The neighbors played out a 2-2 draw in the first leg in the Vietnamese capital of Hanoi on Friday, leaving the tie hanging in the balance.

Vietnam hitman Nguyễn Tiến Linh continued his incredible run in the competition by scoring the opening goal for the Golden Star Warriors.

The War Elephants fired back in the second half, with Poramet Arjvirai leveling the scores in the 48th minute before Sarach Yooyen put them in front 15 minutes later.
