As we kick off the action in the 2018 AFF Suzuki Cup on Thursday, one of the first matches on display is between Laos and Vietnam.
Laos enter this year’s AFF Suzuki Cup knowing that they have a chance. Having made ten group stage appearances in the past, this particular Laos side has already gone one better than their predecessors in 2016. Having failed to qualify back then, the nation has something to prove, and they would love to go on a giant-killing spree to show how far they have come.
Vietnam, on the other hand, are full of confidence. They somehow managed to win the AFF Suzuki Cup ten years ago, and are coming into this tournament on the back of some terrific displays at both the senior and the U-23 levels. In Laos they face a spirited side, but even if they are playing away from home, one would have to put their money on Vietnam.
Nonetheless, a clash between these two neighbouring countries is always a mouthwatering prospect, and we sure cannot wait to get the action started at the AFF Suzuki Cup 2018.
