Vietnam made a 3-0 victory over Laos at Hanoi’s My Dinh station on November 25, moving on track for a semi-final berth in the 2014 Southeast Asian Football Championship - AFF Suzuki Cup.

Vu Minh Tuan put Vietnam ahead after 27 minutes with a low shot and striker Le Cong Vinh doubled the advantage with a close-range tap six minutes from time before midfielder Nguyen Huy Hung wrapped up the victory with the third in the dying moments of the games.

With Indonesia losing 4-0 to the Philippines, Vietnam now need only one point from the last group game against the Philippines to reach the semi-final stage.

Earlier at the opening Group A match on November 22, hosts Vietnam held a 2-2 draw with Indonesia.
