1′ – Kick off!
5′ – Five minutes on the clock. Both teams still settling into the occasion. No clear cut chances yet for either sides.
15′ – Much of the game still being played in the midfield. Both the defences have managed to nip the attacks in the bed so far.
18′ – CHANCE for Indonesia. Asnawi Bahari exchanges pass with Egy Maulana to enter the Myanmar box and crosses in from the byline. Myanmar goalkeeper Sann Sat Naing gets a hand to it, but the delivery reaches Osvaldo Haay in the centre who fails to direct his header into an open goal.
23′ – Another attack from Indonesia, this time down the left as Saddil Ramdani makes his way into the box and fires a ball across the goal. Fortunately for Myanmar, no Indonesian attackers are there to tap in and they manage to clear the danger.
30′ – Half an hour played. The Indonesian defence have given very little space for Myanmar to work here! Brilliant display from Indra Sjafri’s side so far.
34′ – Once again, Saddil Ramdani plays in Osvaldo Haay on goal, but his effort is easily captured by Myanmar goalkeeper Sann Sat Naing.
42′ – This time, Firza Andika with a long ball into the box which is met with a header by Osvaldo Haay. But his effort goes over the goal.

45′ – One minuted added on!
45+1′ – Another gilt-edged chances for Osvaldo Haay. Saddil Ramdani picks him with a good cross to the box, but Osvaldo directs his header straight at the keeper from close range.
HALF TIME: MYANMAR 0-0 INDONESIA!
Indonesia with the better opportunities in the first half, but their inability to apply the finishing touch means the two sides go into the break goalless. More to come in the second half. Stay turned!
Meanwhile, we are almost back underway for the second half at Rizal Memorial Stadium in Manila. Indonesia have made a change at the break with Sani Fauzi replacing striker Muhammad Rafli.
46′ – Second half begins!
47′ – ANOTHER CHANCE! Indonesia begin the second half just like how they ended the first. Osvaldo Haay is played through on goal by Egy Maulana and the Indonesian forward fires in a shot which is once again saved by Sann Sat Naing! Myanmar are still in this game, thanks to their goalkeeper, and also to Indonesia’s wastefulness in front of the goal!
54′ – MYANMAR CHANCE! Almost a piledriver from Myanmar as Myat Kaung Khant fires a left-footer from the edge of the box. He has the goalkeeper well beaten, but the powerful shot misses the top corner by a matter of inches!
57 ': GOALLL! Evan Dimas opened the scoring for U22 Indonesia with a close shot from Egy's cross from the right wing.

PREVIEW U22 Myanmar vs U22 Indoensia:
Myanmar have many advantages before this match as they have up to 5 days off. In addition, this team also does not have any key players getting injured.
U22 Myanmar excelled in winning the ticket to the semi-final with the top position in Group A. Reparding play style, U22 Myanmar’s form is stable with good control and deploy. The achievement of Myanmar U22 is gained from Malaysia’s poor performance at this SEA Games edition as well as to win good results against the weaker opponents Cambodia, Philippines and Timor Leste.
Meanwhile, Indonesia U22 has abundant energy. They played pressing and counterattack with the highest speed. Despite being in the hard-fought group with Vietnam and Thailand, Indonesia has proved their level.
The Garuda doesn’t take a long rest as much as their opponent. The 4-0 victory over Laos saw Osvaldo leading the top scorer list and playing the full 90 minutes.
However, the drastic solid play of Indonesia U22 will be a real obstacle for U22 Myanmar. Besides, the Indonesian players are better in strength and quality. Therefore, Indonesia is still higher rated for a place in the final of SEA Games 30.
Prediction: U22 Myanmar 1-2 U22 Indonesia
