Brunei U-19 take on Malaysia today
Monday, September 16, 2013

The national football under-19 team's search for their first point at the ASEAN Football Federation (AFF) Under-19 Championship 2013 continues today when they take on Malaysia at the Gelora Delta Sidoarjo in Surabaya, Indonesia.

Brunei have lost all three of their group B matches so far and, as a result, find themselves at the bottom of the group.

Malaysia, coming off a 2-1 win over Thailand on Saturday, now sit in fourth position with four points.

Malaysia must win their encounter against Brunei if they are to have any chances of qualifying into the next round.

Brunei are already out of the competition and will only have their pride to play for.

They will close their campaign on Wednesday against Vietnam at the Petrokimia Gresik.

The national team's latest game was a 6-0 thrashing at the hands of Myanmar on Saturday at the Petrokimia Gresik in Surabaya, Indonesia.

According to the AFF official website, Myanmar scored three goals in each half to collect three points to keep them mathematically in the running for a place in the semis.

Myanmar opened the floodgates in the fourth minute through Aung Thu.

Naung Naung Latt and Si Thu Aung scored in the 35th and 45th minutes respectively to close out the first half with a comfortable lead.

Nyein Chan Aung added a fourth goal in the 59th minute.

Aung Thu netted his second goal of the day in the 71st minute before Maung Maung Soe wrapped up the game with a final goal in the 79th minute.

Myanmar will meet Vietnam today and Thailand on Wednesday and they must win all the matches for a chance to advance into the next stage.

Japan are the defending champions in the tournament after defeating Australia 3-1 in last year's final in Laos.

Since its introduction in 2002, Myanmar have won the tournament twice in 2002 and 2005. Thailand and Vietnam are also two-time winners.

Thailand clinched the tournament in 2007 and 2011 while Vietnam won it in 2006 and 2010.
