 16 with...
