SHAH ALAM: The Harimau Malaya face a monumental task to qualify for the final of the AFF Suzuki Cup after going down 2-1 to Vietnam in the first-leg semi-final at the Shah Alam Stadium.

Backed by a capacity crowd, Malaysia even took the lead in the 14th minute through midfielder Mohd Safiq Rahim penalty kick but the determined Vietnamese fought back with goals from Vo Huy Toan in the 32nd and Nguyen Van Quyet in the 60th, to put themselves in the driver’s seat for a place in the final.
