The Philippine football team advanced to the ASEAN Football Federation (AFF) Suzuki Cup semi-final round by having a draw against Myanmar in Hanoi, Vietnam on Wednesday.

The Filipinos' defense proved solid at the Hien Truong Stadium in Nam Dinh as it kept the aggressive Myanmar team goalless throughout the game.

After the half-time break, the Burmese team had at least 3 scoring attempts at the goal. They were initially aggressive but gradually lost steam toward the end.

The Philippines' goalkeeper Neil Etheridge proved dominant throughout the match keeping the Philippine team alive and well for the next round.

They will face Indonesia in the Final 4, while defending champion Vietnam square off with Malaysia for the semi-finals.
