AFF U22 Championship: Group B match time, venue changes

The last two matches in Group B of the ongoing ASEAN Football Federation (AFF) U22 Youth Championship will take place at the same time in different venues on February 22, according to the latest announcement of tournament’s organisers.

Aside from host Cambodia which has already secured the group’s top position, the remaining teams are vying for a berth in the semi-finals. Currently, Indonesia have two points, while Malaysia and Myanmar have just one point each.

Due to unpredictable circumstances, both matches will be held concurrently at 6.30pm (local time).

Cambodia will play Indonesia at the Phnom Penh National Olympic Stadium. Meanwhile, the Myanmar-Malaysia match, previously set to kick off at 3.30pm, will take place at the RSN Stadium, with a capacity of 5,000 seats.

In Group A, Vietnam ranked first after a goalless draw with Thailand on February 21.

Both of the teams had booked their spots in the semi-finals of the regional competition by winning against the Philippines and Timor-Leste.

The semi-finals of the tournament will be held on February 24. Thailand will play against Cambodia, who tops Group B, in the round. Vietnam will meet the runner-up of Group B.
