Thailand led 1-0 during a mangle pleasantness of Teerasil Dangda’s header, yet Indonesia constructed a stirring quip in a second half with goals from Rizki Pora and Hansamu Yama Pranata putting them in a pushing chair to lift a trophy.
The best chances fell Thailand’s approach in a initial half, with Chanathip Songkrasin initial slamming far-reaching from tighten operation on 8 mins after capitalising on Rizki’s bad behind pass.
Seven mins later, Sarawut Masuk volleyed good over after Koravit Namwiset had knocked on a Theerathon Bunmathan low cross.
Indonesia’s hopes of removing an early idea were shortly dealt a serious blow, as pivotal male Andik Vermansyah was stretchered off after unwell to redeem from an progressing knock.
Without a successful 24-year-old, a Garudas struggled to get things going and went a idea down in a 33rd minute.
Theerathon churned in a teasing severe cranky into a box for Teerasil to furnish a bending header past Indonesia screw Kurnia Meiga to put a Thais into a pushing seat.
That was a 28-year-old’s sixth idea in this year’s foe and 15th overall as he sealed in on a all-time scoring record of 17 hold by Singapore fable Noh Alam Shah.
The visitors should have been dual adult only before a break, yet Chanathip dismissed true during Meiga after being teed adult by a Tristan Do cutback.
Indonesia were a remade side in a second half yet as they began to find some-more fluency in their game.
After a few earnest attacks, Alfred Riedl’s side finally found a deserved equaliser on 65 minutes.
Left winger Rizki skipped past Sarach Yooyen’s plea before unleashing a image from only outward a box, that took a disagreeable deflection off Do to mistreat Kawin Thamsatchanan in a Thailand goal.
Things got even improved for a home group 5 mins after as a soaring Hansamu rose a top in a chastisement area to accommodate Rizki’s teasing inswinging dilemma and send a leather looping over a faraway Kawin.
Thailand manager Kiatisuk Senamuang reacted by throwing on impact subsitutes Siroch Chattong and Charyl Chappuis, yet a twin was incompetent to get a War Elephants going.
Eventually Indonesia were means to see out a victory, yet Thailand will be happy that they are going into Saturday night’s second leg during a Rajamangala Stadium in Bangkok with a changed divided goal.
