Asian Games 2018 Media Watch – Group Stage Round 3

With the final round of group games already underway at the 2018 Asian Games, Thailand’s likely exit has caused a Social Media meltdown, with many calling for high-level resignations and an overhaul of the incredibly flawed system which has led them to the verge of embarrassment and humiliation.

Vietnam’s impressive 1-0 victory over Japan leads them to finish top of Group D with a perfect defensive record and can look to build on their run to the finals at the u23 AFC Championships earlier this year.

Malaysia can hold their heads high after a remarkable triumph over defending Champions and pre-tournament favourites South Korea, leaving them with only pride to play for in their final game against Bahrain.

Lastly, hosts Indonesia face Hong Kong in what could be a decisive match. With both sides already assured of qualification, they are set to battle it out to see who can secure a more favourable standing going into the knockout stage.
