In the meantime, Silawan Intamee gave Thailand the lead after 22nd minute from close before striker Taneekarn Dangda then doubled the advantage in the 51st minute with a left-footed strike from the end of the Philippines box.
Ploychompoo Somnonk then provided the finishing touch deep in injury time to set up the final against the host.
