Cambodia will take on Timor Leste in the final of the Hassanal Bolkiah Trophy 2018 that will take place in two days.

In the semi-finals last night, Cambodia defied the odds to dump defending champions Myanmar out with a fabulous 2-1 vitctory while Timor Leste edged Singapore by the same scoreline.

Even that failed to ignite Myanmar into action as the score stayed until the final whistle as the Cambodians kept it tight at the back.

In the meantime, the Fandi Ahmad-led Singapore were denied a place in the final by a resolute Timor Leste side who came back from a goal down in the first half to win the tie 2-1.
