A free kick close to the sideline is whipped dangerously into the box by captain Dung Do Hung, out comes Malaysia's 'keeper Azri Ghani but he doesn't get to the ball and Linh Nguyen Tien heads it home.

It took 111 minutes, but it'll be worth the wait to these fans.

Cue chaos as the Phu Tho stadium erupts, flares go off, Linh launches his shirt into the air - it's a crucial goal for the hosts and Linh is the hero tonight, he won't care about the yellow card he gets for the shirtless celebration.

7:45pm - Men's football: Vietnam 0-0 Malaysia at half-time

45 minutes in and nothing to separate these two sides, Malaysia frustrating Vietnam and keeping it solid, Vietnam have more of the ball but struggling to find that decisive pass or moment of magic.

7:15 - Women's volleyball: Vietnam down Philippines, head to gold medal final

Vietnam have defeated the Philippines in three sets, 25-23, 25-19, 25-17.

It means that Vietnam progress to the gold medal match against reigning champs Thailand, while the Philippines will play Indonesia for the bronze medal.
