Indonesia, who impressed in their draw with reigning champions Thailand and win over the Philippines in their earlier matches, fully deserved the three points against Timor-Leste as they dominated from start to finish. To their credit, Timor Leste - who proved a hard nut to crack before eventually falling to Thailand - held their own in the opening minutes but as the first half progressed, they had to defend desperately.

Backed by several thousand fans, Indonesia started confidently and took the lead in the 22nd minute when Marinus Mariyanto headed home a perfect cross from Septian David, who has impressed in every match so far.

Timor-Leste nearly had the perfect answer in the 28th minute when a counter-attack saw Danilson Conceicoa's goal-bound shot blocked by Indonesia goalkeeper Kartika Ajie.

The second half was more of the same with Indonesia dominating but Luis Milla's men were guilty of being wasteful, with Osvaldo Haay's headed miss from close range in the 62nd minute among the most glaring.

As Indonesia struggled to find the crucial second, Timor-Leste's confidence grew and they began to have more possession as they went in search of the equaliser. Indonesia, however, had the chance to put the game to bed in the 82nd minute but Saddil Ramdani's scorching effort from just over 20 yards was superbly saved by Timor-Leste goalkeeper Fagio Agusta.
