Malaysia opened the 2018 AFF Suzuki Cup with a 1-0 victory over Cambodia in Group A on Thursday.
Norshahrul Idlan Talaha scored the only goal 30 minutes into the game when he headed home from eight yards after Syamer Kutty Abba’s driving run through midfield eventually allowed Zaquan Adha to send in a decisive cross.
In the group’s other game, Vietnam cruised to a 3-0 win over Laos to lay down an early marker for the tournament.
