Marred by laser beam incidents,
RI loses 0-3 to M’sia
in AFF Cup final

Indonesia lost 0-3 to host Malaysia in the Asean Football Federation (AFF) Cup finals first leg, which was marred by laser beam incidents shot by Malaysian supporters to Indonesian players.

Indonesian players decided to walk out from the pitch in the 54th minute, complaining about low visibility after being shot with a number of laser beams by Malaysian supporters.

After a negotiation, all the players got back to the pitch, but just few minutes after the restart, Indonesia conceded three goals.

Vietnam, which lost 0-2 in the first leg of AFF Cup semifinals in Kuala Lumpur, earlier complained about the use of the laser by Malaysian supporters.

Indonesia will host the second leg of the AFF Cup final on Wednesday.
