KUALA LUMPUR, Sept 18 -- Harimau Muda B took the runners-up spot in

Group A when they blasted the Philippines 6-0 in the final group match of the

AFF Under-19 Championship 2011 that was played yesterday at the Youth Training

Centre, Yangon.

According to Asean Football Federation website, Malaysia needed at least a

draw to ensure that they advance into the semi-finals ahead of Cambodia.

They came out with all guns blazing to take a comfortable 4-0 lead at the

break.

Malaysia added two more goals in the second half to ensure their passage

into the next round behind group winners Thailand.

Chief coach of Malaysia Ismail Ibrahim was satisfied with the performance,

but cautioned: "Against Vietnam, it will be a totally different game, and we

will have to strategise for it."

"I think the players have learnt their lesson from the loss to Thailand

which has made them more determined to do better against a side like Vietnam in

the semi-finals," he said.

As early as the second minute, Harimau Muda B were in front when striker

Muhammad Akmal Ishak kneed the ball past Philippines goalkeeper Nicholas

O’Donnell off a free kick from Muhammad Shafiq Azman.

Akmal doubled Malaysia’s lead with his second goal of the afternoon off

a cross from Mohamad Ridzuan Abdunloh Pula with an exquisite back flick.

The Philippines fell further behind in the 18 minute off an own goal

from Joseph Bellezon before the Malaysians wrapped up the first half with the
