Indonesia win AFF U-19 title
Tuesday, September 24, 2013

Ilham Udin Armaiyn was the hero after helping Indonesia to the ASEAN Football Federation (AFF) Under-19 Championship for the first time after a thrilling 7-6 penalty shootout win over Vietnam on Sunday.

After an intense 120-minute battle which ended 0-0, Indonesia maintained their composure to seal the win, according to AFF's website.

After Vietnam's Pham Duc Huy missed his spot kick, Ilham knew it was up to him to deliver.

The striker took his time and sent a low shot to the right, and for brief moment, there were some sighs when his kick hit the right post at the Gelora Delta Sidoarjo Stadium in Surabaya.

But when the ball turned in, the jam-packed 35,000 capacity venue erupted into a might roar.

Both sides threw everything they had in the 30 minutes of extra-time, but the goal never came and the game was forced into the dreaded shootout.

It was Indonesia's first win in the tournament since it was introduced in 2005 and was the country's first major title in over 20 years.

Adelino de Oliveira's hat-trick helped Timor Leste finish third after a 4-2 result against Laos in the day's earlier match.

Brunei failed to progress past the group stage after ending the tournament without a point to show from five games where they let in a total of 30 goals.

Their only goal came in their last game, a 6-1 loss to Vietnam. They started off with a 5-0 defeat to Indonesia before being hammered 8-0 by Thailand. They were then beaten 6-0 by Myanmar and 5-0 by Malaysia.
