Zaquan Adha double powers Malaysia to Suzuki Cup semifinals alongside favourites Vietnam

Malaysia booked their place in the semifinals of the Suzuki Cup on Saturday with a 3-0 win over Myanmar that ensured they advance to the tournament's last four alongside favourites Vietnam.

Vietnam finished top of group A thanks to a comfortable 3-0 win over already-eliminated Cambodia while a brace from Zaquan Adha following Nohshahrul Idlan Talaha's opener earned the Malaysians second place as a result of an impressive performance against Myanmar.

Myanmar needed only a draw to progress but, in front of a vociferous crowd at Kuala Lumpur's Bukit Jalil Stadium, the home side made most of the early running and it came as little surprise when Nohshahrul put Malaysia in front.

Syahmi Safari's darting run down the right saw him find Mohamadou Sumareh with time and space in front of goal but, when his attempt came back off the crossbar, Nohshahrul scored from close range.

Two minutes into first-half injury time, Safawi Rasid was brought down inside the penalty area by Soe Moe Kyaw after latching on to Sumareh's through ball and Zaquan scored the resulting penalty.

Malaysia swept past Myanmar to reach the Suzuki Cup semifinals.

Myanmar did little to suggest they would find a way back into the game and, with two minutes left on the clock, Zaquan added the third goal when an attempted clearance by Kyaw slammed into the striker's head before looping into Kyaw Zin Htet's goal.

Malaysia will play the winners of group B, which will conclude on Sunday with leaders Thailand playing Singapore while the Philippines travel to Jakarta to face Indonesia.

The Vietnamese secured top spot with a routine win over Cambodia, with goals coming from Nguyen Tien Linh, Nguyen Quang Hai and Phan Van Duc.

Tien Linh gave Vietnam the lead with a 39th-minute header and, two minutes later, Park Hang-seo's side were two ahead thanks to Quang Hai's side-foot finish.

Van Duc put the result beyond any doubt just after the hour with a clinical shot on the turn from just outside the area.
